Adoption Tails

Friends of the Pound have worked incredibly hard over the past eleven years to rehome abandoned orphans to loving, permanent families. We are extremely proud to receive stories of orphans who are now in permanent families of their own and love sharing them with the community.

If you have adopted an orphan from our care, we would love to hear from you, please email your story and photo to

We hope you enjoy our adoption tails, to the right are stories we have received from people that have rescued a companion animal from our care. We hold all of our orphans very close to our hearts and will remember them no matter the length of their stay with us at Friends of the Pound!

Since coming into my life and family she has brought so much laughter, fun and general...Read more...

Missey - The Long Road Home
Friends of the Pound helped out Animal Rights and Rescue in Lismore by taking Missy when they did not have a foster home for her. We rehomed Missy with a lovely family but their circumstances changed and Missy started displaying signs of dog aggression and they were worried for her safety. We took her back and she went into foster care with Phil and Veita Henshaw at Kingscliff. We had many enquiries about Missy but most people had another dog or inadequate fencing. ...Read more...

Adoption Tail - Sunny
My name is Sunny “Sunshine” Campbell and I’m a 5 year old Staffy X Ridgeback. I don’t remember much about the beginning of my life but when I was about 2 years old I was found wandering around the streets. My tummy was full of whip worms and I wasn’t very healthy. I ended up at the pound where a wonderful group of people from Friends of the Pound saved me and put me into foster care. They chose two sisters, Carolyn and Allison to take...Read more...

Adoption Tail - Bella
Bella is a beautiful black lab cross, who we fell in love with when we were sent a picture of her by e mail. I was impressed, on collecting her, how much she came with, a bed, a cover, a lead, 2 collars, food, she had been thoroughly checked by a vet, vaccinated, wormed, desexed and was micro-chipped!!! More importantly, my mind was at rest that she had a good temperament because we have 3 small children. Bella had been living in one of the 'Friends of The...Read more...
