Finding the Right Pet
Owning a pet is a fabulous and rewarding experience. Every animal has different needs, so how can you make sure you are ready for a new addition to your family and that you choose the right one for you?
It might be tempting if you see an animal looking longingly at you but think about whether you are really ready for a long term commitment. Your new pet could live for anything from 2 years to 20 or more and that impulse to provide a home might not seem like a good idea further down the line. Also, if you have not done your research, you will not know anything about the pet’s history and any health or behavioural problems that they come with. Be sure to talk it though with all of your family and friends then contact the Sanctuary.
If you find yourself rechecking the website for our new arrivals. Make your life easier by joining OAS Rehoming and receive a fortnightly newsletter containing each of our new animal arrivals who are fit and ready to start looking for their new home. Help the residents by telling a friend about OAS Rehoming.
The OAS staff work daily with the animals, getting to understand all the little differences between them and what makes them so special. Although no two dogs are exactly the same OAS staff rate them to the best of their ability and experience.
Every animal has a personality that can vary depending on its upbringing and life experiences. Some animals will have a high compatiblity with almost everyone and other animals, while other animals will need a more experienced owner who has time to train to resolve any apparent issues. Our staff are always happy to answer any questions that you may have on the animals in more detail. Contact us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or phone the Sanctuary directly on 01865 890239.
NOTE: If the staff at OAS believe that the animal you have chosen is not best suited to your needs, they will do all they can to help you find a more suited companion.
