Have the consent and knowledge of all adults living in the household to adopt a pet


Agree to consider the pet as a member of the family and provide indoor shelter


Keep these in mind before adopting



If you rent or lease your home, we require a copy of the lease which states any weight or breed restrictions for the complex/landlord and you must provide proof of pet deposit receipt from the landlord or apartment complex prior to adoption.

Out of Area Adoptions:   


Due to the requirements of screening the household via home visits and introductions to other pets in the home, we try to find forever home locally first. In rare instances out of the area adoptions are allowed when a dog or cat has not found a home locally and the potential adopter appears to be a good fit after references are verified. 


 If you are not local and wish to submit an application, it will be kept on file as a recourse if no home can be found locally.

Under-age children: 


Oak Hill Animal Rescue, Inc. reserves the right to deny any application when the age of the children in the household is inappropriate to the age or size of the pet being adopted.

Existing pets in the household


Oak Hill Animal Rescue, Inc. requires all pets in the adopting household be spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations and on monthly heartworm prevention or the application will be denied.
