Carson 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 very young kittens. The litter has unusual markings almost as they have some Turkish Van in them; they are also slender like an oriental. They are affectionate and love being stroked but not so keen about being carried around. They are desexed, immunised, regularly treated for parasites and chipped. They are now ready for their new homes. 991003000002507
Tara is a funny girl in a peculiar way, she has a big heart but like all cats can be cantankerous at the best of times, just when you want her to be loving she will turn her back and walk away or decide to have a spack. She was found at Yamba with nowhere to go and very pregnant! She did a wonderful job bring up all these babies. She loves being stroked and groomed but dislikes being picked up so only tolerates it for a short period and soon wants to be put down again so she can do her own thing. She is beautiful look at. She is also a good mouser as she often watches them at dusk and dawn ready to pounce. She has been desexed immunised and chipped and is ready for her special new home. 943094322007334

He loves to run and play he is not sure about cats whether bark at them or not. He is a lovely friendly affectionate playful young man. We think he has some red cattle dog in him going by his markings. He is nearly as tall as a greyhound so we are not sure what else he is maybe it is a huntaway or some sort of hound but who knows.

Gordie and Gok came together and they are great mates although they do not need to be rehomed together. He is a very loving playful young man with a lovely personality. Great with people and with kids. He seems to get on with everyone. He needs some more training due to his exuberance, we are teaching him not to jump up as soon as he sees you. He medium to small, just a little taller than an English staffy but not as tall as cattle dog, he may have some Bull terrier in him as well. Just a loving natured young man. 991003000593880
