Hi everyone, my name is Juno
*FOSTER TO ADOPT*
The staff and volunteers say that I have been through a lot in my life and believe I deserve to go to the very best home with people that treat me kindly and love me unconditionally.
I love nothing more than being close to people that I trust. When I say close, I mean actually sitting in their lap and having intimate cuddles.
When I sit down and really think about what sort of home would be perfect for me, all of the following thoughts come to mind; a safe home where I can be inside and part of the family, a warm bed, leisurely daily strolls, going on adventures, playing games and mucking about with my human companions, a family that will take care of me when I am unwell and that are committed to helping me build up my confidence around new people, animals and environments.
It is my one wish to find a safe a secure family home where I can live out the rest of my days.
I can go to a home with another dog, but they must be calm and not boisterous as I don’t like other dogs jumping all over me!
At this time I will be a foster with a view to adopt until I fully recover from a leg injury.
If you think I would be the perfect companion for you, please call the Adoption Hub for more information.
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
