All Cats Deserve a home

Be a Foster Family


Once the On-line Adoption Forms are received we aim to compile a short list of the applicants that we feel are most suited to each pet .. this can sometimes take 7-10 days.

Only short listed applicants will be contacted to discuss their application further.

We aim to rehome an animal for life so we work very hard to ensure that we make a perfect match between the pet and the potential new owner.

We use many years of experience and strict adoption criteria to make this happen.

By supplying your Vets details you are giving 4Paws Animal Rescue authorisation to speak to your treating Vet Clinic regarding your past or present pets history.

I need a Foster Carer
Con and Pepper with Marilyn

Con and Pepper
We are Purebred

CON is a 1 year old tan male and PEPPER s a 2 year old black female .. they are 2 adorable young Chihuahuas .. they each weigh approximately 3 kilograms.

TCon and Pepper bond quickly with people after a little hesitancy to begin with and both love children .. as Con and Pepper are very tiny .. if children are involved they would be best suited to a home with children of at least school age.

Fully secure fencing with no gaps is a must .. they are not diggers and are very good watch dogs .. they were surrendered together and absolutely love each other so we are looking for a home where they can be together.

Con and Pepper are not at all aggressive but are very nervous around other dogs especially big dogs .. as they love human company .. they need someone who is home for at least part of the day.

But they can be easily left alone for a few hours as they keep each other company .. Con and Pepper do get up to mischief .. so I keep them in a contained area or a pen when I am not at home.

Pepper and Con

They are inside/outside dogs and are quite happy to sleep in their pen or a small room at night .. Con and Pepper have completed their toilet training and will now sit on command and come when called.

Con and Pepper will need continued obedience training but learn very quickly as they respond well to rewards .. they are not fussy eaters .. I feed them mainly dry food with a bit of chicken or high quality wet food.

Con is the more highly strung .. he is very active and just loves his toys and the game of fetch .. they both walk well on leads and look forward to daily walks.

They travel happily in a car in a cat cage .. if these two little cuties have caught your eye .. please apply online to 4 Paws.

I need a Foster Carer


Jess is a cuddly male Mini Foxie 9 years of age .. he has came into 4 Paws care in the past week .. another shelter was unable to re-home or manage a possible medical condition .. at present he is under veterinary review and this may take a little time to definitively define.

Jess has won the hearts of all that has crossed his path .. all the staff at Nicklin Way Vet rave about how adorable he is .. unfortunately his photographs depicts how nervous he is around his new surroundings .. however his pictures do not show how affectionate and gorgeous he is.

He is an inside dog to be part of the family unit .. he is a small dog with short hair .. everyday grooming needs are next to nil .. Jess would require good boundary fencing to keep him safe during outside time.

Jess would love a bed beside yours at night or the very least a bed inside the home in another room .. 4 Paws are seeking applications for Jess that are able to keep him until we know if or what may be medically wrong with him.

Whilst it is noted he is under medical review we do not believe it is too serious .. it could mean lifelong medication and vet visits as required.

A successful applicant would be willing to keep him for as long as it takes to determine his outcome medically and or when he is adopted .. if this is determined by 4 Paws as a possibility or perhaps he may stay with you forever.

A person or couple with no children that are home a lot and or retired would be best suited for him .. you must have the ability to transport him to the Nicklin Way Vet Warana as required.

If you believe you can fill the required list that is needed for Jess please apply online to further the application.

About Luka and Lani

LUKA is male and weighs 2.7 kilogram and LANI is female and weighs 3.3 kilogram Chihuahuas.

Luka and Lani are both 3 years of age and are Brother and Sister .. they have lived their whole lives together.

Whilst they are mirror image in looks they both have their own individual characters .. Luka is the quieter of the two .. Lani has quite an outgoing personality.

They BOTH can be a bit bossy and jealous at times so we would rather find a home with no other dogs so Luka and Lani do not have to share your affection.

They do get along with other dogs and older children however it is unknown how Luka and Lani feel about cats.

Luka will happily sit in your lap ALL DAY .. Lani is happy to do so as well however she also likes to get around the house and investigate her surroundings.

Luka does not like to jump up or down from the couch so he has to be given assistance when required .. Luka and Lani love to sleep with you and share the bed under your covers.

Neither particularly like water however bathing has not been a drama .. both eat well .. Luka loves chicken and mince .. Lani prefers her hard food.

Luka is very quiet and rarely barks .. however Lani is more vocal especially when left at home whilst you are out.

Luka and Lani

Their Foster Carer is working very hard on this and Lani is learning to be quieter .. Luka and Lani like to spend time outdoors for play and some sun.

Luka is good with his toileting and will go on the grass on command .. Lani is still learning with her Foster Carer and with patience and commitment this is something that should continue to improve once she is settled into her new home.

4 Paws is looking for a home where Luka and Lani can live TOGETHER FOREVER .. due to their tiny size your fencing must be very secure with no small gaps .. we also need to know that you have permission from Council to keep 2 dogs.

JASPER is a tiny 5 years old male Pomeranian weighting approx: 2.6 kilograms.

He is a teeny little Prince .. but do not be fooled by his stature.

Jasper has a huge personality with many little quirks that make him very special.

He loves cuddles but he also likes quiet time.

Jasper will often take himself into a quiet corner and watch the household activities from afar.

He is not shy .. Jasper just has an independent spirit although saying this he would be best suited to a home where he is not left alone for long periods of time.

Jasper can be a little unsure of strangers and will bark at people that he does not know but soon warms to them after a pat.
Jasper is so tiny .. a home without small children who would be tempted to pick him up would be preferred.

He is a very good boy .. he comes when called and knows to sit before he gets his dinner .. he is house trained too.

Jasper eats his dinner of biscuits with very good manners and he also enjoys vegetables as a treat .. he likes to spend time in the garden sniffing and pottering around.

Jasper does not really like to walk on lead though so playtime in the garden or in an off leash dog park is needed rather than a long walk.

He does like to play with a squeaky ball .. Jasper is an indoor dog and he likes the company of other dogs.

Jasper has a beautiful double coat .. like all Pomeranians he requires regular combing to ensure that his fur does not become matted .. he enjoys being groomed so this should be part of his routine.

Studio Republic

Cheeky Carmello

Hi this is CARMELLO .. he is a SERIOUSLY CUTE 12 month old male Chihuahua Mix .. he was rescued from death row at the pound.

Carmello required surgery for a luxating patella (floating kneecap) on his right hind led .. the surgery is complete and Carmello has made a fantastic recovery.

He is still very much a puppy and wants to play all day long .. except for when he is eating .. sleeping and smooching.

Carmello loves other dogs .. particularly if they want to play .. he is a mostly an indoors dog though Carmello walks well on a lead and enjoys play in the yard.

He is small and only weighs approx: 3 kilograms .. so Carmello would definitely only be suited to a family with older children .. Carmello has the most amazing amount of love to give and his puppy antics are hilarious.
