Featured Cat


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.

Featured Dog


Ryder here!  Hey, do you like to be on the go?  I sure do!   I'm a young guy full of energy looking for an equally active family. And I am SUPER smart!  The volunteers here have worked on commands with me and I am doing awesome!  I'm very affectionate too - I love to snuggle! I'd do best in a home with older kids (like around 8 and up) because I still like to jump when I get excited.  I do fine with cats and I do like to play with other dogs but I just don't like to share my "stuff" with other dogs (that would be my food, toys, etc) so I would probably do best as your one and only dog.   I am housetrained and ready to join my new family!

Small Mammal


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?
