Our mission is to rescue healthy, treatable pets from pounds and shelters in southern NSW & ACT and rehome them with adoptive families.
We are based in Wagga Wagga and Canberra.
Use trainers who understand that animal behaviour is a science - it is predictable and behaviours can be learned and unlearned using reliable positive teaching methods. If your trainer advocates using punishment and dominance - get your dog outta there!
Pregnant rescue kitty Indigo went into labour this morning! She gave birth to five kittens, but then had complications. She seemed to think she was finished. But Indigo's carer was sure that she could feel at least one more kitten. It was decided that Indigo needed to go to the vet. She was given oxytoxin to induce the contractions, and has given birth to a sixth kitten and there is still a seventh kitten to come. It looks like the seventh kitten is still in with a chance! Well done to the carer who was diligent in caring for Indigo and keeping such a close eye on her during the birth. All fingers (and paws & claws!) are crossed that number seven comes through and Indigo and her babies can go home and be cared for by their doting carer!
The vet has re-scanned Indigo since this post. There are only 6 kittens. She's all done. Yay Indigo! Very well done, girl. And thank you very much to the staff at Lake Road Vet who have helped Indigo to deliver her final kitten.
One week on from being in a cage at an adoption day and Miss Daisy, now called Gemma is in her new home. Doesn't she look very content? Gemma, shown here with her new big sister, has the honour of being known as number 1000. She was the 1000th animal to come into our rescue and will always be very special to us. Thank you to her new family for choosing to adopt her.
Just a few of the 12 pets we collected on Monday from a rural pound. Not pictured but also rescued were a little male foxy, a senior Beagle named Fred, and 4 older kittens.
Dusty and Cody would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped us rescue over 1000 animals in the four years we have been running. The boys were in a cage donated by Rescue Resource, their food, kitty litter and bedding were also supplied by them. Their vet care is provided by our wonderful vets Lake Road Vet. We would also like to thank all our wonderful donors who leave food, toys, etc in the two donation bins we have at Foodworks Lake Albert and Wollundry Fruit Barn and Pet World.
If you can commit to a furry companion for the next 15 to 20 years, why not organise a meet and greet and find your perfect feline match. Consider a juvenile cat, a mama cat, an older cat or a shy cat. They'll love you even more for opening your home to them when they've been passed over too many times as they are no longer a small kitten. Please spread the word.
