Hi everyone, my name is Max
Marvelous Max here, nice to meet you! I’m a senior gentleman who is looking for a quiet loving home to retire in.
I am super affectionate and love to be the centre of attention and be involved in what’s going on. I’m seeking a home where my humans are home a lot to keep me company.
Whilst getting my health check at Lort Smith, the veterinary team discovered that I have a condition called hyperthyroidism, this will need to be managed with medication for life. The staff will be able to give you more details about this!
I enjoy getting pats and when I’m happy I purr like a motor!
I would be best suited to an indoor only home with no other animals and no young children please. I will be foster to adopt whilst I am settling into my new forever home.
Would you consider taking me in and loving me for my twilight years? If you are interested in knowing more about me, please 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
