William Skea’s Animal Rescues is a Sydney-based animal rescue organisation focused on improving the lives of and reducing the populations of previously rescued cats and dogs from shelters found within Sydney. Our primary focus to rescue as many animals from these shelters as possible, but also to improve the living conditions at these shelters for the remaining animals. We treat, rehabilitate, and then adopt rescued animals for adoption.
The adoption process begins when the interested party sends forward an Expression of Interest application. William will then assesses their home for suitability. If William feels the adopter's home and the adopter are suitable, the adopter may liaise with the foster carer to organise a meet and greet at the foster carer's house. We do not take the cat/kitten out of their known environment for meet and greets. William will ask the foster carer for feedback on the adopters’ suitability.
If the interested party is suitable, William will organise all adoption paperwork and monies, and commence the adoption trial.
The adoption trial is a 2-week period that may only begin once the animal has passed its adopter's suitability check, a veterinary health check, has current vaccination paperwork, a desexing certificate, and flea/worm treatment. The behaviour of the animal is also observed and assessed before making them available for adoption to help ensure that the animal is appropriate for adoption and to determine the behavioural needs of the animal.
Once the adoption trial has succeeded and the owner is satisfied to keep the animal, a second house visit is carried out with the animal's paperwork handed over to the new owner.
