Furry friends up for adoption

CANINE friends of all colours, shapes and sizes are waiting at the Mareeba Animal Refuge for their new furr-ever home, with some of the following friendly faces up for adoption.


To help promote adoptions for the refuge, the annual Pet Fair will be taking off on 30 April at Arnold Park to display the talents of local and refuge pets from across Mareeba. 

All dogs are up for adoption for $320. For more information and to see the other dogs and cats at the Refuge, call 4092 3060 or visit the facility at 35 Hickling Drive, Mareeba.


ROMY has only recently made the refuge it’s temporary home, after being a stray in Irvinebank for approximately one year. She is believed to be a Bull Arab x Dane and so far, has been quite friendly with the other dogs. She has not been tested with cats yet. Romy has not had her vet work done on her just yet, but anyone interested in her can call the refuge to organise her vet work and welcome her to her new home.


LITTLE miss Kida is a sassy Staffy x Kelpie who loves a bit of attention, suiting best to a home without other dogs and small children. Regardless, the one-year-old pup is bright and friendly and full of energy. Kida is vaccinated, microchipped and desexed, ready for her new home.


SIX-year-old Lucky is a Wolfhound x and is a great guard dog for a loving family. He is vaccinated, microchipped and desexed and can appear aggressive behind a fence so good fencing would be preferred. Lucky also does not like cats but is well mannered and ready for his paw-fect family.


DINO is a one-year-old male Basenji x who loves a good belly scratch. He is completely vaccinated, microchipped and desexed and ready for his new home. He is uncertain around other dogs that the refuge knows of. He can appear a little aggressive at first but after releasing some of his energy in a quick “zoomie”, he is a gentle boy who loves a good cuddle.


MILEY is a playful and loving Bull Arab x with an affectionate heart. She is eight years old and was abandoned by her last owners as she does not get along with other pets in the house. She is completely vaccinated, microchipped and desexed and ready for her new home.


KINGSTON is a threeyear- old male red cattle x with a very active lifestyle. As well as being an affectionate friend, he is also a very good guard dog and working dog. He is completely vaccinated, microchipped and desexed and would prefer to be the only dog in the household.Kingston is very gentle and is well behaved when being walked on a lead.
