Recent adoption success stories:
Every day we hear from adoptees of former residents who cannot stop talking about the positives of adoption.
Here is a sample:
“It is amazing how much joy and happiness they have bought to our lives. It’s just wonderful to have these little balls of fur that love us and depend on us. They are the best decision we’ve ever made and certainly worth the wait!”- Rebecca, from Melbourne adopted kittens Slinky Malinky and Miss Sassafras from the Echuca Shelter earlier this year.
“We feel that these animals deserve a second chance and to be loved just as much as any other animals. They often have exciting and interesting pasts, which makes for a better personality too!” – Bonnie and Mark relocated to London with her adopted cat Possum and existing cat Mungo.
“I remember walking through the aisles with the girls who were five and six at the time…It was love at first sight!…We recognised this notable milestone (birthday) with a cupcake, candle, some balloons and a party hat. Shadow was a little puzzled by the balloons, though did go back for a nibble on the cake, when our backs were turned!’’ Melissa from Melbourne and owner of former resident and milestone birthday boy, Shadow who recently turned 18 and was adopted way back in 1994.
“My partner and I were looking for a cat and we decided to adopt from The Lost Dogs’ Home. We admittedly didn’t have the energy to take on a kitten, so we decided to give a loving and caring home to a mature cat that was at least three-years-old. Above all else, we felt it would be rewarding to give a grown cat a second chance, especially considering kittens are more popular among people looking for a cat.”- Michael Rochman and his partner, who are the very proud owners of a stunning mature ginger feline they called Millie.
