Consider Which Pet is Best for You...

Is the pet shy, confident, adaptable, fearful, outgoing, laid back, independent, easily excited etc? Does it prefer to nap most of the day, or does it require regular interaction and stimulation (or in the case of a dog, daily walks)? Does the pet have have any special needs (fears, triggers, medical conditions)? How would this pet’s personality fit with the dynamic in your household and the expectations you have of your new pet?

Does the pet require an indoor or outdoor home? If indoors, what do you have in place to be sure your pet doesn’t slip out an open window or door? If an outdoor home, do you have suitable fencing and security to keep your pet safe?

What are your short and long term plans (cats and dogs can live for 20 years)?  Who will look after your pet when you go on holidays? Are you planning to travel, relocate, expand your family etc?

The regulations for pet ownership differs between councils. For example, some require cats to be contained at all times, while others require only night containment. Most councils will provide this information on their website, or you can give them a quick call.

The fee for adopting a OAAT pet is generally between $200 – $450, depending on the type and age of the pet. Being a non-profit organisation this payment goes directly towards the costs associated with the pet’s pre-adoption care and vet work (foster care, vet check, de-sexing, microchipping, vaccinations, worm and flea treatments). Once you take your pet home, you will then be responsible for their ongoing care – this includes food, bedding, annual vaccinations, vet check ups, council registration, toys, training, etc. Do your finances allow for these regular expenses?
