Adopted

Hi everyone, my name is Jackson

I’m one of the best looking boys in town, don’t you agree?

I’m searching for a home where I will be spoilt and give lots of love.

I’m a very social boy, I light up the room when I walk in and everyone wants to swoon over me, who can blame them!

My new family must be willing to brush my lush fur to keep it tangle free and help me avoid getting hairballs from grooming it too much myself.

I have a conditional call irritable bowel disease, this is easily managed with a bland diet, the staff will be able to tell you more about this when you meet me.

I’m pretty keen to start my next adventure, so please complete an online expression of interest form if you’d like to meet me!

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
