Top End Lost and Found

Reuniting lost and found pets with their humans

Animals for adoption

Part of this site includes advertising a small number of rescue animals who are looking for homes. Telaf strongly recommends that all companion cats and dogs are desexed as many animals are killed each year at shelters due to not enough homes – supply exceeds demand. Many others end up on the streets living in dreadful conditions as strays. Cats can get pregnant as young as 4 months old. It is an old wives tale that cats and dogs need to have a first litter. Desexing ensures they live healthier, happier and longer lives. For more information on desexing contact or your local animal shelter. or look for information on desexing on the web.

If you are looking to adopt a new companion animal into your home and there are none here, consider going to your local RSPCA, PAW,S TERG or DARG (See links on right) where there are beautiful and deserving animals all waiting hopefully for a second chance at life.

By giving a rescue animal a home you are giving the most precious gift of all – life.

  1. why are there no dogs listed here, I know for a fact that the pound have several animals who are not claimed, I’ve searched this DCC pound site and nothing comes up.

    • Hi Tracy, I’m not sure if you mean why are there no dogs listed as ‘forever homes wanted’ on telaf or on the DCC pound site? if its the pound site you will need to take that up with them. If its for telaf – there are a few – Oscar, Bardu, Jack and Denim. (click on the ‘forever homes needed’ under categories and they will come up for you (however they are a bit old now so may not still be available). Telaf advertises ‘forever homes needed’ for any animal that is stray/homeless. We are not a site for rehoming animals that people are relinquishing except under extraordinary circumstances, there are other sites for this. We assess all requests and we can only post for homes for animals when requested. The RSPCA occasionally sends through requests. DCC used to but haven’t for some time. I hope this answers your question. – kind regards – Sideon

  7. Im looking to adopt a medium sized dog, prefer male, kelpie, lab or mixed breed and adult/mature rather than a pup. Not keen on bull breeds (eg staffy, mastiff, pitty, arab) but will consider anything if temperament is right. Must be desexed. Most important is that it is very good with dogs, cats, chickens and other small animals. Excellent family home guaranteed, fully fenced yard, inside whenever it wants, daily walks, including along the beach, good care and loads of love for the rest of its life.

    • Hi Kate,
      Are you still looking for a dog. I have one that I am trying to find a home for, she has been mistreated in the past and she needs a good home. She has a beautiful temperament and is very loving.

  8. Hi Angie
    Thanks for your message. I have adopted a labrador x from another family who didnt want her anymore. Your dog sounds lovely but unfortunately I cant take another one right now. Good luck rehoming her. Kate

    • I have 3 puppies looking for homes right now, all males and very likeable chaps who were part of a litter of 9 that was dumped. They look like they might have a bit of Pitty in them, I have called them Huey, Dewey and Louie for now. Huey has a black face and ears and is brown everywhere else, Dewey is the leader of the pack and has a white Blaze on his face and Louie (who is the sweetest of all) is a Brindle. They are all solid little boys with curious natures and need forever homes now. If you are interested in adopting one of them please contact Rachelle at Darwin Animal Rescue on their facebook page.
