OAHS Services

OAHS is unable to provide spay/neuter services or medical exams/surgeries for community-owned animals.  We always suggest contacting your established veterinarian first for medical situations.

  • PET ADOPTION: Nothing makes us happier than finding the perfect match for pets and families. If you are thinking of adding a pet to your family, please make pet adoption your first option. Many wonderful pets are waiting for their families to discover them at OAHS.  Click here to learn how to adopt and view available animals.

  • LOST & FOUND: Have you lost or found a pet? Please contact OAHS right away at (920) 424-2128, ext 2 then ext 1, to file a lost or found report or submit one online here. Reports stay on file until the pet is back with its rightful owner. When a pet comes into OAHS, the lost reports are immediately checked in hopes of reuniting the pet with its family. If you have found a pet, be sure to have it scanned for a microchip. OAHS and veterinarians have universal scanners that can read many different types of microchips. Keep your pets safe by making sure they always wear a collar with identification tags with your current
    information on them. All stray animals that come to OAHS are posted on the Found Strays Facebook Page

  • REHOME YOUR PETWe assist pet owners in rehoming their animals. We may also be able to suggest alternatives to surrendering/rehoming.

  • NAIL TRIMMING AND/OR NAIL CAPS FOR CATS:  Cat nail trims are available by appointment only and a minimum donation of $5 is appreciated for the service. This is a drive-up service. Cat nails usually need to be trimmed every 4 to 6 weeks. Please click HERE for online scheduling. Questions?  Call 920-424-2128 ext 3 then ext 1.

  • TRAP-NEUTER-RETURN (TNR):  OAHS is able to provide TNR services on a limited basis for outdoor working/fractious/feral cats.  If in need of services please e-mail tawana@oahs.org with the following information:  Location, number of cats, property owner name. 
  • VACCINATION/MICROCHIP COMMUNITY CLINICS: Spring-Fall OAHS does hold  community vaccination and microchip clinics for the public.  
  • CAT BEHAVIOR HOTLINE: Does your cat have a litter box problem or exhibit some kind of behavior you don't understand? Maybe we can help. Be sure to first have your pet checked out by a veterinarian to make sure there is not a medical issue causing the change in behavior (all the behavior modification in the world can't solve a medical problem!) Calls are done on a return-call basis only. Call 920-424-2128. When you hear the prompts, press #6. Be sure to leave your name, phone number, email address, a brief message and the best time to call you back.  Or e-mail cheryl@oahs.org with your contact information.

  • COMMUNITY PET FOOD PANTRY:  If you are struggling financially to feed your pets and need pet food, please call us at (920) 424-2128, ext #6.

  • ENGRAVED ID TAGS:  You can purchase an engraved ID tag for your pet at OAHS, available in a variety of shapes and colors.  Tags are $5 for a small and $7 for a large. 

  • EMERGENCIES/ FIRST RESPONDERS: Emergency and police professionals who respond first to scenes of crisis or crime rely on the Oshkosh Area Humane Society twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, to provide shelter and care for animals that may be involved in life-threatening situations. Whether it is a fire, car accident, domestic abuse case, crime scene or natural disaster, OAHS staff appears on the scene, rescuing and housing animals until it is safe for them to return to their homes.

  • FAMILY CRISIS: Each year the Oshkosh Area Humane Society fosters family pets in instances of domestic abuse. Many women are fearful of leaving their animals, so they carefully plan their departure to make sure all of their family members are protected from the violence. The OAHS has been partnering with the Christine Ann Center since 1998 with the intent of eliminating one of the obstacles that may prevent women from leaving an abusive situation.

  • REFERRALS - Veterinarians/Behavior Assistance/Classes/etc: If OAHS can't help you, we will try to find someone who can. OAHS has a list of area veterinarians, dog obedience classes and a vast amount of animal behavioral information. All of this information is free for the asking. Our goal is to help pet owners with their pet-related concerns thereby keeping pets in their original homes. It's okay to ask for help - that's why we're here.
