Hi everyone, my name is Roxy

Hi there,

I’m a gentle, sweet lady looking for a quiet, indoor, calm, loving home with plenty of things to do, lots of enrichment, a window to look out and observe nature. I may appear timid initially but once I trust you I really come out of my shell. I simply adore pats and belly rubs, I love to snuggle on the couch and sleep on your bed. When I first arrived at Lort Smith it was discovered I had an ectopic pregnancy and required surgery straight away. Following that I had a major dental where all of my teeth accept my 4 canines were removed, now my mouth has never felt better. I also have low grade kidney issues so as you can see I need to be with a family who will nurture me and make sure my regular vet exams are kept up. Please do an online expression of interest to arrange a meeting, I promise you’ll love me!

Make sure to check out my video of me being silly with catnip!


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
