Hunt on to find Coco a new home
A “SUPER sweet” dog called Coco is on the hunt for a new home, and Remote Animal Assistance Far North Queensland is trying to find her one.
The six-month-old Bull Arab cross landed at the pound when she was just 12 weeks of age.
According to RAA founder Jess Leeming, Coco is incredibly smart, affectionate, and loving.
“She can even kiss on request. She loves going for walks at the beach and would be well suited to a family with kids,” Jess said.
“Although Coco's current foster carer loves her very much, he's going on holiday soon. To avoid causing Coco stress by moving her around and allowing her to become attached to another carer, we're on the search for an urgent forever home for her.”
Jess said her carer described Coco as friendly, gentle and intelligent.
“Her favourite things to do with her current foster carer are going to the pub - she loves to meet new people, chill out by her carer's side, and receive oodles of pats from passersby, and beach walks,” she said.
“She loves playing in the water, jumping on rocks, and running around in the sun.
“She loves kids, gets along well with other dogs, and would be suitable for any kind of home - whether as an only dog with an active owner, a house with other dogs, or a house full of kids.”
Coco’s carer is going away on 9 December and Jess said they hoped to find a home before then.
Jess said Coco is located in Cairns but RAA can arrange for a meet and greet to take place on the Tablelands.
All of her vet work (desexing, microchipping, vaccinations, health check) is completed and up to date.
“If we think Coco is a great match for their home, we will work with them to arrange an initial meet and greet,” Jess said.
“From there, we enter our two-week mandatory trial period so that adopters can be sure she's the right fit for them. If anything changes during this 2-week trial, we will take her back into care and they'll receive a full refund of her $380 adoption fee.”

Potential adopters can submit an enquiry via the SavourLife Adopt-A-Dog platform and RAA will respond with the adoption enquiry form. Alternatively, a digital version of the form can be found via: www.remoteanimalassistance.com/enquire
RAA was established in October 2022 and has helped save 63 animals during this time.
Jess said their focus was primarily on animal rescue from remote communities across FNQ, but they had strong working relationships with other pounds to step in at times when animals closer to home needed their help.
