GENERAL FUND DONATION: All general donations are used to help homeless animals in some way. Your gift does make a difference. Thank you!
Live to Play lets dogs be dogs and allows them to play together and have FUN!
OAHS has seen amazing results using this program. Dogs waiting for adoption are less stressed and much happier. Dogs given the freedom to run and play are calmer and more settled when back in their kennels (Experts say 20 minutes of playing with another dog is equivalent to an hour walk.). Not only is it physical and mental exercise for the dogs, Live to Play gives OAHS staff more personality information about each dog. This added information helps OAHS make the best match every dog and its new family.
All one time donations are greatly appreciated. If you are a big time dog lover, you can become a Live to Play Best Buddy by pledging just $20 a month for one year. You can mail in your payments (no reminders are sent, it's all on your honor) or just choose reoccurring payments below.
Best Buddies are recognized with signage in the dog adoption area of OAHS.

CUDDLES FUND: The fund is named after the little white dog tossed over the shelter fence by her owner in fall of 2000. Cuddles suffered a broken pelvis but because of the generosity of others she was able to be healed and placed in a loving home. The Cuddles Fund covers healthcare costs associated with urgent care and specialty cases. Over the years many abused, neglected and/or suffering pets have been saved because of continued gifts to the Cuddles Fund.
In late August of 2000 there was a great out pouring of love for a little, white, abused and injured dog known to OAHS as Cuddles. Her abusive owner beat her, threw her into the trunk of his car, drove to the Dempsey Trail shelter location and then threw her over the 6-foot fence, breaking her pelvis. There was a great outpouring of support for Cuddles, making her full recovery possible. Cuddles passed away in 2013 but her legacy lives on through the OAHS Cuddles Fund and the animals her fund has healed. The fund is designated for pets requiring specialized and/or urgent medical care.
OAHS believes pets with medical conditions deserve every opportunity to receive the medical attention they need along with the chance of finding a forever family. The OAHS will never forget Cuddles or her family, the Rhodes, for giving her such a wonderful home. The Cuddles’ Fund serves as a testimony of the good that can be achieved in this world and a tribute to the little dog who touched so many hearts.
To ensure Cuddles’ legacy carries on, please consider giving a donation gift to the Cuddles Fund.
