Finding The Perfect Pet

Over 1000 animals rehomed since 2019


Our beautiful Natalie has been in our care since June and she has come so far. She was so sick and frightened on arrival and just look at her now. A very understanding home is sought for this girl that has been through so so much. . .
So, how do you feel about befriending a free spirit?
Natalie wants nothing more than to be left alone, and have fresh food bought to her twice daily.
She will pay you back in smooches and cuddles and the loudest purr (but this may be at 6am)
She will be very happy to see you when you walk in the door after being out all day, but is not one to make demands. We feel sure she will become quite attached and interactive once she realises you have signed on as her slave for life!
Currently living with other cats and friendly dogs, but would be best suited as an only, or with a very laid back fur friend. She is happiest in a quiet spot contemplating the world.
Natalie is approximately three years old. Due to her colouring she will need to be an indoor only girl.
Desexed, microchipped and vaccinated. Natalie is in foster care in Narre Warren South

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?
