Hi everyone, my name is Mojo

*FOSTER TO ADOPT*

I was surrendered to Lort Smith when my carer fell ill and was no longer in a position to provide me with what I need.

I am a big, friendly handsome goofball. I love nothing more than spending time with my human companions, going for daily strolls, playing with my toys and have snuggles on the couch as the end of the day.

I will need to go to a home where my new carers will be committed to helping me with my weight loss journey as I have let myself go over the last few months.

I am a big boy and tend to pull on the lead. Therefore I will need to be adopted by someone that is a strong and confident handler and willing to work on my loose leash walking. I would also love to go to dog training classes so I can build upon my already learnt skills.

Unfortunately I will not be able to go to a home with any small animals as the thrill of the chase is just too tempting for me.

For now, it is best that I am the only dog in the home as not only do I need to build up on my confidence around them but I do kinda like all the attention to myself!

For the next two weeks, I will be a foster to adopt whilst I get my skin allergies under control.

If you would like to learn more about me, please call 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
