NRAS works with similar animal groups within the Northern Rivers region as well as local Councils to assist with fostering and re-homing companion animals.

Whilst NRAS has a rescue Shelter in Ballina, the organisation will continue to operate on a fostering basis where voluntary carers provide temporary housing, shelter and comfort for its animals before they are ready or able to find a new family.   

Rehoming Number:  R251000060

and his pack mates, 5 boys and a girl, were found wandering in Goonellabah late in Oct 2022. 

They were rather thin, covered in fleas and a little frightened when NRAS took them into the shelter where they were bathed, flea, tick and wormed and spread amongst a few of the NRAS foster carers. 

Bowie is named after David Bowie, as he has a unique right eye, where there is a little of the dark pigment missing.  The vets have checked this and it is suspected that there is no long or short term medical impacts.  The litter was predominantly white in colour with quite fair, pink skin, but Bowie has been particularly hardy, with no skin issues and copes well out in the sun.

Bowie was the smallest of the boys and was very shy when first

meeting his foster family, where he was placed with his sister and two

brothers, Sonny, Cher & Prince 

Bowie was the last of the litter to remain in care has won the hearts

of his foster family with his amusing and cheeky behaviour, sometimes

stealing the garden shovel for a chew.      

This little guy has also won the hearts of the volunteers at NRAS

who shed many a tear when he left a recent adoption day with his

new family, heading off to live his BEST LIFE.
