My story

From River's favorite dog walker: "River is an amazing pup. He loves to do his own thin and will tell you when he wants to go back inside. What I've discovered, over the years, River bonds to people he knows and once you feel the River love, it hits your heart. You are now someone who he RUNS up to, DIVES into for pets. It's an amazing feeling!"



River is a sweet friendly boy once you and he get to know each other. He gets along with people and some dogs. We do not know what he thinks of cats. River just wants to be walked, run in the yard and be petted. Once he gets his zoomies out he just wants pets. Due to his size a home with older children is preferred. River is about 7 years old and 77 pounds. Please help River find the loving home he deserves.

For an application go to: www.OscarAnimalRescue.org

The adoption process is to first fill out an application. You can go to www.OscarAnimalRescue.org to fill out the application. Once we call your references and if its a good fit for all, we schedule a meet and greet.

Our dogs/cats are not first come/first serve. We place our dogs/cats with the home that is the best fit for them. Not all animals are good in all homes, whether it’s their personalities, nature, or breed. We base our decision on what’s best for the dog/cat and the family. Thanks for understanding!

Please remember everyone who resides in the home must know about the adoption, and its not a surprise to any member of the family. We need everyone to be on board about adopting. Thank you for understanding.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

PLEASE NOTE:

Our shelter is not open to the public and is by appointment only. That's because at OSCAR, one of our highest priorities is the health and well-being of the animals in our care. Unlike city shelters or pounds, whose residents are in place for a short time, as a no-kill shelter, our pets are often with us for weeks, months or even years. The shelter is the only safe place and home they know. When strangers, even well-meaning ones looking to adopt, walk through the shelter, it stresses our animals. We make appointments for potential adopters that submitted applications that have been approved through our process to meet our dogs either in our BarkYard or one of our meeting rooms. We’ll spend as much time as you need and introduce you to as many animals as you’d like to meet in order to make the best match and help you find the perfect new family member!

We hold pet adoption events as much as possible for anyone interested in our animals. It is a great chance for you to come down and meet a bunch of dogs/cats before deciding who is a good fit for you. If you are coming to an adoption event to see a certain dog/cat, please email ahead of time to make sure that dog/cat will be there that day. Please email 1-2 days before the event, as some animals are placed during the week and our list is constantly changing. Individual meet and greets with specific animals are by appointment only.

An approved application must be on file prior to scheduling of a meet and greet.
