Hi everyone, my name is Stormy
Meet Stormy – This gorgeous boy is on a lookout for his new forever home. If you’re looking for a love bug who has been nicknamed ‘The Purr Machine’ then he could be the one for you!
He has spent some time in foster care and is an absolute smooch who loves cuddles, belly tickles, playing with ping pong balls & having fun with cardboard boxes.
His ideal home would be a quiet home with a stable routine, as he does have a history of urinary blockage which can be brought on with stress. Not to worry it is easy to manage and the lovely staff can chat to you further about this! He would prefer a home with no young kids or other animals.
If you would like to meet this handsome fella please pop in an application – meet and greets are by appointments only.
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
