One Step Closer Animal Rescue (O.S.C.A.R.)

'Helping you find your new best friend'

Sparta, NJ

Featured Pets


Sometimes there is a pet whose face or story just touches your heart.

Special Dogs at OSCAR Animal Rescue

Our featured dogs and cats are often with O.S.C.A.R. longer than other pets. Sometimes they have special needs and other times it just takes longer to find them the right family. So, it often costs more for their care.

Here are some deserving pets who really need forever families.
Can you open your home to one of them?

If you are not in the position to adopt a pet of your own right now, why not consider SPONSORING a dog or cat? Occasionally, we have pets with special needs who require extra vet care, medications, and special food. Your SPONSORSHIP will help us give them all the special care they need as they wait for their forever family.



Please type 'Sponsor' in the Special Instructions box. Thank you!.

THESE FEATURED PETS NEED LOVING HOMES!


Adopt Rescue Dogs and Puppies from OSCAR Animal Rescue in Sparta, NJ

Meet Star!

Breed: Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound Mix
Color: Black - with White
Age: Puppy (1 Year old)
Size: Med. 26-60 lbs
Sex: Male - neutered
Shots: Up-to-date

Look at that face! This handsome boy is about a year old. Star plays great with other dogs, but he can be possessive over what he perceives as his food/toys. We're working with Star to correct this behavior, but he needs an owner willing to be patient and continue to work with him. Because of this, for now it's best that he be the only dog in the house. This boy has a lot of love to give and we know his adopter will be handsomely rewarded with nothing buy loyalty and devotion from this sweet boy.

Please help this Lab mix find the loving home he deserves.

Meet Merlin!

Breed: Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever Mix
Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - with White
Age: Adult
Size: Large 61-100 lbs
Sex: Male - neutered
Shots: Up-to-date

Some dogs need an owner willing to work with them. Merlin is one of those dogs. We're not sure what his life was like before he came to the shelter, but he is a somewhat shy and unsure dog. He has difficulty walking on a leash and is very picky about his dog friends. We are working with him on it, but he needs an owner willing to be patient and continue training with him. He is so worth it! This gorgeous boy is 6 years old and weighs about 60 pounds.

Please help Merlin find the loving home he deserves.

Meet Persephone!

Breed: Rottweiler Mix
Color: Black - with Tan, Yellow or Fawn
Age: Adult
Size: Large 61-100 lbs
Sex: Female - Spayed

Persephone was taken in by animal control after investigating complaints by neighbors that she was being left tied up outside with no food or water. Because of this, she has shown a tendency for protecting her food which is understandable given the situation she came from. We are working with Persephone to get her better about this, so she can understand that from now on she will always have plenty of food on a regular basis. She will need an understanding owner willing to help her continue with her training. Persephone is otherwise a happy dog with a sweet demeanor and deserves a chance to have a family who can show her what a good life is like. Persephone is about 5 years old and 90 pounds.

Because of all she has gone through in her life, Persephone would be most comfortable in a home without kids, cats or other dogs.

Please help Persephone find her forever family!
