Orfée Dogs and Cats for Adoption
Dogs and Cats:
These are the dogs and cats currently available for adoption.
- Orfée Dogs: These are the Orfée dogs available for adoption where dogs are under the full responsibility and care of Orfée, and a contract will be signed between Orfée and the adopters at the time of adoption.
- Orfée Cats: These are the Orfée dogs available for adoption where dogs are under the full responsibility and care of Orfée, and a contract will be signed between Orfée and the adopters at the time of adoption.
- Non Orfée Dogs: These are non-Orfée dogs available for private adoption where Orfée has agreed to help their current owners find a new home.
- Non Orfée Cats: These are non-Orfée cats available for private adoption where Orfée has agreed to help their current owners find a new home.
Here we have categorised the dogs and cats according to their progress within our adoption process. Please note that dogs and cats can fall under multiple categories, for example; For Foster, For Adoption, At Risk and for Sponsorship.
- On Hold: Either the dog or cat is still in its 10 day delay period whilst we search for its owner, or, further assessment is deemed necessary prior to placing in foster or adoption.
- For Foster: The dog or cat is currently in the pound and looking for a foster home.
- For Adoption: The dog or cat is deemed suitable for adoption, with no known cause for concern.
- At Risk: Please help us give these dogs a second chance. When indicated that a dog is at risk it means that we have been put on alert that the dog is at risk of being euthanised due to the pound being full. These dogs are our priority for Foster, Adoption or Sponsorship.
- For Sponsorship: These are dogs where Orfée is looking for financial assistance to help towards extra ordinary expenses, such as medial bills, kenneling or behavioral assessment fees.
- Under Enquiry: An application for adoption has been received and is being vetted. If you are interested in a dog that is ‘under enquiry’ then please let us know as the current application may not be suitable, or may fall through.
- Pending Adoption: An adoption application has been approved and the dog is in the process of transfer to its new owners, or is on ‘trial’ at its new home.
Prior to adoption (and foster) all Orfée dogs and cats will have been vet checked and issued with a certificate of health, micro-chipped, neutered / spayed (age and health dependent) and will have been treated for worms, fleas and ticks. Their vaccinations will be up-to-date and we will inform you whether they need a booster, rabies injection or if they have a passport. Orfée will also conduct pre and post adoption home visits.
Here we have categorised the dogs based on their weight. All cats have been classified as ‘Small’.
- Small: Less than 10kg
- Medium: Between 10kg and 25kg
- Large: Between 25kg and 40kg
- Giant: Greater than 40kg
Here we have categorised the dogs and cats according to their age.
- Pup: Puppies and kittens up-to 6 months of age
- Junior: Dogs and cats between 6 months and 2 years of age
- Adult: Dogs and cats between 2 years and 9 years of age
- Senior: Dogs and cats older than 9 years
This is the department where the dog or cat is currently located, either in the pound, in kennels or at its foster home.
- Roumania: Orfée has teamed up with a refuge in Roumania and, resources permitting, tries to bring over at least 5 dogs every couple of months. If we have dogs showing, then these are the dogs that have been tentatively reserved for a ‘Happy Bus’ ticket to France! If you are interested in one of these dogs (either to foster or adopt) then please let us know as they may not get their ticket unless some interest has been shown.
