Our Special Duty of Care Animals.

These special pets have come into DABS care and for many and varied reasons Dabs can not rehome them, if you read each of their stories you will understand each have a very different reason that has caused us to reach this decision. DABS will never euthanize any animal that with medical care can continue to live a good and happy life. But this costs money and we are asking you to help us care for these special souls by Sponsoring any of the Duty of Care Dogs or Cats listed below. Just click on the blue sponsor me button. Thank You

Kane is a gorgeous 6-month-old kitten that unfortunately has ‘episodes’ (thought to be caused by an inter cranial infection when born). During these episodes, Kane can stop breathing – requiring mouth to snout resuscitation, becomes dehydrated – needing subcutaneous fluids, body temperature dropping (sometimes close to hypothermic) – requiring heat packs. His episodes can last anything from 40 minutes up to about 6 hours. He has been rushed to the vet for these episodes numerous times but sadly there is nothing they can do for him. To save him the trauma of these frantic trips, I care for him at home during his episodes doing all treatment needed & then just hold & love him. There is no pattern to when he has these episodes & he has gone 5 weeks without having one, unfortunately the longer the period between his episodes the longer the duration of them when he has his next one. Kane is always a little sleepy & clumsy for a couple of hours after an episode but then becomes an ‘ordinary’, loving & playful little boy. He will remain with me & be loved for the rest of his life.


This young boy has Wobbley kitten Syndrome, which means his brain has not fully formed, ocourse Toppy thinks he is just fine, this causes him no pain and is not contagious ,why this happens no one truely knows at this time. And Toppy may one day be able to go to a very person and have a forever home, but for now he needs love which he gets from his cat carer and support from you.Please Help Toppy be the best boy he can be.

MIST and SADIE Are two, scary cats who will stay with DABS in care as they very shy and have either a very hard life or some trauma in life before arriving into DABS care. Please sponsor one of these kitties, so they can enjoy the safe haven they have now with DABS
