THINGS TO NOTE

Keep these in mind before adopting

Renters:  

 

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:   

 

While it's our intent, to adopt locally first - due to requirements for vetting the household via home visits and introductions to other pets in the home - we have done adoptions out of the Metroplex and out of state. These are rare instances and are allowed when a dog or cat has not found a home locally after a long time - so long as the potential adopter appears to be a good fit and their references can be 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.
