Hi everyone, my name is Dallas
I’m a sweet little lady who is looking for the perfect forever home. I was surrendered to Lort Smith when my carers could no longer provide me with the attention and time I need.
I gave birth to a litter of kittens that I doted on and raised with the help of a foster carer until they were big enough to find their own families. Now it’s my turn to find a family!
I’m seeking a home where I will be kept strictly indoors only, so that my pretty pink nose doesn’t burn in the harsh sun. I love getting scratches behind the ears and curling up in a comfy bed.
I might just be the cat you’ve been missing from your home! Please complete an online expression of interest form and I’ll have my people, contact your people.
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
