Milly the Goat & 2 Sheep Moving to New Home Soon!

***UPDATE 10/12/10***

Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to update you all on the situation with these lovely critters.

A very generous lady from Albany has offered to give a home to all three.  She is due to pick them up soon to take them to her large property where Milly, Fatso & Jack will get to play with 3 other goats, as well as Alpacas, donkeys, llamas and some horses too.  We’re so happy that these guys will be going to a dedicated animal rescuer who has experience with headstrong goats (cue Milly!) and knows how much love and attention rescue animals need (many of her existing critters are rescues.)

We also have a couple of backup offers to fall back on in case anything should go wrong – so we are really pleased to announce that because of the DesperatePets/twitter/facebook and blog following community – yes YOU – these guys look like they will be a-ok!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!  From the bottom of my heart, Milly’s heart, Jack & Fatso’s and most fervently – from the hearts of the family who had to ask for our help. This means the world to them.

Rockingham 12 All Rescued!


All of these dogs were either adopted or placed into rescue care!

This message comes from Bec at Staffy & Bully breed rescue… please help the Rockingham 12!

Hi All,

It was good news last week with all dogs at stirling pound that were urgent being adopted, 4 in total. 🙂

This week though Rockingham Pound is full and some of these dogs have very little chance if not adopted soon, so this is rather urgent for 9 of the 12 dogs of which 3 have rescue backup so far.

If you are willing to foster care one of these dogs please contact us and we will put you in touch with an appropriate rescue who will arrange this with you….most are full up so cannot fit more dogs in unless they have foster carers to help.

Dogs urgent are Impound Numbers: (in order of website appearance from last page back to 1st, bottom right to top left)

976 (male brindle staffy x)
974 (female black kelpie x)
979 (male black ridgeback x)
987 (female tan staffy x)
993 (male Black and white rotti x looks mastiff)
992 (female black and white staffy x)
991 (male black and white border collie x)
990 (male black and tan rotti)- will be safe with Rotti Rescue

989 (female black and tan rotti) – will be safe with Rotti Rescue
988 (male brindle and white mastiff x)- has rescue backup
999 (male tan staffy x)
1001 (female ginger and white husky x)

All dogs are free (apart from registration) to adopt but the dog must be booked into a local vet in the area for sterilisation and vaccination and a Rockingham Ranger will drop the dog you adopt to the vet for you on the day its booked in and then you are required to pick the dog up and pay the cost of the vac and sterilisation.

To Adopt:
Please call Rockingham Pound on 9528 0303
Dog Pound Location: Hurrell Way, Rockingham (on the left of the Community Projects building).
Open Times: 3.30pm – 4.00pm – Monday to Friday (Gate will be open and a Ranger will be in attendance at the pound).

Dogs can be seen on the Rockingham Pound website on the below link.

Extra Info:
Dear Rescuers,

A rather depressing situation at the Rockingham pound with heaps of beautiful, deserving dogs abandoned to their fate… The Rangers are doing the best they can to put off the unthinkable but its a terrible situation. Best if I put it in point form to make it easier to read.

1) Attached are some extra pics of some the Rockingham Pound dogs seeking homes/rescue or foster care (please read image name/ number for appropriate dog and impound number)

2) 993(M) and 992(F/M) who are the Rotti x and Staffy x surrendered to the pound and were housemates. They were surrendered to the pound because the owner has shacked up with a girlfriend who has a cat.

3) 998 The Special Case: Ranger Andrew brought this fellow to my attention: He is a B I G Mastiff X who has been wandering the bush for some time before being taken in. Unfortunately, this chap has a big abcess on his back and has received some primary care and antibiotics but once the tablets run out, that’s it as the council will not pay anymore care costs. I can organise some replacement antibiotics to continue treatment but this fellow needs a sympathetic home to nurse him up again. Very friendly, very big but quite placid and surprisingly quiet. If anyone deserved an “URGENT” tag stuck to their bottoms, it would be him, any help on the Golf Course Mastiff 988 would be great as Andrew would also love to see him saved – along with the rest of us… (we are seeking foster care for this dog)

Kind Regards,

***UPDATE 10/12//10***

Great news! Ebony found a temp home until Jan 2nd.  Woohhoooo for Ebony!!! 😀


***UPDATE 27/11//10***

Good news and bad.  Someone from the Water Corp has offered Ebony a home, but she can’t do it until after 2 January as she will be away.  Ross needs to find somewhere within the next 2 weeks.  Can anyone please offer Ebony a temporary home until 2nd Jan??


Can anyone please help Ebony by offering to adopt or at least foster her for a while? An animal of this age is in real danger of being put down if sent to a shelter. Please contact Nancy on email below if you think you can help.

Sent: Tuesday, 23 November 2010 7:33 AM

This poor little orphaned pussy is 10 yrs old and her owner has been taken to a nursing home. She is being fed by neighbours, but she’ll be taken to the RSPCA if a forever home isn’t found very soon. If anyone is able to foster her it would also help. Could you please circulate this SOS to your contacts.

Please contact Nancy Hartshorn email: if you can help.

Majic & Zoe are the only girls left – please help them!


Majic and Zoe have been adopted – thanks to Bec @ Staffy & Bully Breed rescue and the APS! 🙂


** UPDATE – 8/11/10 **
All of the dogs in this post have either been rehomed or taken on by Animal Protection Society – except for Majic and Zoe. Majic in particular is in danger as her time is running out so please help to spread the word for her and if you can, please consider offering Majic a home. If you would like to offer to foster Majic, contact Bec Johnson instead of the Pound. Let’s work together to save Majic from euthanasia!!

This message comes from Bec of Staffy and Bully Breed Rescue. These dogs are desperate and are located in Stirling Pound in Perth, Western Australia. Please read their stories below and if you can help, please do so, take a look at little Minnie at bottom of this post, she looks terrified. :'(. We are their last chance – these dogs need a hero, could it be you?

Hi All,

This weeks we have quite a few urgent staffies and american staffies in pounds plus some littlies who are looking for homes. Below are the Stirling dogs all females and requiring homes. Quite a few were put down last week at pounds so we really need people to help spread the word, whether you can adopt, foster care or just forward on this email, every little bit helps. We will send some seperate emails for others needing homes in other pounds.

The City of Stirling Animal Care Facility is located at 15 Natalie Way, Balcatta.

Telephone: 9345 8584

The Facility is open weekdays 2.00pm – 5.30pm and weekends 12.30pm -1.30pm.

Please ring the pound only if your wanting to adopt, if your wanting to foster your welcome to contact us and we can direct you in the right direction as we have loads of different rescues seeking foster carers for different types of dogs at present.

Adoption fee is $170.00 for any of these dogs.

Price includes vaccination, heartworm test and sterilisation for unsterilised dogs. Registration costs are extra.

First up we have Sharee (photo not avail). American Staffy female approx 3 years of age, not great with other dogs but something that can be worked on and of course lovely with people and has basic obedience training. Being youngish, a moderately active family would suit her best. Sharee is one of the more desperate cases as she has been in the pound 3 weeks now and her time is limited.

Next up we have Majic..a female kelpie x staffy/bully type. Shes under 12 months and would suit an active household who has the time to put some training into her. A home with little kids would not be suitable as she is a bit jumpy … but nothing a good run out of the pound and some regular training wouldnt solve. Majic is also quite urgent.


And then we have Zoe…what a sweety! Zoe is a Jack Russell x female approx 8 or 9 years and looking for her retirement and a casual daily walk.


Next we have Esta and Minnie (terrier x and chi x) (no photos). These two girls came in together and Derek the Animal Care Facility Co Cordinator at Stirling would really like to see these two go together as they really love each other. These two would suit a quieter family.

Thankyou all for your help.

Kind Regards,

Extremely URGENT- Staffy x needs home by tomorrow!

I just heard from Bec that this guy was adopted! WOOHOO!! THANK YOU to everyone who shared his story!! 😀 xx

Please help this little guy!

From: Bec Johnson
Date: 13 October 2010 2:16:25 PM AWST

Hi All,

There is an extremely urgent case at Wanneroo Pound. A male Staffy x approx 6 to 8 months (rangers guess) needs a home or will be put down tomorrow. He needs secure fencing ie approx 6ft fencing as he can jump so no low fencing and preferably a home where he can be indoors when your home, as this may be part of the reason he will jump out, due to lack of attention. It will also probably help once hes sterilised…no hormones to make him want to stray to find a mate.

He has until tomorrow to find a home so if everyone could please forwad this to your workmates friends and family asap we may be able to save him.

Please contact Wanneroo Animal Care Centre on 9405 5000 during office hours, or 1300 138 393 after hours if you can give him a home.

Kind Regards,
Staffy and Bully Breed Rescue

Pedigree Ragdolls need a loving home


These lovely kitties finally found a home!

This message comes from Cat Haven in Shenton Park (Western Australia). A wonderful opportunity to save a a beautiful pair of pedigree cats! 😀

Coco (Chocolate Point) and Sachi (Lilac Point) are two absolutely stunning pedigree Ragdoll brothers who have been surrendered to Cat Haven due to allergies in the family. They are typical ragdolls, sociable affectionate and cuddly; Coco is the more out-going of the pair while Sachi is more content to just laze around all day long. Both like cuddles and sleeping on your couch or bed, they love to be brushed and pampered; these boys are way above shelter life, they need a real home to call their own! Coco and Sachi have been indoor cats their whole life and it really needs to stay that way if possible; they will be best suited to a home without little kids or other animals, though they are laidback and friendly and shouldn’t take too long to settle in.
As they are brothers who have been together it would be lovely to see them go home together (though we will separate if absolutely necessary).Although these boys have a couple of special needs/wants in their new home you shouldn’t allow this to put you off. They are genuinely lovely cats with lots of love to give, just looking for that special someone to give it to. They are unique and beautiful and are looking for someone who will love them for their personalities, not just their good looks and breeding.

Coco and Sachi are 5 years. The adoption package is $165 inclusive of sterilisation, microchipping and vaccination, plus we do “buy one get one half price” so if you wanted both these beautiful boys you will still be paying under $300 for 2 sterilised, chipped, vaccinated, worm and flea treated pedigree Ragdolls – what a bargain!
Please contact me on 0403 152 991 if you’re interested.
Cheers, Freedom 🙂

Recommended Books

Recommended read – Skinny Bitch

Check out this book! I’m reading it now and just LOVING it!


Skinny Bitch

Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin. With such blunt advice as, “Soda is liquid Satan” and “You are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin,” it’s a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant. Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations. Behind all the attitude, however, there’s solid guidance. Skinny Bitch espouses a healthful lifestyle that promotes whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and encourages women to get excited about feeling “clean and pure and energized.”
