Domestic Animals Act 1994 Amendments

Recent amendments to the Domestic Animals Act 1994 have resulted in changes to the legal requirements of Foster and Rescue Groups within Victoria. Under the new provisions of the act we are now required to provide a microchip number with each animal advertised for adoption. Where previously we were able to advertise kittens on our website prior to having them microchipped, and rely on the deposit from their new foster family to help cover the costs of this, we are now required to have each kitten microchipped before they are posted for adoption on our website. Although this new provision is a positive step in pet identification, it means that we can no longer advertise any kittens under 6 weeks old as this is the minimum age for microchipping and we must cover the microchipping costs prior to placing the kitten on our website for adoption.These new requirements, along with inflation have increased the costs charged by our veteranarians to provide the microchipping, de-sexing and vaccinating service.

As a result, the cost of adopting a kitten through us has risen to $170. The cost of adopting an older cat or one of our mother cats will remain at $135 as they are often harder to rehome when in competition with the kittens.

Although we have been forced to increase our adoption fees to continue with our work, you can be comfortable in the knowledge that a cat or kitten adopted from Peninsula Cat Rescue is vet checked, de-sexed, microchipped and vaccinated. By adopting from us you are helping to promote responsible pet ownership and are helping to break the cycle and save a life.

We thank you for your continued support.

4th August 2011 - Meet Charlotte

Charlotte is a 16 week old Blue Grey Tabby. She was surrendered at a shire shelter having suffered alleged abuse by her previous owners. With such a loving, affectionate personality we took Charlotte in and were determined to give her a second chance. Following a check by our vet it was found that she had a fracture to her hip which if left untreated would cause her permanent pain and suffering. We are happy to report that Charlotte underwent surgery on her hip today and is now back in her foster home resting comfortably. Although her recovery will be very slow, she will now get the love and support she needs and she should make a full recovery. Looking at little Charlotte now and having her purr at us following such a major operation reinforces to us why we do what we do.

If you would like to help us with Charlotte's surgery and recovery costs donations can be made to Peninsula Cat Rescue BSB 633 000 A/C 141212415. Please use "Charlotte" as your reference number.

For a receipt please email your details to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . All donations over $2.00 are fully tax deductible.

Charlotte thanks you.

PETstock In-Store adoption day

Mornington Peninsula Leader Newspaper followed out progress during our adoption weekend at PETstock Mornington. Indie, Sam and their family proudly posed for the Leader Newspaper photographers with their new family members Pixie and Ninja.

On 22nd March 2011 Mornington Leader ran an article on our work with the elderly at Andrew Kerr Frail and Aged Care Complex in Mornington. Our kittens visit the complex each week and spend a day with the residents. As well as exposing the kittens to a different environment it also provides a huge amount of joy to the residents. They wait for 'kitten day' each week and make sure they have purchased all of the supplies needed to keep them happy for the day. We would like to thank the residents and staff for their support and look forward to a long and enjoyable association. Our thanks also to Mornington Leader Newspaper for helping to spread the word.

On Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd May Peninsula Cat Rescue in conjunction with Petstock Mornington held an in-store adoption day. Our committee and fosterers were in store all day along with our little 4 legged friends. We are pleased to announce that over the weekend we were able to find loving forever homes for 18 of our beautiful kittens. A huge thank you to everyone who came along over the weekend to support us in raising awareness of this ever increasing problem. A massive thank you also to Gary, Jill and all the sensational staff at Petstock Mornington. Your support means more to us than you can imagine and we look forward to a long and successful partnership.  For those who were unable to attend we will be announcing our next In Store Adoption Day soon.
