I just want to say what an amazing organization OAHS is. We recently adopted Mildred, however we have adopted two other animals from Oshkosh in the past. The staff is what makes the difference. Ann spent a lot of time with us to get just the right fit for our unique family. Coming from Fond du Lac, we didn't want to take more trips to Oshkosh than we had to. Ann was more than happy/willing to talk over the phone and give as much help/guidance as possible over the phone. Every time we did make a trip to Oshkosh, she took her time with us, and added in her own personal knowledge to help us. I would most certainly say that she went above and beyond what she needed to do. However, "above and beyond" is exactly what these animals are counting on in order to have a great life. In addition, everyone one else that I have come in contact with, have also seemed very pleasant and happy to help. The only link that these animals have to the adults that may adopt them and give them a great life, is the people that are working on their behalf (OAHS workers). So it is crucial that anyone employed or volunteers, must be a champion for these animals that can't speak for themselves. It is apparent that OAHS is dedicated towards achieving that goal. I sincerely compliment, the staff, board of directors, and Ann for all that they do! More importantly Mildred (now Dixie) and the thousands of other animals that have found forever homes thank you.

The Misha & Gretchen (kittens) are doing great overall! They settled into their new environment fairly quickly. It has been many years since getting a new forever pet, so the tips provided during the adoption session were very helpful.

“I can't thank you enough for introducing us to Sasha. We planned to adopt from a different shelter at first, but we weren't impressed with how they handled their animals. When I told you what kind of cat we were looking for, you immediately had a list for me to meet - everyone knew every cat and every personality, and I can't say even close to the same about the other shelter. I'm so happy you require a class to adopt a pet, regardless of people's experience with animals. I learned so much, and I'm so happy to know you're teaching people that a pet isn't just an accessory and showing the right way to care for them, despite what people may have learned from friends/family/TV/etc. I will continue to recommend you to everyone I know and sing your praises to anyone who will listen. And again, thank you for Sasha - she's my best little friend, and I don't know what I'd do without her!”
Thanks millions and millions,

We recently adopted a bonded pair of kittens from this facility and not only were they clean and organized but they had an actual adoption process. In our past experiences with shelters we would go and pick out an animal and bring it home that day. We really liked that they actually took the time to make sure you were a good fit for the animals. They were very friendly and made sure you had all your questions answered. They gave us all the past health information on them and the surrendering papers so we knew all the information they knew on the kittens. They were extremely affordable and helpful! If we ever need to adopt again in the future, this is where we'd go:)

I can't say enough good things about OAHS. They truly care about the animals and want what's best for them. I visited a few times searching for two bonded cats. They led us to Vincent and Jules (formerly Ziggles) and it was meant to be. I couldn't be happier with the boys and can't thank OAHS for allowing us to bring them into our home.

Adopted Ziggles &Vincent, Oshkosh
OAHS has been excellent to work with. Where our pup was concerned, they made sure that he was ready to go with his vaccinations and fixing before we took him home. Our dog Moose was well treated by OAHS prior to our adoption. My family was treated well by all staff members, and we were impressed by the education provided by their experts during the adoption process. We are deeply grateful to OAHS, and we highly recommend working with them.

In July 2016 we decided to adopt a dog. Everyone at OAHS were amazing! Lots of long talks about available dogs over the back desk, and trying to find the right fit for our home. After meeting several dogs we found Woody (AKA Dave Haywood). Ann was incredible in helping us prepare for life with a dog for the first time! We are so in love with this big boy! He is such a smart, goofy, gentle soul. Thank you for all you do!

Our son set his heart on getting mice and spent months saving up enough chore money to afford them. We are so glad that we looked at the OAHS site and found "Momma Cheese" and her daughters. He is so in love with them.
To anyone considering a pet for their child, consider adopting from OAHS and don't count out mice and small mammals. He learned a lot by talking to the staff before adopting, and he now has more responsibility and accountability than he ever did. We make him save up to buy his own food an bedding, clean the cage weekly, feed and provide water, and research ways to enrich their environment. The mice need new things to explore and places to nest and hide their food in order to be healthy. It is a ton of fun to watch them every time he changes something in their habitat or stashes a treat for them to find. Two of our mice had special needs but with careful monitoring of what they had for bedding and food, and by keeping them occupied with habitat changes, both of them have healed and are happy little mice. My son takes great pride in his time researching how to keep them healthy and the fact that he has been able to provide them a loving home. Thank you, thank you, to the OAHS staff for being a part of that journey, life lesson, and resource of information!!!
