Pet of the Week

The Oconto Area Humane Society, Inc. would like you to know about a very special pet awaiting adoption at our shelter.

This week’s selection is ‘Law’, an adorable 6-week-young guy in need of a loving forever home. He is a bit shy with new people, but purrs like crazy once he’s in your arms! He can be adopted for a low $35 adoption fee, with his adopter being responsible for his neuter surgery before he reaches six months of age. Come in to meet him and/or his sister June...they will steal your heart away!

If you believe Law would be a good fit for your household, come in and fill out an application!

Volunteer of the Month: Tina Mossakowski

Tina Mossakowski has been volunteering at the Oconto Area Humane Society on a regular basis for the past 3 months. She enjoys spending time at the shelter taking care of the dogs. Tina is pictured here with her family dog, a Weimaraner named Sadie. Her favorite adoptable dog currently at the shelter is Moby, a 2 year old Bully Breed mix, whom she thinks is a sweetheart! Tina is a busy mother and is very active with the local youth wrestling club. Tina also enjoys spending time out on the water with her husband and family in their pontoon boat. We sincerely thank Tina for all of her hard work which enriches the lives of the pets at the Oconto Area Humane Society!

Local Family Dollar stores hold donation drive for OAHS

The Family Dollar stores in Oconto and Gillett recently held a donation drive to support the Oconto Area Humane Society & Animal Shelter, Inc. Both stores collected laundry and cleaning items for the OAHS, which works at finding forever families for homeless and surrendered animals in our area. Joe Noel, the manager at the Oconto Family Dollar location, was overwhelmed with the generosity of people in the area, and stated that over $1200 worth of supplies were collected during the month-long drive. Because the Oconto Store met their collection goal, Noel gave his employees Easter Sunday off and manned the store alone on the holiday wearing bunny ears and a tail. The Gillett Family Dollar, which recently opened in their new location, was also pleased with the results of their drive.
