Adopted

Hi everyone, my name is Bobby

I’m a handsome young lad who is seeking a quiet loving home.

When I arrived at Lort Smith I was a very scared little boy who needed a lot of TLC and guidance to show me that the world isn’t such a scary place. I’ve spent the past few months with a wonderful foster carer and I’m now ready to find my forever family.

I’m still a bit shy when I first meet new people. I’m searching for a home with no young children and where I will be kept safe as an indoor only cat.

I love other cats, I come out of my shell when I’m around other confident felines.

Please come on in and meet me, I will be hanging out with my friends at Lort Smith until the right home comes along.

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.

  • 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.

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
