SAVING CATS LIVES
Never believe that a few caring people
cannot change the fate of many animals…
Because it can and has happened!
It is so inspiring to see Blacktown Animal Holding Facility
working together with rescue groups to save as many
abandoned animals as they can but it’s been particularly
bad these last few weeks. Too many cats and kittens. Not
enough homes. Not enough foster carers. The list for
euthanasia when it came through was a long one ranging
from a very scared pair of surrendered cats to young
adults and even small kittens. 60 cats in the pound were
on death row, with 25 due for euthanasia on Monday.
To save as many as possible and with the pound’s full
support an urgent plea was put out by RescueCatProject
and with only until Monday at 4.30pm to do it. All through
that terrible weekend cat lovers pledged donations to help
with the cost of adopting the desperate cats.
Slowly one, two, three, then five were safe. Messages of
support came from far and wide but there were just too
many, too, too many. It seemed that in the end there
would be no happy endings for most of the abandoned
pets. It was hard not to feel ashamed for the irresponsible
owners who had dumped or surrendered their unwanted
pets to their unknown fate. Or had simply not desexed
their cat and got rid of the consequences.
These cats and kittens had become well known to our Michelle from DoggieRescue picking up the

Right from the start Kinks seemed to
understand that he was being helped
and he never once complained about
being picked up to be taken outside
or being given medication or having
his bandages checked. He just went
with the flow. A few weeks later he
was diagnosed with Cushings
disease and was put on medication to
manage the condition.
In 2010 he was briefly adopted, but
was returned to DR after a week as
he showed a propensity for chasing
the family chickens. When Doggie

being returned to the shelter, we were
delighted to take him back and he

in chocolate are theobromine and caffeine, and the level of toxicity

with a timid dog or a puppy, rowdy with a big Staffy, chilled
with an old dog. My owners are so proud of me.
If I could wish fleas on someone it would be - my former
owners for not picking me up from the pound when I was a
puppy. C'mon man! I was micro chipped!
My nickname is – Djangawang, Djang or Little Dog
If I impersonated a movie star I’d be - Michael J Fox
My yappiest moments are - when my owners ask "what's
that?" I run to the door and bark big and tough, even though
I'm small. Then I get lots of cuddles for protecting the house.
When I heard I was to star in DR magazine I – groomed
myself a bit and then ran back out into the yard. Ha! Ha! Ha!
But my family seemed pretty excited!
The food that makes me drool is – chicken! Or bacon!
Oooh...cheese!! No, no…. leftover cereal milk!!!!
Life is – a beach! I love the water and rolling in the sand:)
APRIL 2015 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 35
I often wonder - who's on the other side of the fence? Who is it? Grrrrrr
My greatest achievement is - trusting new people, especially dudes.
When I first met Ryan and Anna it took over an hour for me to work up
the nerve to get in the car, and even then it was because Monika got in
the car and offered me treats. I let Anna pet me, but I didn't want Ryan to
touch me for my first 3 days. The first time I met Anna and Ryan's friends
my hackles went up, I growled and I hid. But then I learned that some-
times new friends have bacon, and if I'm brave enough to come close
and get it they're actually really nice! Now I LOVE it when friends come
over and am more than happy to meet new people and have a pat.
My favourite place in the world is - the beach! The first time they took
me to play in the ocean I was SO HAPPY. And then I chased birds!! And
then my friends where there and we all played in the sand! Then I got hot
and swam again, but then I had to chase birds. So then I just sat in the
sun with Anna and watched Ryan surf.
To all those dogs waiting in pounds I say - don't be limited by what's
happened in your past! My description on the Pet Rescue website said
I didn't like to be touched on the neck, would suit being around older
children and didn't like being picked up by strangers. Tell me, who likes
to be picked up by strangers? Who you are in the shelter is just a sliver
of who you can grow into if you're in a happy family like I am. I love ANY
kind of pat or touch now, and I'm very happy to sit nicely and get a pat
from toddlers and young kids.
I hope the Easter Bunny brings me - BACON!

I did, and that was it. Our bond was formed….

The beautiful Maltese, or cross of that breed,
are an active, fun loving, intelligent dog who
bonds very closely to their family. They can
be loyal and very affectionate and for a small
breed have a huge heart. They make
excellent little watchdogs, are very
protective and they also have a loud bark.
Maltese have profuse hair which has to be
maintained to look good and so they need
committed owners. Many Maltese are
abandoned in a shocking state, filthy and
matted to the skin by people who haven not
been prepared to put in the time to care a
long haired dog. If you are looking for a loyal,
loving dog with personality plus, this is the
breed for you!

CHILDREN & RABBITS!
With thanks to www.boingonline.com for anything you need to know about rabbits...
With Easter almost here baby bunnies again sit in pet shop windows hoping some Mum or Dad
will see them and think they are cute and cuddly—just the perfect Easter gift for a small child!
Cute and cuddly they may be and for far too long it has been thought that rabbits are great
"starter" pets for small children. This is completely inaccurate. Rabbits need gentle care.
Rabbits are misunderstood and delicate creatures with quite strong
personalities, sharp teeth and nails. Not only can children easily injure a rabbit
but also a rabbit can injure your child. All children under 15 should be supervised
with a rabbit. When a rabbit and child are not supervised, the rabbit will always
come out second best.
Sadly there are too many stories about rabbits being accidentally killed by small
children, such as the bunny who was taken to the park and dropped down the
slide until it didn't move anymore. Or the one that was brought inside to sleep
with a little girl who placed it under her pillow where it suffocated overnight.
That's just two true stories, sadly there are so many more. Rabbits are living,
breathing little bundles of personality and love but they are also timid creatures
and loud noises and children running around can scare them.
A BUNNY IS NOT A TOY!
Injuries to the children & rabbit
• Scratches & kicking
Rabbits are built differently to other animals and can
easily be injured if not interacted with correctly.
Rabbits are very bottom heavy. Their back legs are
much bigger than their front legs and this means that
they hold most of their weight in the second half of
their body. If a rabbit is held or picked up incorrectly,
a rabbit will panic and kick out with its strong hind
legs. This kicking can cause a child to drop the
rabbit. A rabbit will drop to the ground bottom first
causing breaks, serious injury and sometimes death.
The child will also be injured by the scratching of the
nails and the kicking of the legs.
APRIL 2015 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 41
• Bites from sharp teeth
When a rabbit turns 5-6 months of age, a bunny will change from that fluffy,
cute and tolerant rabbit that they once were as a baby bunny. Once a bunny
hits 6 months of age, they are now a teenager. Their personality emerges and
they start to make their own decisions on how they want to be treated by their
human friends. Rabbits have very strong personalities and if they do not want
to be handled or picked up as they did as a baby bunny, or are frightened by
chasing or loud noises, they will start to lunge and bite the children.
A rabbit's bite is very sharp and
hard. A rabbit's front teeth need to constantly grow and grind down to
the sharpness of a razor blade to ensure they can chew hard fibrous
When a rabbit bites human skin, the incisor teeth plunge deep into the
skin. Rabbits can hold their bite in fear for quite a long time and the pain
is intense. (See a rabbit bite on hand at left.)
4 IMPORTANT things you need to know about rabbits...
1. Rabbits HATE loud noises and will attack if threatened: Rabbits are not fond of
loud noises, being chased and are very territorial and aggressive if threatened. Most rabbits that are
surrendered to shelters were bought for small children. When the bunny hits the age of around 6 months,
they start to mature and become their own little personality. This is when the bunny decides that they will not
tolerate being picked up or handled roughly. Rabbits can start to growl, lunge, bite or chase whoever is the
threat. Once a bunny starts to show these signs, most families ditch the bun instead of learning how to adjust
and interact with their maturing rabbit.
2. Do you have 10 years to dedicate to a rabbit? Rabbits live for 10 years or more if looked
after properly. Rabbits need regular veterinary visits, desexing & yearly vaccinations. Desexing helps with
behaviour and long term health issues. Calici vaccinations are yearly and this is a good opportunity to have
your bun’s health checked. Rabbits age 8 years to our 1 so a yearly check up is vital to keep up with any
3. Rabbits need good food: Rabbits need good quality vegies that you would eat yourself, not
freebies from a bin. Rabbits need good quality hay from a stockfeed store, not dried up pet hay from a pet
shop or inedible straw.
4. Rabbits need to know they are safe: Rabbits need a safe space to run, not cooped up in a
box in the backyard or left outside to fend for themselves. If inside, they need a safe bunny proofed room
and a safe place to sleep. If they live outside, their enclosure needs to be BIG and INSECT/PREDATOR
All this requires money.
Rabbits need a mature person to look after them. They are not a toy for a small child.
PLEASE don’t buy a rabbit as an Easter present unless you can care for it…
