Finding The Perfect Pet

Over 1000 animals rehomed since 2019


Syd has not had it easy in life. At 12 years old, she needs a home to live out the rest of her days in comfort and happiness.
Syd loves other cats and enjoys playing with the her foster siblings. Due to her past Syd is still quite skeptical of humans and any patting or physical touch needs to be entirely on her terms. She is sweet and affectionate but cannot yet trust that you may not change your mind about being kind to her. She will not tolerate being picked up. She likes routine and consistency and enjoys her own space. For these reasons she will need to go to a quiet, adult only home with other relaxed cats for siblings.
Sydney has a medical condition with her left eye that she will have for life. At this stage it does not bother her at all however it may require ongoing treatment in the future.
Sydney is very sweet and shy and just needs a family who can understand her needs and give her the affection and love she has always deserved.

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?
