I’m only 13 months old and I’ve already spent more than 125 LONG DAYS without a home. That’s a big part of my short life.

A shelter environment is not the right place for a dog to grow up. I need a real home.

I’m Angel. I ended up in an animal shelter when I wandered too far from home all the way back in October. I was young, lost and alone. I waited there for months for my person to claim me but they never came.

It appeared no-one else wanted to make me a part of their family either but thankfully I was transferred to Lort Smith Adoption Centre in December to help find me a new home.

I’d love to say the time has flown by but it hasn’t always been easy. I’ve watched so many other dogs arrive and be chosen to go to new homes while I wait here.

They’re good to me at Lort Smith. I get plenty of walks, pats and attention but I want to find a home.

I know I’m bigger than a lot of the other dogs. However, surely there’s someone out there for me.

I need an owner who is active, will take me on long walks and commit to ongoing training. I'm looking for a home with no small animals or livestock.

It has to be my turn to find my forever home soon.

If you think I sound like the perfect companion for you please call the lovely staff at the Lort Smith Adoption Centre for more information on how you can make an appointment to meet me.


Things to consider before adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime.  But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption. 

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life.  Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life. 

Before you decide, have you considered the following?

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Can I afford a pet? 

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
