Adopted Pets – 2011
ONYX (m) born 23/10/11
Onyx (m) born 23/10/11 (8 weeks) is a gorgeous medium size blend boy (possibly Lab x) who is just adorable. He and his sister Ebony are very friendly, playful puppies that are mostly interested in playing, eating and sleeping at this age. Onyx is quiet by nature and very well socialised and healthy as you can see. For 8 week old puppies, He’s well behaved and doesn’t whine or cry when left alone, too busy playing…or eating….or sleeping.
He loves chewing toys (and hands..ouch!!), playing tug o war with his sister, and having lots of cuddles. He’s very people oriented, so will make a great family member.
There’s not a lot more to say about such young pups except they are so gorgeous it’s not funny, will grow to be approx medium size (Onyx may be heading towards large) and provided they are given loving, stable homes that will be committed to their future training, they will be happy, well adjusted dogs. They do not need to be homed together.
He is with Val at Campbelltown
FIFI (f) & FELIX (m) silver tabbies
FIFI & FELIX are sister and brother, born approx 5/10/09. Both are bright, happy and affectionate young cats. Fifi is a small and slender silver tabby, with delicate features. She is confident and playful, and adores sitting in the sun watching the world go by through the screen door. Felix is a slender silver tabby with striking dark markings and a beautiful pointed face. He is cautious at first but loves to play and is very excited about balls, toy mice, hiding under rugs and dashing through the cat tunnel. Both look up longingly to ask for pats. They snuggle up together at night and would love to go to a home together if possible.
They are now with Trudy at Pyrmont
EBONY (f) born 23/10/11
27/12/11 Ebony has been adopted by Nicole at Frenchs Forest
Ebony (f) born 23/10/11 (8 weeks) is a gorgeous medium size blend girl (possibly Lab x) who is just so cute. She and her brother Onyx are very friendly, playful puppies that are mostly interested in playing, eating and sleeping at this age. Ebony is quiet by nature and very well socialised and healthy as you can see. For 8 week old puppies, they’re well behaved and don’t whine or cry when left alone, they’re too busy playing…or eating….or sleeping.
She’s a confident little girl, a bit more so than her brother and therefore a touch more independent. She still loves her cuddles too, so will come and get hugs regularly and then go off and play again…or eat.
There’s not a lot more to say about such young pups except they are so gorgeous it’s not funny, will grow to be approx medium size and provided they are given a loving, stable home that will be committed to their future training, they will be happy, well adjusted dogs. They do not need to be homed together.

Duchess is a very affectionate kitten and will meow at you insistently to get her pats and cuddles.

We rescued lovely Molly (born approx Oct’06), and her 3 kittens born Oct’07, from Death Row in the nick of time. All kittens have since found loving homes. Molly is a beautiful looking short haired white cat with the most lovely golden eyes and a cute tabby & brown tail. She is rather independent but is happy to let you come up and stroke her.
She was an adorable loving mum and will settle in well with a caring family.
Cats with pink noses/ears are more susceptible to sunburn which can lead to skin cancer, so Molly is best suited being an indoor cat.
Molly is currently with Andrea in Darlinghurst
29/8/11 FERN(f) and PETAL(f)- born 5/6/11
17/12/11 Fern & Petal have been adopted by the Richards’ family in Port Kembla
Fern and Petal are sisters. Their mum Winifred ended up at the pound on death row with a surprise tummy full of little ones. Winifred has given them an amazing start to life despite enduring so many challenges and now they are looking for their forever homes together. We’d like for them to go together so they will never have to be alone.
Petal is a stunning fluffy girl with panda eyes and patches. She’s a very gentle natured bunny with lots of love to give. She is calm around people she knows and enjoys being petted and spoken to. She will need some care with her long soft coat each day.
Fern was the first one out of the nest and is somewhat of a leader- nothing upsets her much and she enjoys discovering new things. She is very affectionate towards Petal and likes to keep an eye on what she is doing at all times.
These girls would make beautiful companions and would be a great addition to the family. They are used to an indoor playpen environment where they are litter trained and have lots of toys such as tunnels and cardboard boxes to keep them occupied. They will come desexed (when they are old enough) and vaccinated against the calicivirus.
Fern and Petal are with Julia in Rockdale.
AKIRA (f) 6mth old large mixed blend (possibly Dane x). born May 2011 approx
25/11/11 Akira is a gorgeous big girl, who is the easiest dog to look after. She’s wonderful with dogs, cats, people and just loves company and attention and likes nothing more than belly rubs and cuddles.
Akira is great on lead and a pleasure to walk. She is also very well trained and responds to hand signals for sit, drop, stay, come and can eat. She’s a bit of a sook and a lounge lizard and will lay quietly around. In saying that, she’s still a pup, albeit a tall girl, and loves to play. She’s not hyper at all or in your face, just sweet and cuddly.
She’s perfectly behaved inside and is fully house trained and is currently homed with cats, who she loves to play games with. Akira would love the company of another dog and a family all her own. If you can offer this gorgeous girl a loving home with plenty of cuddles and time, you’ll be rewarded with lots of love
Akira is with Val in Campbelltown.

He’s very submissive and will roll onto his back for tummy rubs at every opportunity and will need an owner that will help him grow his confidence and be patient with him as he realises he doesn’t need to be timid.
He’s getting used to the lead and will be house trained and given basic obedience. A home with another, slightly more confident dog would be good for Atlas to learn from and keep him company.

They are also extremely clean cats, they learned the litter box straight away and don’t shed any hair. They both have sleek soft coats and extremely good looks. They love to play with toys, out of all the fancy things I’ve given them, shoelaces have proven to be their favourite. They enjoy human company and being with each other. They have great appetites and aren’t fussy about food at all, yet somehow maintain super fit physiques!

SPRITE (f) Staffy blend born 9/7/11 approx
17/9/11 Sprite is a 10 week old Staffy blend pup who is full of puppy love and enthusiasm for life. She is very sweet, loves human and doggy company and is as a puppy should be, quite lively and wanting to explore everything.

Her foster carer, Chris said “Sprite couldn’t be a happier dog. Lots of running in the backyard and playing. She even gets on well with our cats! We have started to crate train her for sleeping at night and she’s responding very well. She hasn’t barked at all, except for a few playful barks. She’s great with kids too. My daughter plays with her a lot and we had a 4 yr old over today and Sprite was happy around him too.”
Sprite is with Chris at Mascot.
REX Cattle/Kelpie blend born 21/7/11 approx
6/10/11 Rex has been adopted by the Drake family at Killarney Heights
29/9/11 Rex is a very well behaved young pup who loves to play with other dogs and kids. He will be a breeze to train and is keen to enjoy the learning experience. He seems very eager to chase birds, so perhaps a home without birds/chickens would be ideal.
Rex has already learned to sit and is currently getting used to a leash but not yet walking on the lead. He listens to commands and ceases unwanted behaviour readily. He is an absolute pleasure to have here in my home and I hope that Rex finds a home worthy of his beautiful nature.
Rex is with Darren in Matraville

SALSA (f) born Dec 2010 Renamed BELLA
8/9/11 “Salsa is a 10mth old beautiful little pooch, who we think is possibly a Tibetan Spaniel cross. As she has only just come into care, there’s not much we can yet say, only that she is very loveable, quiet, and calm. She doesn’t like leashes at the moment but will be trained over the next couple of weeks to get used to them”
11/9/11 DaVinci has been adopted by Rhianne in Waverley, VIC.
Update 31/8/11 “DaVinci is the epitome of puppy. He’s clumsy, his legs are everywhere, and whenever he wants something, he pulls out the big puppy dog eyes. Since he was four weeks old he was always the life of the party and that hasn’t changed. His favourite game to play with other dogs is Bitey Face. In fact, the only game he plays is Bitey Face! He does love his toys, especially balls, and is very focused when it comes to playtime.
DaVinci prefers not to be left alone. Having been with his siblings and then integrated into another pack, he has always been around dogs, and much prefers to have their company. He has a fair amount of energy but nothing that a long walk or a play in the park wouldn’t sort out. He is a good listener and I’m able to take him off-leash at the park. He knows several commands but, still being a very young pup, can get distracted easily.
DaVinci is very well socialised and friendly to any and all breeds of dogs. He thinks other dogs are instantly his BFF’s, whether they’re Chihuahuas or Great Danes. He is housetrained, leash trained, and is now starting to learn a variety of tricks.”
Here’s a video of him: http://youtu.be/k4z_Y-ODn10
DaVinci is with Darren in Matraville

4/4/11 update from Lucy – Kitty is a medium haired black gorgeous dainty little girl with a touch of white on her tummy and a fluffy tail. She is a quiet little kitten, giving a tiny meow of greeting when you come into her room. She is happy to mix with my other cats and approaches them for play.
Kitty loves being brushed and made a fuss of and loves to cuddle up in your arms or lap when she isn’t busy playing or sleeping. She is happy to play quietly in her room and would be suited to a quiet family with a gentle cat or kitten as a playmate. Kitty will need regular gentle brushing to keep her coat looking gorgeous.

4/9/11 Guinness has been adopted by Alan & Liz at Helensburgh

Guinness is quiet when left alone and will happily lay down and chomp on a bone or play with a toy.
He’s eager to learn new things and has conquered his fear of stairs (and random dumped baby car seats) in just a day.”
HAMISH (DONNY) (m) – grey/brown tabby, (nicknamed after Kerrie’s husband Donny) Born approx 3/11/09
Hamish is playful and cuddly, and likes to be nursed on his back and have his tummy scratched.
Hamish, Hope & Hannah, 3 week old triplets, were discovered abandoned in the backyard of a derelict house by the builder who was renovating. It was a very hot day and as they became distressed in the heat he moved them to a shady spot . Mum was never sighted at all so they were taken to Kerrie, an experienced wild life carer, who found them to be rather poorly and close to death. Besides bottle feeding, they had to be given fluid under the skin over a few days (as instructed by the mobile vets), they were too small to put on a drip and this was their only chance. Thankfully Kerrie has given fluids many times before and despite the odds, all 3 of the little amigos survived.
Their approximate date of birth is 3/11/09. They came into care at 3 weeks and took 3 weeks to wean as they were so small. Plus they had a virus from their Mum and were on antibiotics. It was very touch and go for a while
Hamish is now with Pam at Cecil Hills with Dudley
DUDLEY born 10/11/09
Dudley is a super sleek and glossy short-haired black male, with a gorgeous chocolate brown tummy and golden eyes. He is lithe and tall and stretches way up on his hind legs. Dudley is energetic and active with a quirky little personality – curious, adventurous, outgoing, talkative and companionable. He follows you around from room to room to see what you are doing, loves splashing around in water, delivers toy mice at lightning speed and shares the fun of tossing them around with you, and finally will sit beside you for a wonderful cuddle when he is tired out. He is not at all timid and would suit larger households with older children or a single person or couple looking for a very devoted new best friend. Dudley needs company and activity, so would prefer a home with other animals or people who are home at least part of the day.
Dudley is with Pam and Nicole in Cecil Hills
Dudley was SPONSORED by Sandra from 1/8/10 for 3 months! “Thank you for sponsoring me and helping with the costs of my care, whilst I am looking for my own forever home. Love from Dudley & SPRA x x x ”

23/7/11 Shadow is approx 4mths old, he needs some lead training but has basic obedience already (sit, drop etc). He is good with other dogs and has no problem with cats. He loves cuddles and seeks reassurance. He’s quiet for a pup but that’s probably due to him being a little overwhelmed at the moment.
More details to come on Shadow as we get to know him a little better.
Shadow is with Val in Campbelltown
MAVERICK(m) born 5/1/11 -very friendly
He is a little dynamite, very active and loves to explore. As soon as I open the bathroom door he is out like a flash. He purrs like a steam train – as soon as he sees you – you don’t even have to pat him! He is very friendly and loves to be patted. He has now been desexed.
Cairo – Afghan Hound / Pharaoh Hound blend born 29/5/11
Cairo is incredibly well behaved for such a young pup. He’s quiet and independent – he doesn’t rely on the others to amuse himself, he’s quite happy sitting there with a toy, or snuggling up to someone else (most likely Sahara). He’s the least vocal of all four of the pups and likes his food! He weighs the most but, actually, doesn’t scoff it like some of the others.
Cairo is now with Sarah in Richmond
Sahara- Afghan Hound / Pharaoh Hound blend born 29/5/11
Sahara is with Darren in Matraville

Note: As these girls are Shar Pei blends, they may have breed specific health issues that any potential adopter will need to be aware of and committed to. SPRA is happy to discuss this further and supply some relevant breed information
“Noodle has only just come into care so it’s not possible to give a detailed insight into her personality. However, she has shown that she is extremely friendly (in just a few hours she and her sister have gone from barely any socialisation to hopping on our laps for cuddles) and just a little bit cheeky. There seems to be zero aggression – not even with food, with she happily shares – and is so far a quiet little pup.”
Noodle is with Darren in Matraville
BIBI (m) Cavoodle
We are working with Bibi on his house training and lead training and whilst good, has some room for improvement. He has basic obedience and is a well behaved little man. He loves cuddles and affection and is eager to please. Bibi is quite an intelligent dog, so will learn quickly and respond well to training. Due to his intelligence, he will require mental stimulation as well as physical.
If you think you can offer Bibi a loving, active home, please contact us. Bibi’s adoption fee will be used as a fundraiser for the medical costs of Boo, a male Maltese that we have in care who was severely neglected.
Adoption fee to be discussed at time of application.
Bibi is with Anne at Dural.
Panda (tricolour) is a Shar Pei blend pup around 12-14 weeks old
Panda was surrendered to us with her brother Noodle. “Panda has only just come into care so it’s not possible to give a detailed insight into her personality. Like her sister, she is very friendly (in just a few hours she and her sister have gone from barely any socialisation to hopping on our laps for cuddles) and just loves attention. There appears to be no aggression – not even with food, with she happily shares – and is so far a quiet little pup.”

She’s mostly lead trained, still working out the kinks but is coming along very well. Jaffa is being house trained too and is nearly there. She’s eager to please and easy to train and would make some family very happy. She’s playful but not in your face and is happy to go lay down quietly and play with a toy or have a snooze.

PRESLEY (m) Mastiff blend- sweet & gentle-born Nov’09
24/5/11 Presley is people and dog friendly, a little camera shy but when the camera was put away he became a big softie.
He’s an approx 18mth old Mastiff X boy, who’s just so handsome. Presley is a lovely natured man who is good with dogs of all sizes and likes to play. He’s very timid and shy at present and we are working with him to gain his confidence around people. Presley knows how to sit and shake hands and is currently being house and lead trained. He’s a sweet, gentle soul and whilst a little afraid, shows no signs of agression at all. Once he gets to know you, he’s so lovely and will stick by your side, wagging his tail and loves cuddles.
Presley was also fantastic in the car (4hr drive) and sat quietly or laid down and had a long snooze. He was no trouble at all. Presley is medium in size and fully grown. We’ll have more information on this gorgeous man as he settles into care.
Presley is with kate at Strathfield.
MIAH (f) German Shepherd blend – young adult-very sweet (approx 18mths)
9/6/11 Update from Adriennna :
Miah is an absolute pleasure to have. Miah has made a complete transformation from the dog we picked up from the pound just four weeks ago, we could hardly get her to move she was so scared. Miah is becoming more confident every day.
She is very sweet and sookie when we are in the house, and is a whole different dog when we go to our local off leash dog park. She loves to play with all the dogs down there especially those staffies that she can have a good rumble with. She is so funny when she races around waiting for someone to chase her or play tug of war with her too. She has a real puppyish nature when she’s playing bounding around and jumping over small dogs which are in her way. Miah also LOVES the water!
Miah is extremely intelligent she is completely house trained, she sleeps in the house and will wait till she is let out to go to the toilet. She can sit and come on command and is perfect on and off the leash, she is a very loyal dog. Miah is a beautiful girl so we often get comments about how gorgeous and unusual she looks.
Miah is a very sweet gentle natured dog and would be perfect in a family home where she has kids to play with (she loves giving them licks in the face when we bump into them out and about) or with anyone who will love and give plenty of attention to her forever.
25/6/11 Miah is now with Jade at Campbelltown
BELLE (f) Brown Chinchilla coat, Younger bunny
17/4/11 Soon to be desexed and vaccinated, she is vet checked and healthy, probably younger due to lack of dental markings, chinchilla coat
Belle is a calm, cuddly possum. She is a sophisticated blue-grey Chinchilla rabbit in her first years of life. Her previous owners surrendered her to the pound much to our shock as she is the most kindly mannered, sweet hearted girl with so much love to give. Put her on the grass outside and she’ll express all her joys with binkies (literal jumps, leaps and flips which express extreme happiness) and will flop out, snuggled into her own fur when she is relaxing inside. She is very clean, litter trained and enjoys playing with her toys- we think shes a smart girl! She will cuddle with you on the couch or in bed and would make a beautiful companion.
Belle would like to find a home with people who can make her part of their family and that can give her daily cuddles and playtime. Can you give this special girl a second chance?
She is residing with Clare and Alex (together with Leia) in Dulwich Hill for now, but hopefully soon this cuddle bear will be someone’s new best friend.
MANGO (f) Whippet blend born 8/3/11- very sweet.
Mango is adorable. Everything she does – whether it be yawning, tumbling around, or snorting in her sleep – is too cute for words. She’s a great listener, likes to be with you in a room, as opposed to running around and exploring, and is a quick learner. She is currently being housetrained with brilliant results and will soon start being trained on the leash.
Mango is people and dog friendly. She has no fear of bigger dogs and will play with them the same way she plays with puppies. She loves her rope toys and loves playing tug-o-war with other dogs. But she especially likes to curl up with her people and watch her stories on the TV.
Mango is with Darren in Matraville
Big thanks to Karen from Dogzonline for her $50 donation for Mango. This will go to buy her some premium food to help her grow.
CASHEW (f) renamed TIA
7/6/11 Cashew is an 8 weeks old Terrier blend pup and will grow to be medium in size.
She is proving to be very trainable. Listens well… Is pretty sooky and loves cuddles and staying close.
” I’m too cute.
I do everything a puppy does. However, standout points are; I am smart, I understand when roused on, I don’t care about the cats and when they warn my curiosity off, I obey. I stir the dog because I have realised she is all talk. I love cuddles and attention from the children as they are much more interesting than the adults. At the moment I walk 90% ok on the lead, however pulling will have to be looked at once I am bigger and at the moment, puppyness, is making me drop to my back and be pulled along. I also bite the lead however, this new walking method is very new and I’m loving every moment! ”
Cashew is with Sara at Richmond.
TOBY born Jan’09 approx
JESSIE (f) Tenterfield Terrier 3yrs old
May 2011 – Jessie is a Tenterfield Terrier and is approx 3 yrs old. She is very sweet and loves to play with other dogs. She’s great with kids and cats and is lead and house trained too.
Jessie is quite people focussed, so will make a wonderful family addition. She was born with a congenital deformity in her front leg, which has had surgery to correct it and has no ongoing issues, however, when she plays hard, her leg will get a little sore and she’ll need a rest. She shows no signs of this affecting her play time and enthusiasm.
Jessie is with Megan at Granville.
JAZZY(f) born approx 22/11/08 renamed Tiffany Jane Benedikta
Jazzy is with Maria in Belmore
BLOSSOM (f) [pale ginger) loves people, very affectionate
Blossom is 7yrs old and is a very friendly cat. She is a pretty champagne ginger with tabby markings. Her owner was unable to keep her and surrendered her to the pound from where we rescued her in the nick of time. Blossom is a female ginger which is not very common to find.
Blossom is a beautiful girl – extremely affectionate and likes to talk to you. and loves being near you all the time. As she loves to be near you it is hard to take photos as she tries to rub her head on the camera every time it is pointed at her.
She would fit in easily with a family who has the time to show her lots of affection which she will return a thousand fold.
note – Blossom has been tested and is Negative for FIV
Blossom is with Liesel in Mt Colah
KAYLA (f) gorgeous & smoochy, born April 2007
Kayla is 4 yrs old, is Tan and white with a little Wolfie beard, which is just so cute. She has these soulful eyes that make your heart just melt. She is mostly short haired but has this unusual long Wolfie fur along her back only.
Having just saved her from death row, she is settling in with her carer and putting some weight on. We will be assessing her skill levels with regards to obedience and house training etc as the days go by. She knows how to sit and we believe she is lead trained. Kayla is a gentle soul that will make some family very happy and will give loads of love in return for theirs.
Kayla is with Valerie at Campbelltown
BAXTER (m) born 26/6/10 approx
30/12/10 Baxter is as sweet as his photo. This little Mastiff blend pup is a real wiggle bum, so we have nicknamed him Beans.
Always happy to see you and he is great with other dogs. Unlike most puppies his age, Baxter is pretty easy going and after a good tumble and play likes to have a long nap. He would be great in a family, with another dog or with kids. He really doesn’t mind as long as he gets a hug a day and lots of good food. Beans would love to go to puppy school with his new family. He loves learning, toys and loves loves treats! He is currently toilet trained and we are working on getting sit and shake. Baxter looks like he will be a medium sized dog, very sweet temperament and is approaching 6 months of age.
23/2/11 Jade writes “Baxter is a fantastic little guy who loves nothing more than affection from humans & other dogs. He gives you the biggest wiggle each morning and loves to give kisses. He gets along well with people & dogs, loves a walk & is getting used to swimming down at the river. He is very well behaved inside and at the moment he is sleeping outside with my dog in a kennel and I am currently training him to walk on a halti harness.”
Baxter deserves a loving forever home and will give you loads of love & puppy eyes in return.
Baxter is with Jade in Campbelltown
VEGAS (m) gentle natured, born approx 16/5/10
29/5/11 Vegas has been adopted by Michael at South Maroota
16/3/11 – Vegas is a gorgeous Staffy blend, white with tan patches & black markings on face, approximately ten months old. He was a staff favourite whilst in the Pound and it’s not hard to see why! He’s quite a powerful dog but has very good manners. He can become slightly distracted by other dogs but responds well to commands. He knows how to sit, lay down, roll over, shake, and “shake other one.” He is a great listener, eager to please, and always has a smile on his face!
Vegas has been introduced to my own pack now and is absolutely great with them. He can be a little heavy-handed, not realising his own size, but is never aggressive. When other dogs tell him off, he is happy to walk away, or kiss them (a lot) to apologise. He’s great with all sized dogs, including puppies. He’s very mindful of them, jumping away so he doesn’t step on them, and gratefully accepting lots of licks!
He is not a jumper, he’s housetrained, and he’s an angel on the leash. He has energy bursts but, for the most part, lazes around the house or yard sleeping and vocally dreaming! He doesn’t mind being left alone for periods of time but, obviously, likes to be with people. He’d make a great family pet for anyone who’s willing to give him the love, time, and hugs he deserves.
Vegas is with Darren in Matraville
LUCKY (m) renamed BUDDY
Lucky is a very lucky dog. He is a silky terrier blend with a gorgeous personality. He is energetic, inquisitive, affectionate and gentle, the kind of dog that you would like to have by your side. When the vet said that they thought he was almost 7 years old, we thought impossible because he is so energetic! He loves putting his head out the window in the car to take in the wind, taking long walks, eating and jumping into your lap and giving you little licks on the hand. He is toilet trained, good with big and small dogs, and with people. He also does this little dance when he gets excited, where he puts both his hands up in the air (like he is cheering) – very very cute!! The family that adopts this little guy will be very lucky!
Lucky is with Julie and John in Miranda
OSCAR 18mths friendly & smart born 26/8/09 approx
21/5/11 Oscar has been adopted by Susan & Patrick at Oberon
21/3/11 Oscar has been with us for 3 weeks now and has gone from being an emaciated mutt to a stunning, muscular, shiny coated “head turning” dog.
We have a cat which bosses Oscar around and is quite mean to him, but Oscar still keeps smiling and trying to be friends…. one day perhaps. On walks, we meet small children on bikes, skateboards and others tearing around and screaming, and he just keeps smiling.
He loves “still” water but is a little unsure of the waves, we’re working on that.
He has had regular romps with our Great Dane friends, which is a sight to behold. On walks, he greets all dogs regardless of size with a sniff and a wag of the tail and friendly interest. We have horses next door who we’ve introduced him to and he was fairly disinterested in.
Oscar eats well but waits for his food until told. He’s learned to respect our right to eat without begging or hanging around. He stands back at doorways now so as not to barge us through. He’s learned to jump into our big high 4WD. (he was very proud the first time he did that!)
Although a young playful dog who loves running around, Oscar is equally happy to lie by our side quietly. He does not chew furniture, shoes etc.
Oscar has no vices at all. He looks the part of a guard dog, which is nice, but is a gentle giant.
Oscar is with Sara at Richmond.
BOSTON (m) born 19/12/10
Boston(m) is very laid back compared to his brothers. He doesn’t make much noise, he plays nicely, and is a bit of a serial hugger. When the three boys were first rescued, they were very wobbly on their back legs, and it was causing them pain to stand for long periods of time. Now, however, they dash around the courtyard like it’s nobody’s business! Boston is normally the one playing referee (as in, he sits and watches, but when there’s commotion, he gets right in the thick of it). Saying that, he is also the fastest of the three, and enjoys being chased… as well as getting stuck in plant pots..
ANNABELLE – approx 4yrs old
Anabelle is a very beautiful, charming and clever little cat. She’s adventurous, loves climbing and chasing insects, but is also quite content to sit back and watch the world go by. She is a little shy at first with new people but once she gets to know you, she’ll be your friend for life. Annabelle is a true lady when it comes to dining. She grazes and will savour her food.
(Annabelle is pure white so will need to be kept away from strong sunshine to avoid sunburn & risk of skin cancer)
Annabelle is with Ruth in Birchgrove
Big thanks to Candace and John from Balmain, for their kind donation of $150 towards Annabelle’s food and care
ARIZONA(f) born 19/12/10
7/5/11 Arizona has been adopted by Julia from Cammeray
Arizona is located with Darren in Matraville
KARMA (f) very sweet born 23/3/10 approx
Karma is toilet trained, lead trained, has no food or bone aggression. She knows basic commands ,Karma is medium energy, but still puppy like, Karma is a small dog, she weighs 12 kg
Karma is still learning about many things outside her home i.e., backfiring in cars and looks for direction. Karma goes to the dog park a couple times a week, and fits in really well, there can be up to 20-40 dogs at my local dog park at one time and she assimilates marvelously. She has a new best friend at the dog park, a Great Dane called Ode.
Her favourite pastime is lying on her back in the grass, loves to play fetch, doing comando rolls on the grass and loves to be praised when she accomplished something.
She is in the process of learning to swim, which is progressing well.
Karma’s personality is one of a kind, everyone she meets fawns all over her, she brightens up anyone’s dull day. She loves being around people and animals and children.She’s even joined in with my cats chasing lizards in the backyard .Her fovourite toy is a plush teddy bear, she takes it back and forth with her to the backyard and doesn’t mind if one of the dogs borrows it.
Karma has access to the house and the backyard and is well behaved, she lives with two dogs and two cats plus humans, and plays with the next door neighbours dog Lolli.
Karma is with Kate at Strathfield
GINGA(m), OREO(m) & MAGGIE(f) born 25-12-10 approx
one has been adopted and the other 2 are being rehomed in the vet adoption programme in Kellyville
Ginga, Oreo & Maggie were found in bushland at 3 weeks of age. Sadly their brother had been run over nearby and mum was nowhere to be found. They are now happy, healthy, loving kittens ready to find their new furever homes.
“GINGA” is the biggest and most adventurous boy, always up to mischief and leader of the pack when it come to getting into trouble. He was the first one to make it to the top perch on the scratching post and likes to think he is in control at feedtime as well. He is also very loving and playful, and enjoys having his tummy rubbed.
“OREO” is usually one step behind his brother when it comes to adventure but is actually a little braver and is the first one to come back out after something has scared them all into disappearing into the wardrobe. He is also the first one to dart through a door when it’s opened and likes to hide in the bedroom or under the lounge. He loves having his ear scratched and purrs really loudly.
“MAGGIE” is the typical little sister, Maggie is much smaller than her brothers and tends to keep to herself, observing their silly activities but not always joining in unless provoked. She can give them a bit back though, if the need arises, but seems to prefer being a lady rather than a tomboy. She is by far the most affectionate and is happy to curl up on your lap for a sleep.
They are with Erin & mum Beth at Picnic Point
RANGER (m)German Shepherd/Kelpie 18mths approx
4/4/11. Ranger is a little bit shy at first but once he gets to know you is absolutely doting and adorable. He is very respectful and smart and has learned basic obedience already (after 3 days). Ranger is still young and puppyish and he loves all other dogs no matter what size, he will always try and get over to them at the park to have a play. This boy is not at all possessive over his food and is very gentle in everything he does, often getting bowled over by his playmate Bosley. Ranger is quite active and loves to be off his leash and run as fast as he can while exploring the park. He is still learning to come when he is called all the time but we know its only days till he’s got it! He is a very sweet boy and just loves to be cuddled.
Ranger is with Adrienna at Nth Narrabeen
YOGI (m) Terrier blend born April 2010
23/3/11 Yogi is Cream & white with wiry hair, and was wearing a black collar. He is approx 12 months old, shy but very very sweet, just loves to be picked up and snuggled and given lots of love….
5/4/11 What a little treasure. He is sooooooo gentle. Yogi will make someone a very loyal and loving companion. He lacks confidence at the moment but we are working on that with him, along with basic training. He loves going for walks and is great with kids and other dogs, he loves to snuggle. Yogi seems to be house trained and can get a little startled when visitors arrive. He’ll bark a little, but settles as soon as he is confident again. With ever so much love and patience he will be a forever dog for someone. We love him already.
Yogi is with Anne at Dural
CHLOE & kittens AMELIE & TOBY
BOSLEY (m) big happy goofball
4/4/11 Bosley or ‘bozzy’ is just a big goofball. When he is excited his tail spins in circles, not your standard back and forth! He is a very happy go lucky boy who is also very loyal. He will sit whenever he is asked but not for long before he is up jumping around again. When he is excited this jumping seems to be aimed at the person around him but with some persistence we are getting rid of this naughty habit. Bosley can also be very gentle when it’s dinner time, he will take treats from you very gently and is not possessive at all. He is a little bit of a noise maker, when he is playing with ranger he always is making some kind of weird ‘arrr -arrrr-ooorrrr’ noises which are very funny to all of us around. Bozzy is perfect on lead and off, he won’t pull at all or leave your side for a minute. He gets along with all other dogs although sometimes they seem to be a bit nervous with him bounding up to them! Bosley is a very sweet boy and would love a perfect home consisting of lots of love and attention
Bosley is with Adrienna at Nth Narrabeen together with Ranger
SAMPSON (m) born 17/9/09
16/04/11 Sampson and Lola have been adopted by Claire and Andre of Clovelly
SAMPSON – male, born approx 17/9/09 – Sampson is a very handsome ginger tabby kitten, with gorgeous marmalade coloured fur.
Sampson is a real character; he is very affectionate and loves to give head butts and “kisses”. He can be very cheeky and likes to bend the rules while managing to obey them and comes up with creative ways to get what he wants. An example of this is he likes to drink directly from the jug that is used to refill his water bowl, if the water is low in the jug, he will dip his paw in and then lick the water off his paw.
Sampson has many quirky and endearing habits, he is a master fly catcher and loves to groom you and chortle away. Sampson is playful but also just as happy to flop down somewhere and snooze and watch his surroundings. Sampson is best suited to a home without small children and with another cat for company.
Once he knows you he is truly a delight and will make a wonderful addition to your family. Sampson has been named after Sampson the Church cat from the Church Mice Book Series by Graeme Oakley
LOLA (f) born Oct’07
Lola ‘Hello’ Lola- After a hard day’s play
We rescued lovely Molly and her 3 kittens born Oct’07, from Death Row in the nick of time.
Lola, her remaining kitten, is white with black markings on her back and a white nose, with a tabby tail
Lola is simply adorable and has a knock out personality. Lola would be suited to a household with at least one other cat, or adopted with her mum, she is so sweet and full of energy and she needs the interaction with cats as much as she needs it with humans.
Sampson and Lola are with Ally in Leichhardt
.17/4/11 Patchey has been adopted by Michelle & Justin at Peakhurst who have been fostering him since his rescue from the pound.
DAKOTA (f) born 19/12/10
Dakota(f) is the second smallest of the pack and possibly a Rottweiler cross. She is around the 6/7 week old mark but her spell in the Pound hasn’t knocked her confidence. She’s very affectionate and a great listener. She loves to give lots of kisses and likes nothing more than curling up on your lap and watching the world go by. For such a young pup, she’s very easy-going, and is a great companion to Arizona. Like her roommate, she can be very curious, and is always heading off into lands unknown, unafraid, tail wagging.
HONEY(f) born 30/10/09
HONEY is a small short-haired champagne ginger tabby girl with white face, chest, tummy and legs, and amber eyes. She is gentle and independent, with a very refined attitude – she doesn’t expect to be chased around the house by cats or children and likes to live a quiet and civilised life. She can be aloof when there are too many animals or people around, but one-on-one she is very loving. Honey doesn’t sit on laps but she does roll over to have her tummy rubbed and will come and sit close to you. She really enjoys her shaded outdoor enclosure and can be a cheeky little miss. Honey has been happy to have a gentle older cat around for company. She would do well in quiet home with a little space to explore independently. With her pink nose, she needs to be kept out of the sun to avoid skin cancer.
Honey is with Kathi in Petersham
GOLDIE(m) & STITCH(f) very sweet loving couple
10/4/11 Jenny, their carer, has adopted them into her family
Goldie is a very, very handsome male golden blonde Pomeranian/chihuahua blend (small dog). He is approximately 9 1/2 (at Jan 2010) years but could be younger.
He does everything that Stitch does and is very devoted to her. Goldie loves lying on a lounge and having a sleep while Stitch will smother you with kisses all day long.
Stitch is a female tan/black Silky terrier blend (small dog) that is blind in her left eye. She requires no medication other than the occasional clean out with Liquid Tears ($7.95 from chemist) if the eye looks dry. Stitch is an extremely friendly, lovable girl who wags her tail constantly. She is 4 1/2 years as at January 2010.
She loves being inside and as long as let out regularly for wee runs she is very clean. She sleeps in laundry at night and when I am out and no problems at all. Stitch is not the sort of dog who would be happy left outside alone.
Goldie follows Stitch everywhere so we would prefer them to go to a home together. They are very attached and will do anything for a Schmacko or similiar treat. They have always lived as indoor dogs.
They both have very sweet temperaments. They are not yappy dogs and blend in with all Jenny’s gang (dogs & cats) as if they have always lived there.
Both dogs have had all services done – desexed, microchipped, heartworm free with monthly prevention and worming up to date.
They are being rehomed because of a broken marriage which is very sad for them.
They are currently with Jenny in Leumeah
Many thanks to Debbi and Liz from Eastlakes who have generously donated $200 to help with the care of Goldie and Stitch – grateful woofs and hugs from them both x x x
DENVER (m) born 19/12/10
Denver(m) is the most mischievious of the three but has a huge personality. He loves to play with his cuddly toys and anything else that squeaks (including his brothers). Out of all three of them, Denver is the one who likes to play the most, and is always on the go. He loves chasing, running, hopping, jumping, falling, chasing… anything that has movement involved! Like with most puppies who are active, Denver requires more stimulation than his siblings, and he is showing he is quite intelligent already.
PHOEBE(f) renamed BELLE
27/3/11 Phoebe has been adopted by Emma from Toongabbie
with Belinda in Sutherland.
with Belinda in Sutherland.
RAVEN (f) Kelpie / Labrador ~31kg- born 2-3-09 approx
17/3/11 Raven is the sweetest girl, she has come out of her shell so much in the last week. The usual greeting in the mornings starts off with a wagging tail and as she gets happier her whole body turns into a big wiggling worm. She has plenty of manners and can sit, shake and walk beautifully on the lead. She is also very loyal so sticks to your side when she’s off the lead too! This beautiful girl is very affectionate and just wants to be around you as much as she can. Raven gets along with ANY dog and would be great in a home with another dog, she does not bark at all and does not have a mean bone in her body. Raven loves the water, and will take the opportunity to jump right in and have a quick paddle before we pull her out! (she is not allowed to be in the water yet due to her desexing stitches). Raven would be a perfect family dog, loyal and gentle but would be happy in virtually any home where she gets the love and attention that she deserves.
DELTA (f)Medium Cross Breed ~21kg, born 8/9/09 approx
27/3/11 Delta has has been adopted by Aileen at Leichhardt
17/3/11 Delta is a gorgeous puppy with lots of energy. She is a lovely red sable colour. Delta is very sensitive and knows exactly when she is in trouble, coming straight to you and rolling onto her back. She can sit already and is learning (with the added help from Raven) to walk on the lead. Delta is a smart little girl and is extremely food motivated so she has been quite easy to train, currently learning to lie down, shake and stay. She is good off the lead and will come when called, gets along with all dogs and also takes the opportunity to leap in the water (she is not allowed to be in the water yet due to her desexing stitches) before she gets pulled out! This excitable girl can also be quite calm and she is very trusting, turning to mush in your arms. Delta is very loving and adorable and would be perfect in any home where she gets lots of love and attention.= & medium sized.
Raven & Delta are with Adrienna at Nth Narrabeen.
RUFUS (m) born 30/10/09

She is getting good at walking on the lead, has learnt to sit and stay and will come when called, even at an off leash park. She’s a little camera shy at present and her photos don’t do her justice.
Bella is a sweet natured, friendly girl who is looking for a home she can call her own.
Bella is with Megan in Granville
LEO(m) & RIGBY(m) renamed BERNIE & BASIL

MACKA Cocker Spaniel/Golden Retriever born Mar 2005
20/3/11 Macka has been adopted by Shannon at Kingswood
What a personality, delightful Macka. Fully house trained, and some levels of obedience training (not that we are reinforcing his training). The minute he got out of the pound he was truly grateful and he has not let us out of his sight. Macka just longs for human contact. He is settling in extremely well, and now has his own lounge. Very very gentle boy. Does not bark, only at the door bell. Loves our other little dog. Very social at the dog park, and does not fuss or stress around other animals eg cats.
Loves swimming and walking and drives in the car.Active boy, although he is more than contented with one walk a day. He eats very well.
Macka will make a great addition to any family. He is already trained (lead, obedience, house), is desexed, registered, chipped and vaccinated.
Macka is with Anne at Dural.
KNOX (m) born 19/12/10
Knox, born 19/12/10 is like a combination of his brothers. He loves his cuddles but also loves to play. He likes to lick your hand to death but also enjoys roughhousing with other dogs (and me). He’ll either be asleep in your arms, or climbing on your shoulders, licking your ears. He is also quite loud when he wants to be and will never be afraid to tell you when he wants something. No food in his bowl? He’ll let you know. No fun toys to keep him entertained? You’ll know. With that in mind, he is very easy to care for and loves getting lots of attention.
Knox is with Darren in Matraville.
ARIA now MINNIE & NOVA now TASHA (f) born 21/12/10 approx
5/3/11 Nova has been adopted by Bronwyn at St Helens Park
7/2/11 These gorgeous girls are only 6 weeks old and appear to be German Shepherd blend. They will probably grow to be medium size with medium energy levels. They’ll require a reasonably active home and one that is capable of training them further, as they’ll need lead and house training (too young for that now). We have just taken them into care, where they’ll settle and learn good socialisation skills, both with dogs and people, so they can become happy, confident, well adjusted dogs. Both girls won’t be ready to go to their new homes until early March, but we are happy to take enquiries and you are welcome to apply for their adoption.
They are with Darren in Matraville.
POPPY (f) chocolate Torti born April ’08 approx
Poppy came to us as a very timid and skinny little cat. With time and patience she has put on weight and is now healthy and bouncing around the house. She took some time to feel comfortable in her new surroundings but now enjoys curling up on the bed, watching the world from her perch on the windowsill and playing with her cat toys. She is a gorgeous dark chocolate tortoiseshell and always greets me at the door when I come home. She is shy around children and other adults and would be best suited to a quiet home without children. She enjoys every opportunity to play on the safely enclosed balcony and will sit placidly and take in the world. Poppy is a gorgeous cat and just needs a loving owner to provide her with a safe environment where she can continue to come out of her shell.
Poppy has been tested for FIV/FeLV (Feline Aids and Feline Leukaemia) and has tested negative.
Poppy is with Jane in Narwee
POPPY was SPONSORED by Bill and Gillian from 1/8/10 for 12 months!
“Thank you for sponsoring me and helping with the costs of my care, whislt I am looking for my own forever home.
Love from Poppy & SPRA x x x “

All are very sweet and gentle cats, but considered special needs cats as they are very shy till they get to know you. They will need time and patience for you to win their trust, and are best suited to a quiet family with no young children or dogs.They are all litter trained and live indoors.
They have been in care with Michelle since rescued. She has fallen in love with them and found them very loving cats once they got over their shyness.
Dec’08 – Grateful thanks to Annette from Cronulla who donated some Whiskas tinned adult food for Muffy Sootie and Possum. mmm Purrs and kisses from Muffy, Possum and Sootie x x x
Another big thank you to Penny, Cris, Toby, Sparkle and Gemma for their very generous donaton of a box of Dine gourmet food. Toby, Sparkle and Gemma’s mum, Penny told us that they wouldn’t eat this gourmet food, and she didn’t want it to go to waste…..but we’re not sure we believe that story. This is our favourite food which we usually only get for treats! Yum yum, bubble gum! We think Toby, Gemma and sparkle’s mum and dad are just too generous, and wanted to give us something special for our Xmas stockings! Lots of hugs and kisses from Muffy, Possum and Sootie xoxoxo
A big thank you to Munchkin’s foster carers, Melissa & Troy, for a laser light pointer. – we have had lots of fun chasing it around with all the kittens.. hugs and purrs from Muffy, Possum and Sootie x x x

15/12/10 Kelly is 6 1/2 years young with a gorgeous white and cream short to medium coat. Kelly is an absolute delight to have, low to medium energy, people and dog friendly. She can be a little shy sometimes but doesn’t take long to warm up. Kelly is an angel to walk with on the lead, you wouldn’t know she was there, super light never pulls.

CHINO (m) Maltese blend born Oct’05-very affectionate & gentle
13/5/10 CHINO is a white Maltese blend He is microchipped, lifetime registered & desexed. .He is 4 1/2 years of age
Chino is a lovely, smoochy little man who loves cuddles and being with people. He gets on well with other dogs and is being house trained at present.
Beautiful Little Chino….. So small but so much love. He is a small and gentle boy. Desexed. Very, very kind and loving. He is really good with children and other pets. He loves to snuggle up and needs to know you are near by. Very affectionate and well behaved. We are working on toilet training, but he loves to be praised, so this will come too.
Chino is rather timid, and easily scared, he may have been mis-handled before being abandoned, therefore he needs lots of love and patience. Chino is a pure delight, and our family will miss him terribly when he goes forward to his next adventure.
COMET (m) born 7/11/10 approx
8/2/11 “Comet is a very handsome and well mannered pup, now around 14 weeks old. His unique look gets him lots of attention and his independent personality has people laughing all the time. He is a good listener when he’s doing something he’s not supposed to be doing but, most of the time, Comet will do what Comet wants. However, that is by no means a bad thing, as Comet is incredibly well behaved. Most of the time, he will lay on one of his many blankets, and watch the world go by. In fact, wherever you put a blanket, he won’t be far behind.
Comet is extremely dog friendly and loves to have canine companions, though he also like his “quiet time” when he’s ready for his naps. He’s still being leash-trained but is progressing well, though I have to let him believe that he’s taking me for a walk most times. In the two months since Comet has been with me, he’s grown quite a bit (he’s all legs!), and he makes me laugh every day. He’s so full of personality and everyone who meets him falls in love with him completely.
Comet will be a medium sized dog but, considering how big I think he’ll be, he does not have high energy levels. Most of the time he likes to chill out and just let the world pass him by (or collect his toys and put them under his blanket), where he tries to build a fort. He loves meeting new people and dogs and is perfect off-leash already (and he loves the water too). This little pup will suit anyone who’s looking for a truly unique dog.”
Comet is with Darren in Matraville
SUKIE (f) born 4/6/10 approx – loves tummy tickles
12/2/11 Sukie is being adopted by Anita her foster carer
Rescued 4/12/10 at 6 months old Sukie is a Great Dane blend (possibly Kelpie). Sukie is a sweet girl and a fast learner. She is great on the lead, good with other dogs, loves getting treats and rolling on her back to get tummy tickles. She would be a great family dog and would love to be in a family with another dog that she can run around play with.. Sukie will probably grow to a smaller than normal Great Dane size.
Sukie is with Adrienna in Nth Narrabeen
ARAMIS (m) Renamed MONTY born 19/3/10 approx – loves cuddles
Aramis is a Wolfhound blend who is approx 10 mths old. He’s extremely sweet natured (as are all Wolfhounds), isn’t fazed by much, is obedient, great with other dogs and loves cuddles. He knows how to sit on command and as we have just taken him into care, will be making sure he’s lead trained and house trained. As he’s now mostly fully grown, he is a large size dog, but not huge, and will require a moderate level of exercise. Wolfhounds are very placid dogs with medium energy levels . Centuries ago, Wolfhounds stayed in the castle’s to protect the children and were often seen in the family portraits. Only kings and noblemen were allowed to own such a great breed of dog. If you are looking for a loyal, sweet, loving dog, then Aramis is your boy.
Aramis is with Kate at Strathfield

Sylvester (m) born Aug’05 – Mr Personality
Sylvester is being adopted by Nicky, his foster carer.
Sylvester is a hugely affectionate and very sociable boy who loves nothing better than getting a big cuddle – and to show you how much he loves you, he’ll put his arms around your neck and give you cat-kisses back! He is very much involved in family-life – in fact, Sylvester likes to know exactly what everyone is up to, and he makes it his business to come and check on where you are. He gets on well with other cats, is tolerant of dogs (provided they leave him alone) and is also extremely patient with our foster-carer’s baby…no aggression shown even when his ears or tail are being pulled very hard! As Sylvester is so sociable, he would be better suited to a home where he is not on his own for long periods. As we said before, as he loves giving and receiving a fuss, he’d make an ideal family indoor/outdoor cat.
PEPSI (f) & STARR (f) born 10/11/10 approx
23/12/10 Pepsi has only been with us for less than a day but already we’re starting to figure her out. She’s definitely the bossier of the two pups, but she loves hugs and kisses. She’s very playful and has already taken to her rope… which she lets her sister play with too.
Pepsi looks like she is carrying the confidence of five dogs and isn’t afraid of much… except for high pitched whistling, which doesn’t go too well when you’re trying to grab her attention for photo shots! She will be learning how to walk on a lead in a couple of weeks, as well as being housetrained, and socialised. She’s a very friendly pup with a playful personality.26/1/11 Starr has been adopted by Laura from Wentworthville
Starr will no doubt love you for life if you let her be your lap dog, as she loves to be near people and feel safe. For two young pups that were abandoned, she is doing extremely well, and is a great listener. She will be learning how to walk on a lead in a couple of weeks, as well as being housetrained, and socialised. She’s a very friendly pup with a playful personality..

SQUID (m) Foxy blend, a gorgeous little boy
2/11/10 SQUID is white & tan fox terrier blend pup & is just 4 months of age. He is a gorgeous natured little man…full of life and ready to bring lots of love and happiness into your life.
Darren writes – Squid gets nicknamed Tailspin or Roflcopter because his tail is always wagging. Whether you’re sitting calmly or playing hard, his tail is always spinning happily. He’s very excitable and loves to play. He’s big on cuddles but, as a puppy, is still being taught not to nip. So far it seems he is house-trained. He responds well to treats and seems to be a very quick learner. He already knows how to sit and roll-over, and I’m sure will easily pick up anything else he’s taught. His favourite place in the house is the kitchen and his favourite word is “snack.” A beautiful, small dog, with a big personality. He loved playing with Titan who has just been adopted
Squid is with Darren in Matraville

Fox will be starting lead training soon and has basic manners already.
Fox is with Barbara in Kentlyn.
