Hi everyone, my name is Olivia
I’m a strikingly beautiful young girl looking for a home that can provide me with lots of play time and mental enrichment, and a warm spot on the couch to curl up.
When I first came to Lort Smith, I had a very upset tummy. I went out to foster care while I was treated and I’m proud to say everything is moving through me as normal now!
I am currently on a special diet that I can be carefully and slowly transitioned off at around six months of age. I may always have a sensitive stomach so it’s important my new family understands my diet cannot be changed too much or too fast. No treats under the dinner table for me sadly! I have a medical disclaimer for this, and the staff can tell you more.
I love getting cuddles and playing with toys. I’d be best suited to an indoor only lifestyle.
Please complete an online expression of interest form if you would 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
