Hi, I’m Lynx, the coolest, sweetest lady you will ever meet. I’m dreaming of a home where I will be the only cat (a dog may be okay) so I can have all of the love and attention. If you have such a dream home, please come to the shelter and whisk me away. By the way, I do like to have things done especially for me. I like my bed made a special way, I like my bed in a very specific spot, I like certain types of dishes and very soft blankets or laps to lay on. I need a big window so I can always check on what is happening right outside my window. I hope you will visit me toda6y and bring a picture of my new home please.
Hi: I’m Sara and I bet you are saying “Holy cow, you have some really big ears” and yes, yes I do. All the better to hear you calling me. I don’t want to miss a chance for petting, a walk or best of all FOOD! I’m a smart cookie; I know sit, stay but I need a little work on walking with a leash. I just need a little more practice and I hope you will be the one to help me. I like some other dogs, love treats and people and will make a wonderful addition to your family. So, always remember I will always be there for you so please come to the shelter and share
some time with me.
Hi, I'm Henry. On behalf of my fellow rodents and small mammals, we want you to know there's a lot more to OAHS than just cats and dogs! And us rodents are finally getting our day! Don't miss Rodent Rally from 4pm-8pm on Thursday, July 31. Guinea Pigs are nice but mice are more fun to watch (that's my opinion, anyway). We like to burrow in our bedding, run on our wheel and snuggle with our fellow mice. Mice can be very friendly too and oh, I almost forgot - we love treats! If you are thinking of adding a pet to your home don't forget small mammals make nice pets too. Visit soon, okay?
July 28, 2014 Hello friends! Hazel here with a pupdate. My vet appointment to discuss treatment for my skin condition got moved to Thursday this week so I won't be able to give you a medical update until then. But I've been having lots of fun! My foster mom took me to visit a nice family and there was a little boy who was super nice to me. He even gave my foster mom $10 of his own saved money so she could buy me some new toys. Wasn't that so nice? Kids understand the importance of toys. I've also been doing morning yoga with my foster mom. She gets me to "walk" back and forth on the yoga mat for my food. Eventually I do get it but she makes me work for it! Oh, I am also happy to say I am now over 2 pounds! Yep, on the scale yesterday I was 2.1 pounds! I still have lots of growing to do so I make sure I get plenty of rest too. That's about all for now. I'll definitely let you know what the doctor says on Thursday. Have a great day!
Friday, July 18, 2014: We promised you more Hazel cuteness today. Hazel has graduated from eating just formula to eating puppy mush (formula mixed with wet puppy food)! And she LOVES it!
Update Wednesday, July 16, 2014: Hazel, the puppy abandoned at Planeview Travel Plaza in Oshkosh, was seen on Tuesday July 15, 2014 by Dr. Bruce VanEnkevort, a board certified veterinary surgeon, specializing in orthopedic surgery, at the Fox Valley Referral Center. Previous x-rays indicated possible orthopedic injuries which could have resulted in eventual surgery, although no definitive diagnosis was available at the time. According to Dr. VanEnkevort , new x-rays, along with a detailed physical examination revealed most of Hazel’s health issues appear to be congenital. The former owner was found and he said while he had Hazel, she never used her rear legs, although this has not been confirmed. Further inquiries revealed Hazel’s mother may be Boston Terrier. Hazel may be older than what the veterinarians initially thought because her puppy teeth are less developed. Dr. VanEnkevort is treating Hazel for “Swimmer Puppy Syndrome,” characterized by a general weakness of the hind legs and an inability to walk by the typical age of 3 weeks. There may be some genetic influence making her more likely to inherit this ailment. Current treatment will be a series of braces and physical therapy to attempt to get Hazel to gain use of her rear limbs. The Oshkosh Area Humane Society is committed to Hazel's wellbeing, and as she grows her condition will be carefully monitored to ensure she’s on the right path to wellness and her treatment plan may be modified accordingly.
