I wanted a dog for quite some time, but it took a while to convince my husband to get one. We are both particular so we had to compromise on what we were looking for. Anytime I saw an adoption some where I would look for "the one" to bring home. We checked out Petsmart one day and there was Oak Hill Animal Rescue where I met Bettye and her team. Maple was also there - the pup for us, a German Shepherd mix. I didn't fill out the application that day, but did over the weekend and had it on standby. Unfortunately, we were going out of town the following week so we didn't think it was a good time to get a puppy. A month later, after thinking Maple was long gone, I found her online through Petfinder. I immediately called Oak Hill to make sure she was actually still adoptable and Bettye assured me she was. She told me anything they post on Petfinder is always up to date. I met with Bettye that Saturday at Petsmart, turned in my application, and we set a time for our home visit. Prior to our home visit, Maple had some wounds on her back from her litter mates. Bettye took great care of her while she was still at the rescue shelter and was actually going to keep her longer because she didn't want to give a puppy away in the condition she was in. I loved that Bettye cared so much about Maple to want to keep her until she was all better so that we didn't have to worry about her. I also love the fact that they do home visits because they really are concerned about where the animals are going. Working with Bettye and Oak Hill has been a pleasure. They made the process very easy. AND...we just love our Maple! I'm so glad she was still there :-)
