During this unsettling time of the Coronavirus, we had to cancel many of our public Pet Adoption Events. There are always many pets needing their forever homes. Our shelter will still be an open for 'Meet & Greet' Pet Adoptions. PLEASE KNOW... an approved application is required first. A 'Meet & Greet' must be scheduled by the OSCAR Office Staff. All family members attending must be free of symptoms.
Something else to know... Pet adoption fees help to support our Rescue. All of the pets under our care continue to need food, supplies, and veterinary care. Please consider making a donation to help OSCAR continue to provide the best care to our dogs and cats. OSCAR Animal Rescue PO Box 248 Sparta, NJ 07871. Thank you.
Kids Helping O.S.C.A.R.
We realize how important it is for kids to learn how to help animals and that there are animals in need in their community. We have different ways to help, all of which benefit the rescue. Kids learn the value of setting goals and feeling like they are making a difference.
Be sure to visit our page Kids Helping O.S.C.A.R. to read more about O.S.C.A.R. and our local kids!
