Finding The Perfect Pet

Over 1000 animals rehomed since 2019

Bruno (11 months)

This boy is an absolute ripper! He came to us as a confused, sad and troubled cat, but is now a super smooch machine!! He will be very shy on first meeting, and is still very nervous and confused by the world. But once you have earned his trust, he is an absolute love bug! He is learning that indoors is safe and food is plentiful and soft beds are actually pretty nice.

His light colouring and nervous nature mean that he will absolutely need to be an indoor only boy. But you won’t hear any complaints from him! He is still very young at 11 months old and he will continue to fill out and get stronger. He is not suited to young children or elderly.

Currently in foster care with other cats and respectful dogs, we feel he would be best suited to a quieter home where he is the only pet, or with another pet who is very laid back and not likely to challenge him. Someone home more often than not, as he really does seek out the company of his people. He is still learning what toys are, but does like to play… he needs someone who can continue to develop his confidence, and dote on him. He will benefit from consistency and routine, as he likes to know what to expect each day.

Finding the Perfect Match

  1. Energy Levels
    Is the pet laid back, playful or energetic.  Does it prefer to nap most of the day, or does it require regular interaction (and in the case of a dog, how many times a day will it require walking?) Does this fit with your lifestyle and time availability?
  2. Personality and Temperament
    Is the pet shy, confident, adaptable, fearful, laid back, independent etc?  How would this pet’s personality fit with the dynamic in your household?
  3. Special Needs
    Does the pet have have any special needs (eg. fears, triggers, medical conditions) and how would you manage and accommodate these?
  4. Future Plans
    Cats and Dogs can live up to 20 years.  What are your future plans?  Are you planning to travel, relocate, expand your family etc.
  1. Housing and Council Regulations
    Will the pet live indoors our outdoors? Does it require specific bedding, fencing or enclosures? The regulations for pet ownership differ between councils.  Make sure you are aware of these.
  2. Do you have permission to have a pet?
    If you are renting, do you have landlord permission?
  3. Holidays
    Who will look after your pet when you go on holidays?
  4. Your existing pets?
    Do you have any existing pets and how would they respond to a new addition to the family?
  1. Adoption Fee
    All OAAT pets are vaccinated, desexed and microchipped prior to adoption.   They will also be up to date with all worming and flea treatments.  This is all covered in the adoption fees (which generally range from $200 – $400 depending on the type and age of the animal).

  2. Ongoing costs
    Cats and Dogs can live up to 20 years.  This is 20 years of feeding, vet care, council registration, toys, training, etc.  Does this fit with your budget and finances?

  3. Unexpected Medical Care
    Although we all hope it never happens, pets can get unexpectedly sick.  How would you financially manage a medical emergency?
