Results: 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.
Target demographics: animals in city shelters
Geographic areas served: The Dallas Metroplex
Programs: 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.

I am a dog trainer, and I have worked with Oak Hill Animal Rescue on several occasions. They work hard to make an adoption "work", and provide good advice, including recommending experts to help where there is a behavioral issue (with the dog or the people!!). I have visited their facility and attended some of their adoption events - they are committed to trying to provide a better life for the animals in their care.
