A little bit about me
I was found wandering alone on the road by SPCA Auckland. I didn't care for the solo life, so I am looking for someone to make me a part of their family
What's special about meI am a neat little pup who is looking for a confident and reliable leader to take me home. I am only young so I will need someone to care of me for part of the day. I will need a home with secure fencing as being an adventurous boy I will find little gaps to get through. I will be fine with calm sensible children and I don't mind if you already have a dog or a confident cat, you will just need to introduce us properly. Patience is essential as I'm still learning, but luckily cute is my middle name! If you have secure fencing and a big heart, please ask one of the staff if we can meet!
1. Can you care for a companion animal for their whole life?
2. Can you afford to care for the pet you are considering adopting?
These may include the following:
- Quality food and treats
- Worm and flea treatments
- Items such as leashes, toys, collars, housing, bedding, kennel, crates, enclosures
- Annual health check and vaccinations
- Veterinary visits and treatments due to illness or accidents, and preventative care
- Fees for boarding or home care for your animal if you need to go away
- Doggy Day care fees if you have to be away from your dog for long periods
- Training classes for puppies and dogs
- Annual registration fees for dogs (this is a legal requirement)
- Grooming expenses
- $670 on their cat
- $1200 on their dog (larger dogs can be more expensive)
- $785 on their horse
- $310 on their rabbit
However, depending on an animal’s individual needs these costs could be significantly higher.
3. Are you able to care for the pet you are considering adopting?
4. Is your home suitable for the animal you are considering adopting?
5. Will a pet fit into your lifestyle?
- You should not adopt a companion animal unless you are:
- prepared to walk your dog every day (if you are thinking of adopting a dog)
- able to give your animal the basic training they need
- able to arrange suitable care for your animal when you are away
Contact your local SPCA centre if you have any queries regarding animal ownership.
