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!.

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

Meet Rosie!

Breed: Redbone Coonhound/Labrador Retriever Mix
Color: Brown/Chocolate - with White
Age: Young
Size: (when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs
Sex: Female - Spayed
Up-to-date with shots
Good with Dogs
Not Good with Kids

Rosie is shy with new people, but once she warms up she is very sweet and playful. She will need someone who will understand to let her come out of her shell at her own pace and not try to force her. This beautiful girl is good with other dogs and would do well to be in a home with another dog, preferably male, to help her come out of her shell more quickly and act more of an anchor for her. Rosie likes to play with toys and knows how to do a sit. Due to her size and energy a home without young/small children is preferred. We do not know what she thinks of cats. Rosie is about 3 years old and 55 pounds.

Please help Rosie find the loving home she deserves.

Meet Captain!

Breed: German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever Mix

Age: Adult
Size: Med. 26-60 lbs
Sex: Male - neutered
Up-to-date with shots
House-trained

Not Good with Cats
Not Good with Dogs
Not Good with Kids

Captain has the most expressive eyes that look at you begging for love. He is housebroken and knows basic commands. He is a playful dog who loves his toys. He can't get enough squeaky toys and has his collection. Captain also loves to go for car rides and to be outdoors and explore. He has a high prey drive and loves to chase squirrels, chipmunks, etc. and will dig under fences to try to get to them. Captain's adopter needs to understand that he loves to eat so much that he needs to be left alone while he enjoys his meals and treats. Captain can be picky about his dog friends and would probably do best as an only dog and in a home with older children. This Shepherd mix boy is about 5-6 years old and 55 pounds.

Captain would do best in a home with the following criteria:

  • No kids
  • No other dogs/cats/pets
  • Experienced dog owner
  • Low foot traffic home (non active home without lots of people coming in and out)

Please help Captain find the loving home he deserves.
