Volunteer of the Month: Wendy Sibiski

The Oconto Area Humane Society & Animal Shelter, Inc. is proud to announce the newest ‘Volunteer of the Month’ award. This award was established to help recognize the many volunteers who make the operation of our shelter possible.

The latest ‘Volunteer of the Month’ award goes to Wendy Sibiski, who has been helping out at the OAHS, Inc. for three months. She enjoys volunteering at the shelter because she is able to spend time with the animals. When she isn’t volunteering, Wendy enjoys drawing, crocheting, and counted cross-stitching.

We sincerely thank Wendy for working hard at enriching 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.
