Happy Paws Haven Update

Cats for adoption this week:

We get all cats vet checked prior to adoption to make sure that we comply to the standards required by any pet shop. We have adopted out well over 1200 cats over the last 12 years and only a very small percentage having developed any illness as a result of the change in environment but now we are being extremely careful. All our animals are microchipped, immunised and desexed as soon as possible after they arrive. Our Rehoming number is 251000043


Carlos is a member of the C-team who were rescued in Maclean by a foster carer over a number of days at the end of October 2016, Mum, named Cara by the foster carer’s son was found in a garage as the owner was packing to move out. She had a small dog and she worried whether he might have a go at Cara and her family of young kittens. They stayed in care until they were able to be desexed, immunised and chipped. Carter is a friendly affectionate young male when he chooses to be, demanding of strokes and attention at the others expense. He is a lovely gentle young cat. He has been immunised, desexed and micro-chipped. 991003000002541



Miss Gidgi arrived after her owner could not keep her (as his girlfriend is allergic to cats) so we agreed to take her. She is so friendly, affectionate, loves cuddles and is fine with other cats. She likes living indoors, but as she is a good mouser, needs a little time outside after she has gotten to know you. In this cold weather she loves to sit on window ledge to watch the world go by. She has been desexed immunised and chipped and is ready for her special new home. 900079000630587




Suraya, a beautiful smoke tabby came in a box with tiny brand new just born kittens who have grown into beautiful young cats and have all found homes. She can be very affectionate one minute, cranky the next and stand-offish the next. She does love cuddles and to be groomed. She prefers not to share with other cats. She is fine with dogs will even come up for a smooch when no-one is looking. She is like all our cats desexed micro-chipped and immunisations 981000300461557

Romeo came with Jesse as they are great mates. An unlikely couple, although Jesse is still here, we decided to see what he is like with some other friends and found that he likes his girls on the bigger side. He tolerates the small girls, but his latest pen mate is a Roti. Romeo is good with other dogs generally, can be fussy, and really loves people. He is a gorgeous dog who needs a strong owner. He is a beautiful SharPei with a wonderful loving personality, he is desexed immunised micro-chipped and regularly treated for parasites. 900164000514888




Hi my name is Tyson and I love to play ball. I will bring it to your feet and I will sometimes let you throw it for me and sometimes I will tease you by dropping the ball and as you pick it up I will beat you to it. It is only a game. I love it when you have a ball too! You throw it so I drop mine and chase you. I bring it back and find that you have picked up my ball and the game goes on. I am looking for an active family home where someone will play with me. I am suitable only for adults and older children. I need to come in at night and have a dark room to sleep in. I get very anxious at night if left outside. I love being near my family. I hope someone will love me forever as I am a very loyal and loving Dutch Shepherd. 953010000217938



Jesse is a dog that can is best go to a one dog home. She is mainly ok with dogs her size or bigger who can stand up to her. She is fine around people, very loving and demanding as all shepherds can be. She is highly intelligent loves to go for a swim but needs to be kept away from dogs smaller than her. She would be an excellent companion for someone a home all the time, especially out on a property. She is a German Shepherd cross Belgian Shepherd Malinois. She has been micro-chipped, immunised and desexed, and is waiting for her new home. She is obedient but needs to continue to be dog to dog socialised. 982000153713001
