From the RSPCA to Tropical Paradise
On Friday 6 August 2010, loveable five-month-old German Shepherd x Irish Wolfhound, Max, will be jet setting from his current home at the RSPCA Sydney Shelter to his new lush 1.5 acre pad in Fiji!
“A couple of weeks ago, in the hope of finding him a new home, Max was transferred from the Sydney Shelter to the RSPCA Care Centre at Rouse Hill,” said Alyesha Dickins, Care Centre Supervisor. “But he wasn’t here long as very soon we received a call from Jenny Slatter in Fiji asking if she could adopt him.”
Jenny was looking at http://www.adoptapet.com.au/ from her tropical paradise and knew she’d found the right dog for her. Since then, RSPCA NSW has been working with the Department of Agriculture, Fiji and WSPA to ensure the road to Max’s new overseas home runs smoothly.
“Max has his import permit and has received all the necessary veterinary tests to live in Fiji. He’s due for his final worming this Thursday, before his flight on Friday,” said Aleysha. “His owner is rapt – Max has to be in quarantine for seven days but she said she’ll be visiting him every day.”
This is certainly a rehoming with a difference and the RSPCA looks forward to keeping in contact with the Slatter family and of course, Max.
