Hi everyone, my name is Ally & Susie
These girls are not only sisters but the bestest of friends!
Ally & Susie came to us from a home that was a little overcrowded with felines. Upon arrival they were separated from each other for a short time and both became very depressed. Once re-united they instantly curled up together and slept tightly cuddled into each other’s arms. It became very clear to us that these girls need to be in each other’s lives as they bring so much comfort and love to one-another.
Although both girls are a little shy initially we are sure they will blossom once in a quiet home with someone that can shower them with lots of love. Ally loves pats and will stomp her little paws around to show you just how happy she is while Susie likes chin tickles and licking treats off your hands when she’s feeling peckish.
If you are interested in meeting this gorgeous duo, please fill in an expression of interest or come and meet them at our Campbellfield Adoption Centre.
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
