I recently found a cute little puppy in our neighborhood who my boyfriend and I almost hit while he was running across the street. After searching the neighborhood and asking all around with no luck, I took him to Banfield Pet Hospital to see if he had a chip. The little guy didn't have a collar either and we found out he had no chip. I just happened to be at PetsMart/Banfield when Oakhill Animal Rescue was having an adoption event so I decided to see what they could do to help me. After speaking with one volunteer she referred me to Bettye. I quickly could tell that Bettye and the volunteers were doing this out of complete love for animals and they would take very good care of this little guy and make sure he went to a very safe and loving home. I wish I could have kept him but I already have two dogs and I travel a lot so a puppy was not in my future at the moment, however, I did want him to be safe and to find a safe and loving home. Bettye agreed to take the lil guy and they sent me an update on his progress the next morning. I will be following him on their Facebook page to see when he is adopted and how he is progressing until he finds his forever home. Whether you are a volunteer looking for a great place to volunteer or a donor looking for a great charity to support, I would HIGHLY recommend this rescue. It is clear that they care very deeply about the dogs they rescue.

I thought the process was thorough and reasonably easy. It seems they run this rescue really well and take great care to protect the animals.

My career calls for me to assist customers with a significant problem - I help them when their payroll software isn't working. To difuse their anxiety, I have a large jar labeled "Profanity for Pups." $1 is due for every cuss word I hear. Three benefit - 1. OHAR.org is supported, 2. my customers enjoy the challenge and 3. I still blush, but I know the animals are cared for. The proceeds are sent monthly - and we always add a little extra.

I received a frantic e-mail from a shelter walker at Irving Animal Services that was looking for someone to rescue a dachshund that was found dragging himself along the highway and could not use his back legs. Bettye and Jim of Oak Hill Animal Rescue came to this baby's rescue and named him Arlo. After having him evaluating and discovering that he had paralysis in his back side, they decided to get him a wheelchair to make his life easier. Our group "Gardere Cares About Animals" took up a collection at our law office and not only raised enough funds to buy Arlo the wheelchair--but also to cover the cost of his heartworm treatment (as he was also found to be heartworm positive). Arlo still lives at Oak Hill and is thriving. Betty and Jim are true angels to the service of animals far and near!
