OAK HILL ANIMAL RESCUE INC
August 6, 2013

We recently found a beautiful terrier/boxer mix from Oak Hill Animal Rescue. We had never heard of the organization before so we did not have any expectations about the organization. Their web site is well laid out and has lots of links to educational information related to adopting/raising dogs and cats. We went to see the dog of interest at the PetSmart in Rockwall and decided to adopt. The volunteers were very helpful and the paper-work was straight forward and not too cumbersome. They did, however, explain that they do not allow same day adoptions so we were slightly disappointed. When Betty Baker came out later with our dog to check out our house and set-up we were impressed with her wonderful way with the dog, enthusiasm for rescue animals, and tremendous knowledge of raising dogs. She had several great suggestions for training and cost effective veterinary services. And she also explained the purpose of waiting at least a day before adopting as some people will change their minds and the wait allows that to happen and avoids having a dog abandoned again. Bettye also told us about her work connecting dogs with at risk youth. Her commitment to community really is second to none.
