Dale is a quiet and gentle senior, who isn't looking for a lot of interaction but if you take the time to get to know him, you will see his affectionate side.

He enjoys a good brush, particularly if it comes with a few treats to win him over, as he does love his food! He's used to sharing with other cats and gets along well. He is often found head butting or cuddling up with his best mate Champs (also available for adoption) so if you're looking for a bonded duo, they would love a home together!

He does prefer a more relaxed pace so would be best suited to a quieter home environment.

Black cats are hard to photograph so he's a little video of Dale relaxing in a condo in his cattery room.

Adoption Details: Adoption process Interested in meeting or adopting one of our animals? 1. Please complete our online application form by clicking on the APPLY NOW button. 2. Our Adoption Committee (in consultation with Foster Carer, if applicable) will assess your application against the needs of the animal you are applying for. 3. If your application is to progress to the next stage, you will be invited to a "Meet & Greet" appointment (at our Huntly North Shelter) where you will get to meet the animal you are interested in. If the meeting is a success and all parties are happy to proceed, an adoption can take place on the day or if the potential new home is local to Bendigo, we have the option to ‘trial’ first. BAWCS takes back any animal that does not work out for whatever reason. We insist that the animal must be returned to us and is not to be transferred to any other party if the adoption doesn't work out, regardless of what time has elapsed. You can adopt with confidence from BAWCS!
