Adopted

Hi everyone, my name is Delana & Rose

We know what you’re thinking… what are two incredibly beautiful ladies like us doing here?

We have been wondering the same thing.

We are inseparable sisters that would love nothing more than a quiet home where we will be pampered with all of our favourite feline essentials.

Delana is the shy one. She will seek out cuddles when she is ready but will let you know when she has had enough by giving you a little tap on the hand. Delana will need to receive regular brushes to keep her hair looking purrfect and soft. I on the the other hand am more outgoing and happy to sit and have chin tickles.

We might be a little nervous when arriving in our new home but once we feel settled we will certainly venture out for attention and affection.

If you are interested in meeting us please speak to our friends in the Adoption Hub.

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
