The greatness of a nation and it's moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
Beeber was taken in at 6 months old and has lived in Operation Warm & Cozy (OWC) shelter for exactly 5 years before Charles R. of Scio, saw our "Hot Dog" and "Save a Life" ads. He then made a visit to the shelter and met Beeber. Since that day, two lives are now changed for the better. Charles served in our U.S. Navy from 1942-1946 and is now 93 yrs old. After suffering the loss of his wife and soon afterwards, his beloved dog "Pepe" of 14 yrs, Charles told Julie Tripodi, founder of Operation Warm & Cozy Inc, "Finding Beeber has saved my life". Charles's friends and relatives agree, and now he and Beeber are inseparable.

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 3 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.
