Finding The Perfect Pet

Over 1000 animals rehomed since 2019


Sid came to live with his current carer before Xmas after being rescued. And, although he is very much loved, he’s searching for a home where he can be his can live his best life.  He is a friendly happy boy who adores people, cuddles walks and other dogs. He is however big , boisterous and excitable and needs someone who has the time to help him with his manners. He is not suited to childred (as he will jump and bowl them over or even  hurt them unintentionally (current career has been pulled over on a walk when over stimulated) and he is not suited to a home with cats.
He is typically stubborn and needs a family committed to ongoing training. He can shake, will sit and wait for his food, but this still needs work. He is getting better with pulling on lead and this will come with consistency and dedication. Before being rescued he spent his life in a dog run outside, and we wish that this be in his past and his new home to include him as part of the family. With more attention and training he will thrive and he will be a happier calmer boy.

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?
