Finding The Perfect Pet

Over 1000 animals rehomed since 2019

Last Litter Program

The Last Litter Program Starts with You…
For some people, desexing can feel financially not possible so it’s either not done, or it’s ‘put off’.  If that’s the case with you, or someone you know,  and their cat has had kittens then let us know.  We can organise low cost desexing, or in the case of our last litter program – free desexing!   One at a Time Pet Rescue will desex Mum (and Dad if he is known) for FREE and then return them to you. The only condition being that the entire litter needs to be surrendered to One at a Time Pet Rescue once they have been weaned.  We will then make sure they are wormed, vaccinated, microchipped and desexed before being rehomed.

The idea of the program is that the cycle of unwanted breeding stops.   It’s a distressing fact, but many thousands of animals are dumped, rehomed or euthanised each year due to an oversupply of pets.  Put simply – there’s more animals than there are homes for them.  Desexing is one of the best things you can do for your pet’s happiness and long term health.   Read more  

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?
