Hi everyone, my name is Hilda & Zelda

Hilda and Zelda are affectionate and playful young cats. They were overlooked as kittens and have been in between the shelter and foster homes for about a year. They are the most lovely houseguests and their foster family has loved having them around. These two are so deserving of love and a forever family.

Hilda is the star of the shelter and loves to steal the spotlight. She is small, quirky and fast, and loves to snuggle up with you in a blanket or dressing gown. Zelda is a stunning, gentle and confident darling. Her love language is giving head boops, kisses and rolling about your feet.

Tilly eats wet food only (regular wet food) as dry food upsets her tummy. These two are best suited to a house with older children and would be ok with a friendly cat or dog.

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
