OAHS needs your input!

The Oconto Area Humane Society is looking at possibly making a few changes and we need YOUR help! Please take a moment to complete the following survey. We value your input!


SNBT Donates!

The Stephenson National Bank recently donated $250 to the Oconto Area Humane Society & Animal Shelter, Inc. The shelter was chosen to receive the funds from among several proposed non-profit organizations in the area. Jean Fogelburg, treasurer for the OAHS, is shown receiving the donation from Dan Peterson, SNBT President, and John Reinke, Board Director for the bank.

Volunteer of the Month: Kelly Fisher

Kelly Fisher has been volunteering at the Oconto Area Humane Society on a regular basis for the past 3 months. Kelly is involved with Pack of Possibilities Canine Behavior & Training, LLC organization. She spends her time at the shelter working with the dogs on good manners, obedience training cues, socializing, and providing relaxing massage sessions.

Kelly thinks the best part about volunteering her time at the shelter is getting to know the special qualities and unique personalities of the dogs she works with. She holds a special place in her heart for each of them. Kelly believes all of the dogs she works with are special and it brings her great joy when they are adopted into their forever homes.Kelly’s current “Pack of Possibilities” at home includes a two-year-old Native American Shepherd, a four-year-old Siberian Indian Dog, and her newest addition, an eight-year-old Native American Indian Dog.

Kelly enjoys spending any free time with her dogs, volunteering at OAHS, and studying and practicing canine behavior problem solving, training, and pet message. We sincerely thank Kelly for her hard work and enriching the lives of the animals at the Oconto Area Humane Society!

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 ‘Destiny’, an adorable Lab mix in need of a forever home. She is 6-years-young, and cannot wait to have a family of her own. She is easy-going, well-behaved, and will do well in just about any living situation without other small dogs... She will go home with her new family spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped! She can be all yours for a low adoption fee of $180 and a place in your heart.

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

Thank you, Oconto Jaycees!

The Oconto Jaycees recently donated $1400 to the Oconto Area Humane Society to support and help care for animals awaiting their 'Forever Homes'. In addition to the OAHS, the Oconto Jaycees have supported other community groups, including Bread by the Bay, and Oconto's Winterfest. In the past, they have actively participated in National Night Out, and have offered financial support to the OHS Band, the OHS Drama Club, the "Every 15 Minutes" program, the Oconto Little League Baseball Program, and the Oconto Student Council.

The OAHS wishes to thank the Jaycees for this generation donation, as well as all of their past support.
