Hi everyone, my name is Keela
|Keela is a wonderful senior dog with a heart full of love to give. Despite her age, she is a vibrant and affectionate companion who enjoys the company of humans and other dogs.
She’s looking for a forever home where she can enjoy her golden years in comfort and happiness. Keela is showing some normal signs of her age, she has Osteoarthritis and a mild seasonal allergy. Keela is ready to share her love and loyalty with a family who will cherish her for the rest of her days.
She would thrive in a quieter home setting where she can enjoy both peace and quiet as well as cuddles with the family. Keela can make an excellent addition to your furry family, especially if you already have a calm and well-socialized older dog. Her friendly and accommodating nature makes her a great companion for other dogs.
If you believe you can provide Keela with the loving forever home she deserves, fill out an expression of interest form.
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
