Our Rescue was created through the desire to save the lives of innocent animals. All of our members have a strong passion to save as many dogs and cats as we can, as well as a commitment to ensure great futures for all of the pets we rescue.
One Step Closer Animal Rescue, Inc. in Sparta, New Jersey, is a non-profit rescue organization that saves dogs and cats from desperate situations. We rescue pets from overcrowded shelters where animals are euthanized due to lack of space. O.S.C.A.R. cares for these pets and gives them the loving care they deserve. We ensure that all pets in our care receive the proper veterinary attention and vaccinations, and that the animals are spayed/neutered. All of O.S.C.A.R.'s dogs and cats are great animals that deserve loving homes. In addition, OSCAR helps the local community with strays, re-homing animals, intake of NJSPCA abuse cases, and TNR (trap neuter release on feral cats). We strongly believe in working with the community to benefit animals now and in the future through our outreach programs.
IMAGINE going into a shelter knowing that the majority of the animals are being put to sleep that day.
IMAGINE looking at their faces, running your hands down the cages and the dogs trying to get your attention by kissing your hand and giving paw.
IMAGINE knowing you only have space for 3 dogs and you are the only chance these dogs have before being put to sleep and breathing their last breath.
O.S.C.A.R. will continue to do everything we can to make a difference in the animalís lives that we rescue. It is beyond heart breaking to have to make these hard decisions. We take comfort in knowing we are doing everything we possibly can.
