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 Matilda!

Breed: Boxer/Mountain Cur Mix
Color: Brindle
Age: Young
Size: (when grown) Large Weight: 61-100 lbs
Sex: Female - spayed
Up-to-date with shots
People friendly, but not good with cats or other dogs.

Matilda and her puppies were dumped at a shelter. She was also found to be heartworm+ at the time. Matilda has completed heartworm treatment and is feeling great. She has an adorable underbite that gives her face such character. She is people friendly, sweet & loving, enjoys playing ball & romping in the yard and snuggling too. Sometimes she can be strong on a leash when she is determined to go somewhere. Matilda can also be picky about her doggie friends and is not a fan of cats so an only pet home would suit her best. Matilda is 4 years old and 68 pounds.

Please help Matilda find the loving home she deserves.
