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 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.
Riley asked for 'pet items' for her birthday and brought them to the dogs at OSCAR.
Thank, Riley, for the wonderful donations!
Riley says, "So nice to meet you 'Lexi'. Thank you OSCAR for letting us meet such a sweet pup!!"
