"Hi Everyone at O.S.C.A.R, I wanted to send an update for our sweet boy Marty! We adopted him at the end of June this year. He was a liter of Coonhound Mixes you had gotten. I would like to let everyone know how happy he is in his forever home. He has finally met the whole family including his BIG BROTHER, who I've included a in a photo with Marty. His name is Onyx another Coonhound mix. They had so much fun with each other.

In closing, we just adore Marty and his energy and love. He is always giving us big hugs and wagging his tail and jumping around and always looking to play. He loves running around his big backyard and going on long walks around his neighborhood and at various parks around town. He looks tracking all different types of animals especially deer. He is a blast and truly our best friend. He loves my 7 year old daughter and sleeps along side her every night.

We would like to thank O.S.C.A.R for allowing us to be Marty's forever family. We love him so much and are honored to be his family. Thank you again!!!!!!!"

We wanted to give you a little update on Luna Belle (formerly known as just Luna). We wrapped up our summer with a vacation to our favorite place, Ocean City NJ.

Luna Belle LOVED the beach! A little frightened of the ocean at first, but she soon learned to love it. We also discovered that Luna Belle loves to go for bike rides! All eyes were on Luna Belle as we rode around town.

Luna Belle and her brother Bennie came to breakfast with us on the pet friendly patio at The Chatterbox, they both enjoyed a nice cold ice-pup. Then they got to spend some time at the Ocean City Coffee Shop. We had a ton of fun! Luna Belle is too cute, we just had to share these pictures with you.

Thank you again for all that you do!

P.S. Luna Belle had her first grooming, she looks like a little white schnauzer now."

Just a note to say Teddy Rex is doing so well. He is a smart, obedient, friendly fur baby and we already love him so much. He is learning to run next to me for short distances on his walk. He sleeps in a soft crate all night in our bedroom right next to our beagle, and somehow he has made frenemies with her! It's amazing how happy and well-adjusted he is, and he is managing to pep up the beagle too. Thank you so much."

August 2017: Captain

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hello! It feels like just yesterday we picked Captain up, but today marks 6 months of us having him!

He settled in nicely and made our house his home very quickly. He is trained to ring a bell when he has to go outside! (We couldn't be prouder of him for that). He loves my parents two dogs and my husband's sisters dog, he rolls over for her and becomes such a mush when they are together. His favorite things to do are protecting the house from the squirrels, being held, sitting like a human, and being chased around the house. He also loves wearing jackets or shirts. He even helped us train for our first 5k! We learned he hates fireworks (but loves his thunder shirt) and loud noises.

For Christmas (or his 'got you day') we already decided we are going to do a DNA test on him to see exactly what he is. We really think he has beagle in him somehow and want to see if we are right. We also want to know what he is to see if there are any diseases or issues associated with the breed so we can start doing preventative measures if there are any.

I'll send another update soon! Thank you so much for trusting us to be suitable parents for Captain. We can't even picture our home without him in it anymore (really since the night we brought him home we couldn't picture how it was the day before) and his Mommy and Daddy love him dearly."

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hi....just giving you a 6 month of age update on Fenway.

He is doing fantastic....he is so super loveable and sweet.....loves every human or animal he gets to meet. He's been completely trained now for several months, has settled in to a nice routine (I'm home a couple of days a week and on the other days he has a young girl dog walker that he loves.). He luvs his long walks and running around in backyard with the ball or occasionally a neighbor's dog, and relaxing with me on the bed watching tv (luvs the dog whisperer on Saturday mornings!).

Physically, he's so handsome and healthy! People constantly say he is the most handsome dog they have ever seen . He's up to about the mid 40's in weight (approximately....we haven't been to the vet in a month), but is not at all fat.....he's very strong....gets lots of exercise!

Overall, we couldn't be happier!! (and I'm sure he'd tell you the sane if he could cause he is treated like a "King"! "

Celebrating Cooper's 6th month gotcha day!

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hi OSCAR! We wanted to update you on how Cooper has been since we brought him home! His 6th month gotcha day is today! Since the second we got him home he was a snuggler and still is, he LOVES playing with toys and gets new ones each month with his bark box subscription. He loves being outside and couldnt get enough of the snow over the winter, his picture even made the paper ! He also just learned how to swim recently too! He is wonderful with kids and other dogs, his best friend is Rover an OSCAR alumni, and has picked up on everything we trained him with ease. He is the happiest, sweetest pup and we couldnt love him more if we tried. Thank you for all that you do!"

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

Hi!!

My name is April!! I am sorry I have not reached out for a bit, but I was taking my time adjusting to my new home and family!! I love it here!!! I am being loved and cared for like a good dog should!!!! I have a brother and sister that love to play with me!!! I also have a sister that is a cat!! She is a great to snuggle with at night with my owner!!

My owner is great!! I love her so much!! She gives me belly rubs, treats and the loving I deserve!! She works really hard not only at her job, but with school also!! She always tells me, "I work hard so you and Scruffy (my sister that's a cat) have a better life!" I am starting my training to be a service dog for my owner next week starting with Basic Obedience Training.

Some of the things I love do is play with my doggy brother and sister, snuggling with owner and family members, going to the dog park to run, going on plenty of walks, and going for car rides. I promise that I will reach out again very soon!!!

Love,
April

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hello, I am just writing with an update about our incredible joys Veruca and Sawyer.They are no longer the 4 and 5 lb pups we adopted a year and a half ago! LOL now they are 14 and 16 lbs. Both girls are very health and spoiled rotten! They receive new toys monthly ( one each which doesnt matter because they both only want the toy the other is playing with ) and are never without there bully sticks.

As far as personality these two dogs are the furthest from one another that I ever thought possible. Soy is adventurous and curious and Rouk is cautious and calculating. Guess together they make a good team. Soy is very stubborn at times and only likes things on her terms where as Rouk is eager to please! LOL they are the cutest ever. We love them so much and they have brought such joy into our lives!

Just wanted to say Thank you again for rescuing these sweethearts and for the time you and your volunteers take to see that these and other animals find good homes and get the lives they deserve. I work in Dover NJ now and was wondering if there is anything you guys are in need of? Thank you again for everything you have done!"

Yesterday was our 3 year Gotcha Date that you brought this little love into our lives. Theres not much that I can tell you from last year except that he has our hearts through & through.

Ive included a few pictures from this past year. He loves to play at the Pet Spa, Vernon Dog Park or his girlfriend Baileys house. He finds riding in the car to the Recycling Center one of his favorite things to do and did you know the drive in window at the bank is a treat dispenser? He thinks the ATM machine is too and is disappointed when theres no treats for him. For Halloween last year he was the Amazon lion and he truly believes in Santa Paws. because he gets news collars, babies and treats!!

Thank you OSCAR for blessing our lives with this golden love, we are very fortunate!!!"

"I had a few minutes, so I thought I'd give you an update on Kase (Fenway). He is doing so well....so happy, so smart and so sweet. He is just the best Lil guy, and I love him to death.

It's been approximately 5 weeks since I adopted him. He is getting big so fast! He has gone from 17 lbs to 30Lbs! The vet says he is perfect though....not getting fat...just big! Lol!

He loves his long walks and his daily hour run around in the backyard with the balls or the two neighbor dogs. In the pic of him in the seat by the window (his favorite spot), you can see how he likes to know if his dog friends are out back....he hates to miss any of the action! He also loves going out on the boat and is perfectly behaved doing so...just enjoying the wind in his hair and the overall adventure. I take him with me almost anywhere I go, as he is so happy to meet other people or animals....he has yet to meet anyone he doesn't like! We are even planning a road trip up to see Ma and to meet some more of the family and a Yorkie and Morkie that my sister has.

Overall, I don't think he or I could be happier with each other."

"Hi... U guys asked for occasional pics n updates on Kase.... It's been 11 days since his adoption. He is so sweet and incredibly smart. He had his initial vet appointment last week n they adored him .. called him the sweetest puppy they have had in there in recent memory...

He loves his long walks and running around playing fetch with his ball in the back yard. It really tires him out and he sleeps like a baby over night. His absolute favorite thing is to lounge on the couch or bed early in the morning or just before bed, when he is just a cuddle buddy who can't get enough of having his belly rubbed. He really is a sweet lil boy! He's up to 18 lbs n growing quickly!!!! Couldn't ask for a better Lil buddy!!!!

Thanks again"

We knew the second we saw her that she was meant to come home with us. We have named her Maggie and she is doing great! She loved exploring her new yard and house, and she even slept through the night (even though I didn't because I was worried about her!). She is such a wonderful puppy and we couldn't be more in love! Here are some pictures. Thank you so much for helping us find our new family member!"

(Penelope)

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hi OSCAR: Hope you and your doggy charges are doing well, and they all soon find new homes. You are to be commended and deserve much thanks and praise for your dedication to these furry friends. THANK YOU Sincerely!

Molly is doing very well. She still needs some training, but she's doing great really. It's just been one month (and one day) since Molly became a family member. Hoo Ray :-) She is getting used to aĺl of our routines and is responding more readily to what we ask of her. She's a very sweet little dog. Loves everyone! And, she is very strong ! This little critter, once focused on a squirrel or bird, stays focused and all other thoughts disappear. That's when she shows her strength. We have ALL been tested. However, Molly is great, and we all love this little girl. Every inch of her body wags when the guys come home. She certainly shows her love .... and her belly begs for more lovin'. Who can resist?

I've attached a couple pictures. Molly's favorite way to relax is with a chew, and with her hind quarters laying flat on the floor. Her back like a pancake to the floor and her knees pointing outward. Very cute! And comical!

I'm closing now, but wanted you to know how much we all enjoy our new family member. She's fun - and funny. She always gives me a chuckle. Molly is settling in nicely. Just what I hoped for. Yea! I'm considering buying into some training for her. Will see. She is smart .... She's also eager to please. So sweet is our Molly.

This name is a nod to her former home and, as we found out, a nod to the fact that the women of Sparta were held in high esteem.

From Wikipedia: "Political, social, and economic equality. Spartan women, of the citizenry class, enjoyed a status, power, and respect that was unknown in the rest of the classical world."

Thanks again for everything."

Ricky loves to sit up and beg for everything and anything. If I say "outside" he spins around 3 or 5 times before running to the door. I still get a kick out of it.

Thanks for saving my pups. Thank you for all the lives you have brought joy to by being there."

(Milo)

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hi OSCAR volunteers,

Just wanted to send you some photos of Milo in his new home. For starters, he has a new name: Trip, as in Trip Hazard, because he LOVES to get underfoot. His is very fast and flexible so it is amazing how many ways he can squeeze himself between your legs. He's also a "trip" because he's really funny and quite the spitfire, zipping around the house and garden .. and since he quickly took to answering to that name, so Trip it is.

Trip is proving to be quite the little collector of all the dog toys, and one of his favorites is the green alligator you sent home with him. He uses it as a pillow and carries it from bed to crate and back again.

He is getting along well with his new sister dog, with only a few minor and not-unexpected scuffles as they get to know one another and learn each others boundaries. Trip is also adapting to our family routine, learning that daytime is the time to be active and nightime is the time for everyone to sleep.

Below are some photos of Trip here in PA. As you can see from first photo, he loves his toys - see the green Gator that you sent home with him. In the second photo, he is making himself quite at home, as he's squeezed and snuggled in beside Dad while Dad is enjoying a late dinner in front of the tv. He is certainly a love and is happiest when he's close to his people. We're delighted to oblige!

Thank you for rescuing Trip and helping him find a new home with us."

February 2017: Abbey
(Corey)

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hello O.S.C.A.R,

We would like to thank you for giving us the most beautiful, perfect dog in the world! Her name was Corey when we adopted her in February 2013, but we renamed her Abbey. She has been with us for a long time, and has really become a true member of the family. She is a very good girl; barks seldom, rarely gets into trouble, gives lots of love, and likes to cuddle. She likes to play fetch too, only a few times though: she is quite mellow! But she is perfect temperment for our lifestyle.

Abbey, unlike most dogs, gets the run of the house when we are out with her best friend and partner in crime, our 3-year-old white cat. She makes everywhere her space from the bed to the couches, but we don't mind. She enjoys our yard as well, and occasionally goes for a swim in the summer in our pool! She loves people as well, always friendly to whoever she meets (including other dogs) and does not hesitate to let you know when she wishes to be petted with a pat of the paw!

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and Abbey would like to say thank you as well for the excellent care you gave her. We attached some pictures of her so you could see what a beautiful companion she has become. Again, thank you so much for Abbey and the work you do!"

It�s already been 21 days since we brought Gemini home! She is a loving, curious, smart pup. She can be a handful at times for our dog Lizzy, who surely needs her space, but Lizzy is becoming a good �mommy� to her.

I hope Juno�s sisters Cap (was in foster, did she find a home yet?) and Sagittarious found, or are finding loving homes like our Juno did.

Can you post the attached pics on your website for us? "

He really loves hanging out with us, going for car and atv rides and walks. Again, thank you for taking such good care of him, he is great."

(Simon)

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hi, OSCAR,

"Simon" is doing very good in his new home. We renamed him "Norman" which he quickly responded to. He is excellent with our other two dogs, "Max" and "Spanky". Norman and Max love to wrestle, usually in our living room. Norman also made friends with our cat, "Grey".

Norman loves to cuddle and play tug of war with his new toys. He has an extremely loud bark and loves to tease Max into wrestling matches. He loves our 1/4 acre fenced in back yard, but he isn't a fan of the cold. He loves to run as fast as his stubby legs will carry him.

We determined he is a cross between a Bassett Hound and a Pug. They are called "Bassuggs" and are a so called designer breed.

He is a great dog and fits in very well. We really appreciate your giving us the opportunity to adopt him. Thank you! Here are some pics of him and his new brothers."

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Good morning!

Hooper is doing wonderful. We had a great first Christmas Eve together and he received more gifts then everyone else in the rest of my family�.combined. It�s hard to believe he will be eight months old soon.

He also proved his weight in gold recently. On Christmas day my mother went to Church. She pulled back in the garage and I wasn�t paying any attention. Hooper never usually pays any attention when someone comes in the garage either but this day he ran to the door barking his head off (he also seldom barks). My mother was in her car having a medical emergency. I got her inside and put a bunch of blankets on her (then called 911). She was freezing cold and had a temperature of 103.4. Hooper climbed on top of her and did his best to keep her warm. Mom is hanging in there, still has a bit of recovery to go but is doing much better. I�ve been watching Hooper ever since and he hasn�t even looked up when a car comes in the garage. It�s amazing how he sensed something. If he hadn�t let me know she was in trouble I have no idea when I would have found her.

Rescues truly are the greatest!"

"Hello,

Here is a quick update on Hamlin (we call him Dak). He and our other dog (Shadow) are adjusting. Dak and Shadow play a lot together quite a lot. He loves his walks and will go as far as we can go. He seems to love being outside and really enjoyed the snow. His training is going really well. He already has mastered; sit, down, paw, up, stay and come. We are working on a new one, bow (that's where a dog gets into his play stance), but that one is challenging, so it will take some time.

The one thing we noticed is he seems to love the woods. He cries when he can't reach the woods or he sees the woods from the car. I suspect he spent a lot of times in the woods in Kentucky. We have added some pics and hope you enjoy them.

Thanks!"

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Many thanks for hosting the Santa pics (last week). Love them! Mattie girl is fitting right in, and we�re really enjoying her. Woody and Mattie quickly bonded and attached is a picture post hiking. I wanted to take a few months break from my marathon swimming training so I�ve been doing long walks, jogs, hikes and Woody & Mattie are my training buddies. They go bananas as soon as I put my gear on as they know their hiking harnesses are next to come. They pace along great and are wonderful on their leashes together.

Mattie has been great with the cats and for some reason thinks she needs to take charge of our oldest (16) and tiniest cat, Gracie. Our large cat often bullies and we think Mattie realized this because she intercepted Whitey chasing Gracie a few times and since then Mattie herds Gracie and then lays on the bed for hours just staring at her. She is very focused but doesn�t try to harm her or even touch her � just shadow her as her protector. Mattie continues to get more fit week by week and she is so full of energy and ready to play. Woody is pooped but loves it!"

Mattie (on left) with new friend Woody

"Mattie (we are keeping her name) is adjusting very well. She�s having a hoot of a time with Woody and her personality quickly came out. I fixed her a really fluffy bed next to my bed. She stayed in it for approximately 10 seconds. Before I even had the lights, out she was on the bed snuggling on the pillow and didn�t move until morning.

Mattie becomes more and more energetic each day, so I think that is a good sign she is feeling at home and accepting of us. I have failed yet again to get a dog to sleep in a dog bed at night. lol. However, I have proven that no matter how many dog beds one has in a home, there is nothing like sleeping on the bed with your peoples. She plops herself on my pillow and wraps herself around my head and neck. It�s a scene, but pretty funny. This morning we woke to the two dogs AND 3 cats on the bed with us. I�m thankful for king size beds.

Mattie�s first hiking adventure is this weekend. We�re going to our cottage on Seneca Lake NY and introduce her to waterfalls, hiking and the cottage. My hope is to tire them out hiking so they both sit nicely on the dock so I can get a xmas card picture with the stunning scenery in the background. If successful, we�ll send a picture to post."

We thought you might enjoy this Howl-o-ween pic of Reno, our little Ewok - I could hardly believe it, but he not only willingly stepped into the costume, he sat perfectly still and let me take the pictures. What a ham.

We wanted you to have an Up-Date on Smokey! We have had so much enjoyment from watching him come out of his shell, and become such a Happy / Fun little guy. He is very excited, each morning, when he wakes up, and has responded well to his arthritis med's, and good nourishment (and good Love) too. He has become so "alert" too, as you can see in these videos and photos! Smokey has found his place, in our "pack". He does spend a lot of his time with our Golden Retriever "Noaa". And, we have to add, that he has made us feel so good too. Hope all is going well at OSCAR!

My horses, one in particular, LOVE him but he�s not so sure about them yet. We�re taking baby steps on that introduction :) He already knows sit, lay down, shake and come. With his temperament and intelligence I think he will make a GREAT therapy dog someday.

I can�t thank you enough for getting us together. He�s made my life so much happier, even in just the five days he�s been here. I can�t wait to see what the future holds."

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hi O.S.C.A.R friends!

I have been wanting to email you some awesome new pictures of Trooper Sarge. We have starting calling him just Trooper or Troopie. :) He has been professionally groomed three times and he is super soft. He looks great! He actually has 2 doggie beds or the couch where he can hang out during the day. He has his favorite toy "rat" that is actually a cat toy that are cats don't play with but he loves and carries it around.

He has surprised us by playing fetch with his tennis balls. He loves when we roll them down the hallway and he wags his tail like crazy and chases the ball. He actually brings it back! It's really cute, it appears he has never really been played with in his previous life. He also has learned all about raw hide bones (I get them from the vet, the are highly digestible and safe.)

Our little guy is super tough and not acting any different with all the (old age related) vet visits and health issues. :) He loves us very much and follows me around everywhere, sometimes we call him "Velcro". I am so happy we rescued him! He truly is loving his life. Thank-you for saving him from doggie death row so he is able to get the best possible senior life in NJ. :)

Please enjoy these pics!

"Hi!

I thought you might like an update on Emma! She has been with me just over 6 months now and has adjusted wonderfully! She is definitely the alpha dog and bosses us all around! Especially her brother Charlie who is so submissive with her! She has learned many things since she has been here such as how to open the front door (thankfully we have an enclosed front porch that stays locked) and how to open the baby gates. She talks all day long and she uses her paws like they are hands! I have never seen a dog do that before so she is teaching me a lot! They say old dogs can't learn new tricks but this one still has the personality of a puppy! She even loves to jump on her hind legs and dance! She has made many friends in the neighborhood although she seems a bit nervous around new men. She is also a huge hit at the groomers and they tell me she behaves like a perfect lady!"

Our sweet Apollo became a 'Foster Fail'. He is the sweetest boy in his golden years. All Apollo needed was a loving home and family and the freedom to be himself. Napping all day is his favorite activity, with an occasional run when he is feeling stronger. We are proud and honored to be fosters for OSCAR. Such a wonderful experience to give all these sweet animals a second chance at a wonderful life. Again, thank you for taking a chance on Apollo when everyone else looked away. He is the greatest addition to our family. We love you.

Thank you for giving OSCAR followers the chance to see and know how Apollo is doing."

He enjoyed his first really big walk this morning and hopefully if it does not rain we will two more into today!

My Mommy loves it when I lie on her feet. I keep her nice and warm. Being a Great Pyrenees, I take my job very seriously. I make sure that my humans are safe from any dangers. I keep watch over everyone and everything!!!!

Please keep up the great work you do!!!!

Forever thankful,

July 2016: Lila Bean

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"A year ago today I was headed to Kohl's with my mom to get some desperately needed socks and on the way we saw an OSCAR pet adoption event. I asked my mom if we could just look and she told me, "Don't fall in love!"

Before the car was even in park I was running towards a sea of puppies not even realizing that I was crying hysterically. Someone handed me this sweet girl to console me, my mom snapped a shot of me holding her and sobbing and I haven't let go since.

I took the picture on the right today and couldn't believe how much she... well both of us have grown. First of all, the trip to Kohl's was pointless because she's destroyed every pair of socks I own, but I can't get over how much happier I look now. Aside from the fact that I'm sobbing in the first picture, I was in a very bad place. I was terrified of losing my Colby dog who was turning 15. I knew Lila could never replace Colby and got her as a friend for him. She made his last few months so much happier and I can never thank her enough for that.

When she could no longer bring joy to Colby's life, she worked on me living mine without him. Lila was the one who got me through losing my first love by cuddling with me when all I wanted to do was lay in bed and sob and listening to me when I talked out loud like a crazy person while cleaning every inch of the house to avoid dealing with my grieving. She is the one I think of when I see I only have twenty minutes left of work and greets me at the door with the energy of a family who has just won a minivan on Family Feud. This year has flown by and I can't wait for so many more with my little Lila Bean!"

HI OSCAR!

I wanted to let you know that I am loving my forever home. Alum Pierce came up from Florida for a visit and we got to meet and hang out together. We had a great time running and playing in the fenced-in yard at Pierce�s rental house which is right up the street from my house. He�s going to be here for 4 weeks so I will get to spend lots of time with him.

Thanks for all you do. We are the happiest guys ever! #lifeisreallyreallygood

Just wanted to send you the latest photos of Charlotte.

Tomorrow marks three years since she came to live with us! It's hard to believe it's already been so long. She is a great dog, extremely loving, quite attached both to us and her best friend Murray. She loves going on walks, chewing on her bones (which she carries everywhere) and getting into trouble rolling in awful smelling things in the backyard. They go to my parents with us each week and hang out with their two Brittanys.

We love her so much and are grateful. To you all for the work you do and for choosing us to be her "mom and dad."

"Hi everyone at Oscar:

Two years ago you brought Riley to live with us. He was a big bundle of energy with no manners. We questioned ourselves many times if it was a good idea to bring a third dog in our home as he tested every last set of patience that we had.

Today, he is the MOST loving, respectful gentle dog who has so much love to give. He receives a ton of love as well.

Riley loves to go to the dog park with his brother Tully and sister Bella. He is also smitten with his girlfriend Bailey, they have scheduled play dates at daycare.

He is a lot of fun to play with and LOVE having him and his golden personality in our family. Thank you OSCAR for choosing us to place Riley in his forever home."

Happy Second Adoption Anniversary, Maggie!

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Ever since we adopted Maggie (Victoria) 7/1/14, I�ve hoped that her litter-mates also found their way to great homes. Maggie is the best dog we�ve ever had, and we�ve been blessed to have had some great dogs. I think often of her litter-mates and hope they are in loving families, too. In scrolling through the photos (on Happy Tails) I was so excited to see Brandi. I knew that she had to have been Maggie�s sister! Further down in the scroll in another photo it mentioned Brandi was named Vanessa when she was adopted. They are sisters! It was a joy to see Brandi in a loving home. I hope the other dogs are also. Since we�re coming up on the Second Anniversary of their adoptions here�s a current photo of Maggie.

Happy Anniversary, Maggie! And Happy Anniversary, Brandi!"

She loves her new mom and follows her around. She has a big yard to run in, is eating well and enjoying her walks and yard exercise every day. Lily is very smart and watches everything, every bird, chipmunk, squirrel. She�s seen bears and deer. She�s a good watch dog - she barks a few times at 'stranger danger' then stops. She comes when you call her name. Lily is a great dog and we love her so much and it�s been only 5 days.

We have been looking for months for a dog like Lily so thanks for letting Lily become a part of our lives. With much joy and happiness..."

Everyone loved Rudy and our new dog is just the same. He has not left my side since Thursday, except for when I had meetings outside the house. I put his sleeping bed right next to our bed and he laid down and stayed there all night right next to our bed.

Today, our two daughters brought over their dogs. They are younger than Rudy, but the tails were all waging and they spent the day together. They got along great. Here is a picture from Friday evening."

Our visits to the vet have been interesting and we are getting used to the car rides. Thank you for bring such joy and happiness to our family.

Love,

He unfortunately lost his sister (our dog Luna) last year but we have since rescued Stanley and they love each other. I've included some pictures below.

She has settled into our home beautifully and has really seamlessly become a member of the family. After the first night of letting us know she had no intention of sleeping on her own she has slept snuggled in with our daughter. She follows our son everywhere and he adores her. I woke up this morning and she rolled over and gave me her belly for the first time.

Just want to say thank you for all you do. We are the ones who are blessed."

(Steve, adopted November 2013)

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Dear OSCAR,

Steve was renamed Presley by a unanimous vote by my 6 grandchildren, I really wanted Maliki. Presley is just about the best thing that has ever happened. Everyone thinks they have the perfect dog but that's not true, I have him. He is feisty, stubborn, has backed down a Doberman and given the slightest chance he will take off. He rules the neighborhood.

He will make you laugh when he kicks those 5" back legs and does what he thinks is a growl. He is not happy unless he is outside and he is impossible to keep clean because he enjoys every moment outside. He is all boy.

Then there is the other Presley. One who will stand and cry when a passing stranger doesn't say hello to him. He is off the charts friendly and is loved by all he meets. Inside he is my little man, so, so good and loving and when he presses up against me at night I know my daughter is right when she says, "I wonder who saved who."

I really wish everyone knew the joy and love a dog can bring. There is no doubt in my mind that the dogs from shelters and rescue groups are the the most wonderful of all. Thank you!"

He enjoys playing in the snow, rain and mud but also loves sprawling out on the couch to take a snooze. He is so friendly with all the neighborhood dogs and sits patiently for all of their humans to pet him. We can't wait to see the type of dog our little man grows into!"

"Hi everybody! Emma has been home with me now for a little more than a week and is fitting in wonderfully! She was a bit shy the first day or so which is understandable, but now she loves to run and play and talk all day! While I am at work she stays home with my grandmother and Charlie (my cockapoo). She sits in my grandmother's lap the whole time and my grandmother absolutely loves that! She has become very vocal and "talks" to us all the time. She has no fear of any of the other dogs in the neighborhood big or small which is great because they all get to play together on the weekends! We absolutely love her! Thank your for saving her life and not giving up on finding homes for seniors! In the attached pictures you will see her cuddling with Grandma and laying in bed with me and her brother."

He gets along extremely well with our daughter who is now 2 1/2 and they are connected at the hip. I have added some pictures for you to see how he is with her.

Thought I�d give you a quick update on Kenny. He�s doing great � couldn�t ask for a better behaved puppy. Tug of war is his favorite game, and all games turn into tug of war. Can�t seem to get him to understand we can�t play fetch if you won�t let go of the ball� but we�ll get there. He seems to enjoy being photographed (he�s such a ham), absolutely loves the snow, and came through his surgery (neuter) just fine. He did not care for the �cone of shame� and clearly let us know his dissatisfaction, as you will see in the attached pic! He was NOT a happy camper! We did get him the inflatable ring, which he tolerated much better, and our shins and walls were much happier too!"

Thank you for "Barb". My next door neighbor's name is Barb - so, VOGUE is her new name. Life has been happier with her as part of the family. She is truly a sweetie who has come into her own. She loves the yard and running, barking and playing with Bouncer and Zalka (dogs). Most interesting is her submission to one of our cats, Tuxedo, as she yields her bed upon his demand. Getting used to cats was tough the first couple of weeks but now it is as if we've all been together forever. When I first met her at the pet adoption it was love at first site. Photo's attached.

She's such a little character and her personality is hysterical. To give you an idea, she absolutely hates clothes, is totally monogamous when it comes to her toys and has developed a deep bond with her brother, Wolsey (in the pics). She truly runs our house! I don't think a dog has been more spoiled than this little one...and we love every minute of it. Thank you again for all that you do and for bringing us our little baby."

He loved our Christmas tree, if he wasn't trying to eat it he was found sitting under it. He loves to sit on the couch and look out the window at the birds or squirrels. I think he would love to chase them.

My sons were so very excited to get Rudy. As you can see from our Christmas card photo, they all just adore each other. As my sons told everyone, he was the best Christmas gift ever! Rudy even let me put an elf hat on him but only for a picture then he tried to eat it.

We can't imagine our home without him. He has won us all over. I will send more pics as he grows."

She LOVES the beach and loves being in the car. When I get home every day she runs down the stairs and hops right in my car, always thinks she's going somewhere. She's honestly the perfect fit for my family and I wouldn't trade her for the world. Thank you again."

September 2015: Jasper

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hello OSCAR,

Just a note to THANK YOU and your volunteers for giving Jasper to us. He is such a sweet little boy, so playful and affectionate. He has easily transitioned into our family, which already included two dogs and one cat (all rescues). Jasper has quite a personality. I am pretty sure he thinks he is one of the dogs�..as when the dogs come into the kitchen and sit next to each other staring at Mom and waiting for their treats, Jasper also comes running, sits next to them and waits for HIS treats. Jasper is loving the fact that he has the roam of the house, just like the dogs, as he just doesn�t know what to play with next! There is so much to do! Jasper follows Mom around the house wherever she goes, again just like the dogs.

His favorite pastime lately is trying to make friends with Luna, our other older feline. Luna is a bit of a cranky-pants and is not so excited about being overly friendly with Jasper at this time, but we know she will come around eventually. In the meantime Jasper seems content with being part of our canine club. He is a bit of a piglet, so we�ll have to keep an eye on his weight. (Again just like the dogs). He is happy and content and very much loved! Thank you again!"

August 2015: Anakin

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

To all at OSCAR,

I want you to know that I am enjoying my new home. I have two older brothers now, Ben 17, the larger Chihuahua, and Oliver, 7, he's the tiny black and white Chihuahua. We are still getting to know each other but so far things are going really well!! I have to learn that my "peoples" need to share their attention with my brothers too and not to get jealous. I don't mean to interrupt their belly scratches, but I am impatient and want my turn too because I just love attention.

Yesterday was a big day. My "peoples" took me in the car to Petco! I didn't know what to make of all the toys and new smells, it was an adventure and I enjoyed it very much!! My brothers have tons of toys to play with, but yesterday I got one of my very own, a stuffed Darth Vader that squeaks...(ok I'll be honest, it's my second toy, I didn't want to tell you that I ripped lamb chops foot off to get to the squeaker !! I guess my "peoples" think that I get the connection between my name and that stuffed Darth Vader thing, but I don't.) My "peoples" didn't change my name because they said that I had been through enough changes and they liked the name from the start anyway, they are very nice.

Anyway, today I had my first bath which wasn't so bad, although my mamma "people" insisted on some fru-fru baby powder smelling shampoo. After the bath I dried off a bit and went for a long walk with one of my "peoples", the girl one. I loveeeee to walk around the lake and check out the turtles and geese!! So many new things to see here!! It's fun!!

I'm going to let you go for now but before I do, please know that I can tell already how much they love and care about me. You don't have to worry about me anymore. I am home. Thank you all for taking the time to make sure that I found my fur-ever home and you can now help another fur baby do the same.

Please enjoy my photos and you can choose some to post on your web site and Facebook to let everyone know how happy I am (I like the one with me and my brothers the best)!! XO

Love always,
Anakin

"Hi! I wanted to let you know the amazing progress that Talia is making. She has decided that being outside is not so scary after all. She loves to lay in the grass and keep us company when we are outside. She is getting more confident with going on outings. She used to run and get in her little bed when she saw her collar and leash come out. Now she does a little "happy dance".

We got her a teddy bear haircut for the summer. I paid extra so I could stay with her through the grooming. I didn't want her to be put in a cage. We love her so much. Thank you so much for saving her."

There is no issue with Burrito (also an OSCAR dog, adopted about 5 years ago). They at times play and at times just do their own thing. Taco spent his first night in his bed and never made a sound. As you can see from the one photo he was exhausted after such a venture. Thank you for everything. I look forward to many, many years of fun and joy. The house is already a happier place."

More: "Taco has had a great 3 days. Playing with all the toys and running around the yard with Burrito. No issues at all! My veterinarian checked him out on Friday and was very pleased. He has found his way onto my lap, which Burrito now shares with him."

(Marley)

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ
Riley - Summer 2015

"Hi All at OSCAR:

I cannot believe tomorrow is one year that you brought Riley into our lives. He has changed so much in this past year. He arrived as a very scared puppy who lacked basic manners with an abundance of energy... There were plenty of times that I questioned myself whether this was a good idea bringing a third dog into our home... Then I would think it through and say, there has to be a very good reason why he is with us. And there is..... the unconditional love he gives us and he receives from us.

He attended two obedience classes and loves doggie day care. Riley loves to swim whether it be at our lake or in the bay down the shore. He loves to go to the puppy park and torment his sister. Riley does not like waking up early in the morning on weekdays. He would rather sleep in if he could.

I have enclosed some pictures of him throughout this past year. There is one of him at the screen door with his brother Tully and his sister Bella. There's another one of him close up and Bella photo bombing in the background. One day I put puppy video's on the TV and they wanted to play with them through the wall. He enjoys rides in the truck where the wind is blowing on his face. Then I added one of himself that is absolutely gorgeous, he is so photogenic. We love him so very much, he has grown into a big baby who loves to cuddle and give kisses. He has the best smile and the most award winning golden personality.

Thank you OSCAR for bringing Riley into our lives. We are blessed to have him."

May 2015: Dharma
(Dottie)

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Dharma (aka Dottie) was adopted by us in January. We changed her name to Dharma because we liked it and then we looked it up and it means many different things; Karma, rebirth and universal peace and order. We thought it was more than perfect that her new name fit her new life.

We had lost our beloved family dog of 12 years suddenly to illness and half of us were not sure we were ready for another dog. BUT, once we met her, all but one of us was convinced that she belonged here. The one that was resistant (my 16 year old son) is upstairs now as I type this wrestling and running around with her. It took about 2 days for him to accept her. LOL. She kinda doesn�t give you a choice!

Dharma has not been without some challenges as she is highly allergic to any kind of protein and on top of it she is highly sneaky! It is like having a perpetual toddler and we have to put everything on lockdown. I mean EVERYTHING!!! I have even caught her on my counter. YES you heard correctly. ON MY COUNTER! Getting ready to eat herself some pizza! (Did I mention Dharma can climb? I have never met a dog that can climb!) Unlike a human who says �sorry I am allergic� Dharma says "you gonna eat that?".

OH and speaking of cats, Dharma had never met one before. We have 4 and she has trouble containing her excitement when she sees them. And the cats, as you can imagine, are not amused! Many tussles later she has learned a little respect and they are willing to let her exist with them! All and all she is still adjusting, as are the cats, but we love her and she loves us and this is her home for the rest of her life!"

Happy One Year Adoption Anniversary!

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hello OSCAR!

One year ago, we were blessed with approval to adopt our Lily! Every day she brings us bundles of joy- we love everything about her.

Lily was 3 months old when we adopted her and we could tell right away that the foster family did an amazing job with house breaking her and providing her lots of experiences to become a well-rounded pup.

Today, Lily continues her adventures. She has grown up on our Pennsylvania Hobby Farm and she enjoys chasing chickens - the German Shorthair in her; as well as jumping as high as 4 feet off the ground - the terrier in her. She is a brave little girl, always willing to join us in whatever we do.

Thank you a million times over for the work OSCAR and the foster families do! "

Here is an update of Scrappy since we were blessed to adopt him on May 1, 2015 and welcome him into our home.

Scrappy is now named Shaggy and he has been the perfect addition to our household. He is getting to know Roxy (our 9 year old female cockapoo) and she has taught him how to fetch a ball. He has become very attached to our 20 year old son, follows him everywhere. They've gone for car rides and walks at Horseshoe Lake over the weekend, no problems as he walks beautifully on the leash.

We just love having him and his loving personality. Thank you very much for allowing us to adopt Shaggy!"

They�re now 6 months old and the cutest maniacs you�ll ever meet :) They LOVE to play & get on each other�s nerves, whether it�s with each other inside or out in their new favorite thing, snow! They are always attached at the hip, especially when napping. They outgrew their beds so quickly that they both got a huge bed of their own (and tons of goodies) for Christmas. We�ve officially lost our couches to Pumpkin, Bailey, and our cats as you can see.

We love them very much and are so thankful to have been able to adopt these sisters together. Watching them grow with our family is such an amazing experience. There are also a ton of pictures attached to show how much they've grown and adapted to their forever home & kitty siblings. Thank you again for everything to everyone at OSCAR!"

I have really good manners and I showed everyone I sit and stay and I catch cereal in the air !!

Well later for now. I have a nap to take. All that traveling was tough but worth it.

P.s. I kissed on the first date. Lots !!!!

Love,

There is no doubt that Moxie has quickly become the centerpiece of our family. She is so full of love and affection. Our son just adores her! They are becoming fast buddies.

I have attached some pictures of Moxie. Please feel free to use them in your Happy Tails. The first picture is Moxie with our son and the second is our son reading a bedtime story to Moxie. Something he has taken to doing every night since she's been here. It is THE cutest thing I have ever seen.

We could not be happier. We feel like we hit the lottery, and I know Moxie will feel that way too. She's all snuggled on her new bed in front of the fire on this snowy day. What a life!

Thanks for all you do."

No pools or sprinklers for him but give him a lake and off he goes. He still reads our other dog for social cues but has come to adjust to so many things in the past two years, including sharing.

I have my own fenced in backyard, were I get plenty of exercise. Almost every Sunday my friends come over for a dog party, so I'm well socialized, and my humans even let me sleep in there oversized Sleep Number bed with them (my favorite number is 40).

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hi. It's been a while since I have written to you with an update about Spencer. He is doing wonderfully! We completely adore him and don't know what we would do without him. He has such a good heart and soul.

This has been an exciting year for Spencer. He learned to skijour with us--we have a special harness for him so he could cross country ski with us. He loved it. He also went on a winter vacation to the Adirondacks, and LOVED hiking in the mountains. He is used to going on local hikes several times/week and is always excited to get on the trail. He was over the moon in the Adirondacks. He would run up and down the trails like a professional. He would sleep soundly every night, but the next day he was always ready to hike all over again. Attached is a picture from the summit of Cascade Mountain.

Spencer also got a sister, who has became his best buddy. Her name is Adele and she is also a rescue and a border collie mix. The two hit it off immediately, and Spencer has been a wonderful big brother. He sets a good example and is patient with her. He is great about sharing toys, and they run all over the yard together--Spencer is definitely tired at the end of every day with Adele around. She, too, is a sweetheart, and cares for her big brother.

I hope all is well with the rescue. Thanks again for saving Spencer--he is an incredibly special guy--and for doing everything you do."

We are so grateful to you for all that you did for him. He has taken over all four beds - his brother sleeps on an old blanket. His leg still gives him trouble - he limps but not when he hears the cookie jar. I forget the young lady who brought him to us but she was an angel. She worked really hard to get Gussie a good home and trust me he has been living the dream. Here are some pictures of Gus and his brother Chuck - also a rescue but from Long Island.

Sachi is such a happy girl. Her name means child of joy in Japanese and she truly is. She weighs about 70lbs now and is absolutely gorgeous.

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"We adopted Stevie Ray last year through O.S.C.A.R. (One Step Closer Animal Rescue in Sparta, NJ) on April 7, 2013. He was going to be put down on April 2. That is now his Birthday! He was approximately 2 years old when we adopted him.

We had lost our dog 2 weeks before Christmas of 2012. This guy found us and we think he rescued our family from heartache. We also think that he is a victim of the Sandy Hurricane and that is how he got into a shelter in Paterson, NJ. Most rescue dogs are from out of state, GA, TX, etc. Ironically I was born in Paterson and it was such a coincidence that he is from there as well. KISMET!!

My son took this picture the first month we had him (4/17/13.) He is just the sweetest guy ever. Oh - and if he was a she it would be Stevie Nicks! We kept the name Stevie from his name that OSCAR gave him. My kids insisted. He made our xmas this year for sure!"

(Baby Tramp & Primrose)

Victor, the cat, with OSCAR dog, Murray

"Hope you all are doing well. I wanted to send along some new photos of Charlotte (Primrose) and Murray (Baby Tramp) from the last few weeks.

They are both doing so well and they continue to be a wonderful part of our family. We've been getting out a lot in the nice weather. A few weeks ago, they went in the water for the first time at the park. They also have been loving all the time we now spend out in the yard gardening etc. Charlotte is the glamour dog in the house. Her tail is like something we've never seen, the hair on it must be about a foot long! She likes to be at our side constantly and loves to wrestle with her "brother."

Murray is goofy and always happy. He is a little more independent than Charlotte but at the end of the day, he loves to sleep in the bed with us and won't wake up for hours. They love each other, us and the cats. They like to "play" with our younger cat Lloyd which on occasion involves a bit of chasing. The cat in the photos is Victor, our older peacekeeper cat. We joke that he likes to be the fun police as whenever the dogs start getting riled up in his presence, he lets out one long elongated meow, walks right over to the dogs and goes to swat and the dogs disperse right away.

We will be starting training classes with them next week. They are both very well behaved, but we are hoping the classes will help build Charlotte's confidence and maybe teach Murray not to go crazy when he sees squirrels on our walks. :)

In the photos, you'll see them on "their" futon in the office (which is where they stay when we go out), them in the window, drinking out of the birdbath we just set up minutes before and enjoying outside with our rabbit Barney.

Enjoy the spring and thank you again for rescuing our babies. It's hard to imagine a year ago they were homeless down South."

We had lost our beloved Yorkshire Terrier of almost 17 years and were at that point where we knew we couldn't live without a dog for a minute longer, but needed to find the right fit. A friend of ours had sent us a link to see these three little puppies sitting in a bowl who had been rescued from down south and were up for adoption. It took only a minute for me to look into their faces and know one of these three fuzz balls was for me. I wrote to the fine people of OSCAR and on St. Patrick's Day 2013, Molly (formerly Belle), came into our home. She has truly been one of the best things that has ever happened to us, even though she is not much a fan of hats, as seen here!! Thank you so much! We love our Molly so much!"

"We wanted to update you on Lady, aka Lady Brenna. Lady has sure managed to brighten up my days. She is such a sweet dog, so well behaved and my constant companion. I don't know how such a wonderful dog could have ended up in a shelter but she will never know that fear or confusion again. Everyone loves her so much. Thank you for saving this sweet girl."

January 2014: Sherlock
(Jedi)

O.S.C.A.R. Animal Rescue, Sparta NJ

"Hi, and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It will be 1 year since we adopted Sherlock on January 6. We've been so happy to have him in our lives, especially Molly, our Wheaton Terrier. Both of them celebrated birthdays recently--Molly was 6 on December 17 and Sherlock, our black and white cockapoo, turned 2 on December 9. They have so much fun, chasing each other around the house and playing together every day. On Sherlock's birthday last month, they agreed to pose for you in their Holiday attire! I've also included a solo shot of Sherlock playing with one of his favorite toys.

Thanks so much for helping us find each other. We will be sending a small donation to help you continue with your good work. Thank you once again and bless you for all you do for the animals."
