The Oshkosh Area Humane Society takes in a variety of animals including small animals such as domesticated rabbits, rats, mice, gerbils, hamsters, Guinea pigs, and even an occasional ferret, bird or reptile. OAHS uses other humane societies and/or rescue groups when it come to the welfare of certain small animals such as ferrets, reptiles and event birds.
It is important to understand while these small creatures can make wonderful pets, many of them have special needs when it comes to their care and well being. OAHS has several resources for information on the health and caring of the small wonders. Before bringing a small animal into your home, please read about the species and their needs to make sure they will be the right fit for your lifestyle and the amount of time you can truly commit to meeting their physical and mental needs on a daily basis.
