Finding The Perfect Pet

Over 1000 animals rehomed since 2019

Abraham

Abraham Bob Cat (6yrs) came to us as a frightened boy who had certainly been through the wars. On arrival his beautiful fluffy tail was on a terrible angle and was broken in many places so had to be amputated. He had a few broken teeth, too, that needed removal. Once out of pain this boy has truly grown into a charming, gentle man who enjoys being around his people. He is FIV positive so must be an indoor boy or a home with an enclosure would be an advantage.

Tips for Finding the Perfect Match

Cats and Dogs can live up to 20 years, so it’s really important that you select a pet that is going to fit with your personality, household dynamics, and future plans. 

Lifestyle Compatability

Are you looking for a pet that is full of energy and playful? Or would you prefer a pet that is content to hang with you around the house all day, and nap on your lap while you watch TV or read a book?

Would you have the time and calm environment needed to nurture a shy, or fearful pet and help build back their confidence and zest for life? Or, would you prefer a pet that is outgoing or independent and that would slot perfectly into a busy home? It’s also important to consider the personality and temperament of any existing pets. How will they respond to a new addition to the family, and how will you manage the integration?

Housing and Council Regulations

The regulations for pet ownership differ between councils, this includes the requirement for registration, curfews for cats, and on/off leash walking for dogs. These are often easily found on each council website.

if you are renting, it’s vital that you consult with your landlord and secure their permission before applying for adoption.

Costs associated with owning a pet

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 – $900 depending on the type and age of the animal).
