Hi everyone, my name is Molly
I was surrendered to Lort Smith when my previous carer was no longer in a position to look after me.
I love to hang out with human friends and receive lots of pats… and I mean LOTS of pats. I am very food orientated and I am always interested in receiving a sneaky treat.
My new family will need to ensure I receive regular brushes to ensure my beautiful hairstyle remains soft and silky. A girl needs to look her best after all… I do like receiving a brush – https://youtu.be/zEmYcpswoAE
I have never been around other animals, so it’s probably not wise to start now.
If I sound like I would suit your lifestyle, 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
