When you sponsor an animal from Oscar Animal Rescue, you are creating a unique bond.

We understand that not everyone can adopt; that's why sponsoring an animal is a popular alternative to adoption. Our Animal Sponsorship Program lets you play an important role in helping support your favorite dog/cat. Looking for a gift that�s unusual and unconventional? Animal Sponsorships make great gifts, and you�ll never have to worry about housebreaking them!

There is absolutely no minimum or maximum on sponsors for an OSCAR dog/cat. Also, remember that each gift to our program is TAX DEDUCTIBLE! You can donate any amount, big or small, to their care, which includes check-up vet visit, basic shots, food and preventatives.

In order to sponsor a pet, you can mail a check, or make a donation through our website. Please include the animal�s name that you are sponsoring along with your check or in an email to OSCARRescue@yahoo.com if you donate through PayPal.



In Memorial/In Honor

Once you make a donation in memorial of someone who passed, we send a sympathy card to the family for their loss. We also send a donation letter to you for the donation.

If you'd like to mail a check, please enclose a note indicating the name of the deceased or honoree, the name and the address of the person you wish us to contact concerning the donation, and who it is from. We will send out a tribute card to the person you�ve indicated. Please send your check to: Oscar Animal Rescue, P.O. Box 248, Sparta, NJ 07871.

**If you are making a donation via PayPal or our Donation Link, please include the same information above to us in an email to OSCARRescue@yahoo.com so we can properly send our card.



Planned Giving

You can make a gift to One Step Closer Animal Rescue, Inc. in your Will, or Living Trust. A Will can name One Step Closer Animal Rescue, Inc. as a direct beneficiary for a specific sum of money or a specific asset (such as shares of stock) or real estate.

The gift to One Step Closer Animal Rescue, Inc. can be an outright gift or One Step Closer Animal Rescue, Inc. can be named as a residuary beneficiary (One Step Closer Animal Rescue, Inc. would receive the balance of a trust after specific amounts have been paid to other beneficiaries). You can add One Step Closer Animal Rescue, Inc. to your existing Will through a codicil, without rewriting your Will.
