Zaffy and Bubbles

Our rescue pets Zaffy the dog and Bubbles the cat- Zaffy was born at the old Gosford pound and mum died when she was 5 days old – she was hand raised by a rescue group and we adopted her at 6 weeks. Bubbles was from a litter we rescued from Renbury farm in 2011- he settled in so well into our family we decided to keep him – as you can see they are happy together.

Alistair

Kerryn Swan adopted Alistair (now known as Miles). He was four or five months old when adopted and was rescued from under a shed with his brother, Banksy and sister. They were very scared and wouldn’t let anyone go near them.
“As soon as I saw the photo of the tiny black kitten with the huge golden eyes I knew I had to meet him. When we walked into Lauren’s house and saw him, his first response was to hiss at me and mine was that I wanted to keep him forever.

This little man came with his understandable trust issues and it took us a few days to help him understand that he was safe with us. In just over a month he has gone from hiding behind our furniture to a fluffy little ball of fun and energy with the cheekiest and affectionate personality. His purr is bigger than he is and it never stops.

Adopting a pet is one of the most heart warming things you can do. Miles is no exception and Claws n Paws made it such a simple and easy thing to do.”

Ruby/Puss

“We discovered Claws ʻNʼ Paws Rescue while looking for a Kitten. We had a few factors to take into account when getting another pet, namely an overexcited 4 year old daughter and an equally overexcited 4 year old groodle!

The beautiful boy we called about had already been homed but the women we spoke to from the group were wonderful and after explaining what we were looking for in a new pet and the type of family environment they would be coming into, we were matched up with “Ruby” an amazingly sweet 8 week old kitten. We fell in love with her as soon as we saw her and knew she was our new family addition.

One of the stand out things we discovered upon bring her home was how comfortable she was with people and the new environment. It was clear from the get go, that the foster carers who hand raised her had gone above and beyond to ensure she was confident, happy, healthy and perfectly cared for. This made all the difference in the introduction of a new animal into the house along with her wonderful temperament.

Itʼs now a few months down the track and our daughter went through many names but has stuck with Puss. Puss and Rasta (the other overexcited 4 y.o.) are slowly finding their balance and love to chase each other round the house, much to the delight of our daughter, who has also found a new best friend of the feline kind. Itʼs been a great success overall and we are truly grateful to Claws ʻnʼ Paws for all their assistance in bringing Puss to her forever home.”

Penny

This dog Zenith was in foster care for 6 months with us – she was so affectionate and smart BUT whenever anyone came to meet her she got SO excited that she scared them off.

She was finally adopted by a lovely couple in Sydney where she enjoys beach walks, going to work with her new parents and obviously chilling on the lounge. We rescued Zenith from Renbury farm – she was just lucky we were there on the day she was due to be euthanased and we grabbed her! Her new name is Penny and is very much loved.

“I thought you might like an update on how Penny (Zenith) is going. She has settled in really well, and we both absolutely adore her, we couldn’t have asked for a more sweet, loving dog. She gets spoiled rotten with about a thousand toys to play with, lots of walks and lots of treats. We have continued with her natural diet and she seems to like it. She is a great addition to the household and she is very well behaved and such a quick learner and eager to please! I have attached a photo of her at our club treasure hunt day. She had a great time on the beach!”

Claws n Paws Update

Claws n Paws has had a busy couple of months in the cat department – we have been rescuing on average 8 kittens and cats a week and thanks to super foster carers Lauren and Lorena we are re-homing them just as quickly.

We have also been lucky enough to rescue 6 pointer x pups – 4 are still available for purchase and a few adult dogs as well.

We desperately need carers that are happy to take on adult cats and adult dogs – they always take a bit longer to rehome but they are so easy to look after and they are the ones that need rescuing more than anything.

Health wise we have had quite a lot of vet visits with kitty diarrhea – there seems to be a bug going around that is affecting the tiny ones. Often we get kittens that are barely 4 weeks old that have been taken off mum too early – they have very weak immune systems and they don’t always pull through – we unfortunately have lost a few kittens in the last few weeks (and a few broken carers hearts) to this gastro bug despite great veterinary care. Kittens tend to be difficult health wise in the early weeks without their mummas.

Lauren and Lorena has both kindly rescued mums with kittens and these lovely mums will often feed other kittens as well as their own which makes a big difference health wise. We have mainly been rescuing from Wyong pound and Hawkesbury pounds of late – they are keeping us well stocked with cats and kittens.

We have rescued a few dogs from Gosford Dog Paws which is the old Gosford Pound – they run a very clean facility and offer great animal care. I am hoping as the weather cools there will be less kittens and pups in the pounds and we can focus on rescuing from lovely juveniles and adults. A big thank you to our volunteer drivers Denise and Jasmin who have been doing pound pick ups and vet visits.

Also thanks to Kath from A Dash of Lime Design for our very popular new logo and Nicole from Picasso Media for the wonderful
new website.

We have also had quite a few new foster carers come on board which is fantastic – the more the merrier!
