Hi everyone, my name is Baby Rocco

Could you be Baby Rocco’s new best friend?

This sweetheart is looking for his forever home and someone to shower him in love. He absolutely adores people and greets everyone with a wagging tag, big smile and big spring in his step.

True to his age and breed, he’s energetic and loves to play! But he also enjoys nothing more than snuggling up after a good play session.

He has previously been treated for some hair loss which is now healing up and his hair & skin is looking soft and shiny!

Baby Rocco would love someone that is prepared to do some training to help him reach his full potential and who can provide lots of love and fun. If this sounds like you, please fill out the expression of interest form and the kennels team will be in touch.

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
