Thank you to Selective Insurance and Pass It Along!
Nov. 9, 2017: With the assistance of Pass It Along in Sparta, Selective Insurance did a VOLUNTEER DAY at the shelter. They did a supply collection before and dropped off donations. Selective employees spent about 5 hours at our shelter helping to clean and away the supplies. The volunteers got more then half the dogs out for walks (it was cold today so we were limited to dogs that could handle it).
We are so appreciative of the help from people in our community!

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 the O.S.C.A.R. and our local kids!

KIDS - Here is a great way that you can help O.S.C.A.R.! Collect change, then give us a call. We'll arrange for you to come down and have a personal tour of our new shelter. You'll get to see the dogs and cats you are helping.
"Penelope asked for supplies for OSCAR for her birthday instead of presents."
Happy Birthday, Penelope. Thank you so much for your generosity! The OSCAR dogs and cats thank you, too!
