Pet of the Week

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

This week’s selection is ‘Seneca’, an adorable 14-week-young boy in need of a loving forever home. He will entertain you for hours with kitten antics and will grow up to be the purr-fect companion. 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...he’s right in the lobby waiting to greet you!

Northwoods Vet Donation Drive

We would like to extend huge thanks to the Northwoods Veterinary Clinic of Gillett for their donation drive!

Through November stop in at the clinic and buy a cute ornament or pet toy, or to drop off donations. All proceeds benefiting the Oconto Area Humane Society!

Volunteer of the Month: Breanna Gusick

The latest Volunteer of the Month award goes to Breanna Gusick, who has been volunteering at the shelter on a regular basis for the past month. She enjoys working with the staff at OAHS, and loves spending time with the animals.

Breanna has never adopted an animal from the OAHS, but that's okay! She does have a rescued American Pit-bull mix named Rossi. Breanna is inspired to stop breed stereotyping. One of her favorite pets at the shelter is Annie, a beautiful Staffordshire-Terrier mix, because Annie has been through more than any animal should, yet she couldn't be more loving. When not volunteering her time and services, Breanna enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with her four-legged girls Rossi and Toni!!

We sincerely thank Breanna for all of her hard work which enriches the lives of the pets at the Oconto Area Humane Society!

Abandoned Dog Brought to Shelter

When a local family went to move into their new home on August 24, 2014, they found a dog that the previous occupant had simply left behind. That family brought the dog, now named Bruce, to The Oconto Area Humane Society scared and matted to the point that simply moving was nearly impossible, and he could only see out of one eye due to his unkempt fur. The shelter quickly transported Bruce to a local veterinarian, where he had to be sedated in order to have his hair cut (and his makeover completed!) Now Bruce has a new look and a new outlook on life, and is happily awaiting his forever home. It is only through community support that the Oconto Area Humane Society can continue to change the lives of animals like Bruce.
