Please complete the following survey as thoroughly and truthfully as you can. Only applicants who have completed this survey and been approved may meet our animals.

At the end of this survey you will be asked to provide photos of your current fencing and sheltered areas. PLEASE NOTE this is not required if you are adopting a cat from us, as the expectation is that the cat will remain in your home while not supervised. Remember we are looking for a yard that will keep the dog happy, not a palace! We look for order and a relaxed environment, nothing too clean, nothing too dirty. 

If the dog will sleep outside please also show us any existing covered areas you may have which might be a good place for a bed/kennel. Outside areas showing shelter from bad weather etc are also important to include, even if your dog will sleep inside at night. Again please note this is for dogs/puppies only, not cats.

Once you submit your application an OTC member will endeavour to respond within 48hrs - however if you do not hear back from us please feel free to contact us for an update. Contact is generally via email or text. Please remember we are all volunteers and sometimes we get swamped with rescue work :) you are always welcome to follow up with us however we do ask for patience. Contact details for follow ups:
