Compassion in Action;To show by example the simplest ways to make a difference in the lives of animals.
We built a 1600 sq ft climate controlled shelter in 2006 which doesn't make us dependent on fosters. We also purchased a church choir bus and converted it for taking the dogs to and from adoption. Since 2006 we've done over 200 adoptions a year. In 2010 two of our wheelchair bound dogs were accepted into Baylor University Medical Center's Pet Assisted Therapy Program; the first wheelchair bound dogs visiting patients who are much like themselves. It's a remarkable event everytime we go.

The Dallas Metroplex
We provide dogs to the Dallas County Juvenile Authority's PREP program, where at risk young men are taught a skill with dogs. It changes the boy's lives and we get back an obedience trained dog that's 100% easier to adopt.

Reviews for Oak Hill Animal Rescue Inc
We have (so far) fostered two dogs through OHAR. The first dog was a breeze, and we needed little help to get him adopted. The second dog was 'beautiful, we loved her, but difficult'. OHAR supported us all the way with help from a trainer to teach us how to teach her to overcome some difficult behavior issues. A great group to work with, we will work with them again.

I have volunteered with Oak Hill Animal Rescue as an adoption event volunteer, transporter, photographer, and temporary foster. I can't say enough good things about all the wonderful work the people at Oak Hill are doing to save the lives of helpless and abandoned animals in Dallas. Oak Hill takes animals from the euthanasia lists at local shelters and gives them a second chance at life. It's all run by volunteers who truly love these animals and want to relieve their painful situations.
This is such a great organization. I've worked with them for about a year and the owners and staff work tirelessly to save and help our fur friends. I've fostered 2 dogs with them so far and what a great experience it has been!! Probably one of the most rewarding experiences I've had to date. The staff are in the shelters on a daily basis saving lives. Great people!!
Oak Hill has helped our shelter rescue dogs in danger and gone above and beyond quickly and efficiently with updates sent to us with success stories on after another...This group is made up of heroes!
I love that this rescue is based on "compassion in action"! They really care about who adopts the pets in their program. They also make pet education a priority. Not everyone knows about the importance of heartworm prevention, locks on gates and microchips.
Oak Hill Animal Rescue is a wonderful organization! The animals always come first. They are the priority in every decision, change, and process. I have never been involved with an organization that truly lives its mission day in and day out. They are awesome! It is a privilege to volunteer with them!
I have fostered one puppy through Oak Hill rescue and have helped at the adoption events. They are one of the most compassionate groups I have ever volunteered with! They will move mountains to rescue as many animals as possible, including those that are injured and unlikely to make it out of the shelter otherwise!
Back in Nov of 2014, I started to help OHAR on Friday nights to set up crates for Saturday adoptions and most recently have taken over the photography work and getting the dogs posted on FB. In August a staff position at the shelter opened up, so I’ve also been helping there. I have been in awe of how wonderful all the people, volunteer and workers, are there. They all have big hearts and really go out of the way to help animals in need. I have become friends with an amazing group, both two legged and four legged. :)
I adopted a sweet wonderful little dig from oak hill about 5 months ago, they are wonderful people and whenever a spot opens in our home again I will definitely go back to them. Great rescue group
They are a fantastic organization. The animals and their needs are their top priority. I recently adopted 2 chihuahua puppies from them and could not be happier. Oak hill needs our help so much. They work such long hours all got love if the dogs. I would encourage anyone to contribute even a small amount to them. They manage to stretch each dollar to the limit so the dogs have good food, vet care and loving individual attention. Please help them to help more animals in need. Bettye, I think you are awesome! Thank you for all you do.
