Shelter. Forest woman Roxene “Rocky” Kingston has opened her heart and home in allowing pet owners to bring their cats and dogs without charge to the Forest Cattery and Kennel.
As fires ravage areas of Circular Head with the likelihood of the burning lasting weeks, Rocky took to social media to say: ‘If anyone affected by fires needs pets cared for just call 0427 583 311.’
“I am more than happy to offer this service to people,” she said.
“It would be an awful situation to be in, at least knowing their pets are safe is one less thing to worry about.
“Molly, Alfie and Ella (dogs) came in last night (last Thursday) as their homes were under threat from fires.”
Rocky has also taken in two kittens.
