Adopted

Hi everyone, my name is Lola

I am the biggest sweetheart you are ever going to meet. I love being around people and I give the best hugs – the staff affectionately call me ‘Nonna Lola Bella’.

I have been a mum in the past, my carers here are not sure how many litters I have had, but they sure do know it is now my turn to find the perfect home, were I will have a family of my own who love me.

I am true to my breed, and just love sniffing great aromas out. However, sometimes I can get a little shy around new environments and objects that I don’t know – but with your help I know I will flourish.

I wish I had a friend who enjoys the outdoors and going on walks, and who also loves to just snuggle up and hang out together. Also, I’m friendly with other dogs too!

If you think you could offer me the perfect home please give the Lort Smith Adoption Hub a call on 9321 7240 to arrange a meet and greet with 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
