Love is in the Air!

Finding homes for adult cats can be tough! Especially with kitten season just around the corner! Don’t get us wrong, we obviously love kittens, but we have just as much love for their more mature counterparts!

Adult cats often get overlooked for adoption which blows our minds because they’re such amazing companions, and could be a more purrrfect match for your family than a cheeky kitten is!

Don’t believe us? Here is some reasons why adopting an adult cat is the best!

1. Fully developed personality-what you see is what you get, so a good match is easy to make!
2. Destructive kitten days are over, so they’ll have more time to spend loving you!
3. Older cats still make strong bonds with their family!
4. Kittens aren’t kittens forever!

GAR is a not for profit organisation that heavily relies on donations. We don’t have any paid workers, everyone is a volunteer! Every cent raised goes towards saving animals in need!

You can now donate using these simple steps:
– send an SMS that says GAR to 0437371371
– receive a reply with a link
– fill in your details and donate

Thank you for supporting GAR!

LUCY ~ 7 MTH OLD DSH ~ $200

Hi, my name’s Lucy. I’m shy and timid at first but once I’ve got to know you I’m the biggest sweetheart.

I LOVE to play with my mouse toy and sleep in the sun. I also love scratches and rubs from my foster Mum as well as having naps on her knee, but being picked up and cuddled isn’t my favourite thing to do… I prefer to decide when we cuddle!

I’m very well behaved, I always know where to go to the toilet and am respectful of furniture and know not to jump on things I’m not supposed to.

I’ve been to visit other cats, and after several weekends have begun playing with them. I’ve not met any dogs yet, or little children but loud noises still scare me so would take a while to get used to.

I show so much love to my foster mum, I follow her to the toilet and love rubbing noses. I would love to find my forever home.

Lucy is Desexed, microchipped and up to date with vaccinations and flea and worming treatments.
