Finding The Perfect Pet

Over 1000 animals rehomed since 2019


Valley is currently in the care of OAAT Pet Rescue, after being found wandering around a rural property. 
She was very much in need of help. A vigilant family noticed she appeared to have trauma to one side of her face and contacted OAAT Pet Rescue.
Upon coming into care it was immediately noticed that she had a large wound under her chin,  and one of her eyes was very weepy. As carers touched her face they could feel the crunch of bone! But, despite her pain and discomfort she darling girl was loving and smooching. She seemed so relieved and grateful to be safe, and to have food, shelter and care.
Valley has since had surgery to wire her broken jaw and some antibiotics to keep the infections at bay while she heals.  She’s in the loving care of a OAAT foster family, where she has her very own guest room with TV.  She is in bright spirits and despite her jaw being wired, she’s managing to eat food. 
Valley is a strong littel fighter and we look forward to her eventually being able to settle into a forever home where she will have a life of happiness and love she deserves.

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?
