Welcome to the DCH Animal Adoptions site.
DCH Animal Adoptions, which stands for dogs, cats & horses, is a NSW based non-profit animal rescue charity (CFN 18284) committed to the rescue and rehoming of unwanted and neglected domestic animals – mainly dogs, cats and
horses - but occasionally other animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs. Our volunteers rescue
animals from certain death in Sydney’s pounds and shelters and horses from the knackery and ensure they are provided with medical attention and foster care until a permanent and loving home can be found.
The foster system benefits you in finding your new companion, by providing you with valuable information about the animal gained through the carer's experiences in a home environment – we look after them until you find them (or they find you!). Our dogs and cats are vaccinated wormed,
desexed and microchipped. Horses will have their teeth done and
Our animals are available for an adoption fee which helps with the reimbursement of our veterinary costs. Our site features photographs, a little about each animal and contact numbers where you can find out more information.
We would be pleased to assist you in finding the right companion for your lifestyle. As we are a part of a large rescue network in Sydney and surrounds, our links page can be another resource for you in finding your dream pet.
DCH Animal Adoptions is run entirely by a dedicated group of volunteers with a wide range of roles – if you would like to become involved, become a foster carer or to make a donation, we would love to hear from you. Even just a few minutes of your time!
We are fortunate to have a wonderful group of vets who work hard with us to provide care and compassion to rescued animals.
We would also like to extend our thanks to the staff at the pounds who work with us to try and save as many animals as possible, often outside of hours. They do an often
thankless task on behalf of the public. On a day to day basis this can mean seeing
animals in dreadful condition (they may have been abandoned, neglected or abused), dealing with the public in stressful situations, trying to nurse animals back to health and holding their paws when their time is deemed up.
