Meet our lovable Pets of the Week looking for forever homes!

Charlie and Addy are this week’s friendly Pets of the Week! These gorgeous animals are waiting to find their perfect match. Think that could, be you? Read more about them below.

Dog of the Week: Charlie

Meet Charlie!

Charlie is ready to take on the next Australian Open with her love of tennis balls!

This little superstar is young, fit and active. She is looking for a home where she can run, jump and chase tennis balls as much as possible!

Once she gets comfy with you, this girl is a sweetie. She loves a good scratch and would benefit from a family that has the time to train her to settle down and enjoy relaxing.

Charlie is very excited to learn everything she can! She would really love to go on lots of walks to feel more comfortable on her lead, do some basic training so she can follow all the rules and learn how to fit into her new fun life with her forever family.

Charlie is a little attention hog and would much prefer to be an only dog so she can ensure nobody is stealing her beloved tennis ball!


Addy – a princess who knows just how pretty she is.

Cats of the week: Addy

Addy is a 6-year-old tortoiseshell kitty looking for a place in the sun to curl up all day long. When she’s feeling it, she loves a cuddle and chin scratch.

Addy is a bit of a princess and would be best suited to a home without young kids where she is the one and only pet. Addy believes she deserves all the attention, and we are starting to think she’s right!

This beautiful girl is looking for a home with lots of warm spots for her to curl up in and someone who thinks she is just as beautiful as we do.

There are so many perks to adopting a cat like Addy. As a 6-year-old kitty, she’s already past her wicked teen phase and ready to relax. Addy would make the perfect addition to a family looking to adopt a no-stress pet that has lots of love to offer.

Paw note: Last week’s cat of the week Kit the cat was adopted! Charlie Brown is still looking for his pawfect match.
