Our aim at Little Paws Orphan Rescue is to successfully rescue, rehabilitate and ethically find loving, secure and well matched homes for our rescued felines. We also aim to inform new owners about responsible pet ownership and preventative healthcare.
Little Paws Orphan Rescue is a husband and wife team with a home in Sydney. For 13 years I have used my knowledge and skills learnt from working as a vet nurse in some of Sydney's largest 24hour referral hospitals to help felines that fall through the cracks of other animal welfare organisations. This includes:
1. Orphaned newborns requiring 24hour care
2. Kittens who just need time to grow before they are ready for adoption
3. Kittens that have an injury, disease or illness that requires veterinary treatment
4. Special needs kittens (vision impaired, congenital heart defect etc.)
5. Timid kittens who need time and TLC
Each kitten is kept in a loving home environment and treated as one of our own. We provide love, stability, socialisation and veterinary care. Once ready for adoption, we are able to give you a good description of their personality, likes, dislikes and what sort of family they would best suit.
Little Paws Orphan Rescue is entirely self funded. The more resources we have, the more rescue work we can do. Outgoings are particularly expensive as the adoption fee does not cover the medical expenses to get them to the point of adoption and some kittens require months in foster care whilst receiving veterinary treatment. Donations can go towards an individual kittens care if requested. We are currently fundraising for Anra, a little kitten who requires heart surgery https://www.gofundme.com/arnaheartsurgery
Before adopting a new pet, ensure all family members understand that a pet is an emotional and financial commitment that you need to be prepared to love, house and keep safe for the next 15 to 20 years. This means premium nutrition, preventative health care, regular veterinary check-ups and keeping them inside or only having access to a cat proof area or yard. Pet insurance with accident and illness cover gives you piece of mind knowing your pet can get the veterinary care they may need and you don’t have to worry about the expense.
Next step is to organise a meet and greet. Depending on your location, we bring the feline/s to you or you can come and visit the orphanage. There is sometimes a 24hour wait from the meet and greet to collecting your new family member so everyone has a night to think things over and so you have a chance to get your home prepared. If all goes well and everyone is happy, the adoption paperwork is signed and you collect your new family member.
All adoptions are subject to a two week settling in period. If it turns out your new addition is not quiet the perfect match, you are welcome to return them. The adoption fee is refunded in full if the kitten/cat is returned within the two week settling in period.
All adoptions come with an adoption pack which contains all their certificates and paperwork, information on preventative health care, diet, pet insurance and potential toxins/poisons around the home.
