The greatness of a nation and it's moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
SOMEONE DID THIS TO HER,
But with several quick acting citizens (Lori Jackson, Karen Kirsch, Rose Hayne, Laura Hahn), Operation Warm & Cozy Inc. and Oak Pointe vets and staff..........
OWC has FREE STRAW in New Philadelphia. If you know of ANY outdoor pets without straw, you are more than welcome to get a bail for them.
Please call Julie at 330-364-7190 to arrange for pick-up. 6 bails and counting are currently pre-paid and ready for family pets to utilize during this brutal cold spell. Please stuff the boxes full so they can burrow.
The outdoor dogs and cats are struggling and may not survive without STRAW. (DO NOT USE HAY, CEDAR CHIPS or NEWSPAPER and think that this will insulate. It will not).
You need not give names when arranging for pick-up.
Scooby was dumped near Roswell, OH and saved by a caring resident. He contacted OWC and Scooby is now in the loving arms of this family and doing well:)
Stella and Tucker (both senior dogs) were also dumped in rural areas last year and both are in loving homes after recovering in OWC Dog Sanctuary.

Mr. Ped was dumped on a property (tied to a tree) in 90 degree weather when the residents were on VACATION! He was in bad shape. The home owners found him upon returning and called OWC after another local Humane Society said that if THEY picked him up, they would simply take him to the sale barn- which means "take him to slaughter". That is NOT rescue! We built him a very nice area and 2 1/2 years later he is doing GREAT at 31 years old. He has been showered with love and attention ever since we received his loving soul. We adore him.
All tax deductible donations go directly to the care of sheltered & rescued animals. Donations fund our rescue efforts. There are NO paid employees. Aside from veterinarians, all care givers who work with OWC animals are strictly volunteers.
Our fowl specialist, Rosemary Haflinger, rescued this goose after he was found with fishing wire wrapped around both of his legs. He has been returned to the wild after a full recovery:)
