How We Help

OHS has three main programs to support our local animals and local people in our communities.

Our Rescue Program serves local lost, abandoned, and feral animals by capturing them and ensuring they receive all necessary medical attention needed.

Our Pet Assistance Program serves our local animals and local people who face income barriers to ensure their pets receive basic medical attention needed. Much of the support we provide is for low income spay and neuter services.

Our Foster and Adoption Programs serve our local animals to ensure they receive a safe, loving new home when ready!


Who We Are and What We Do

We are local people helping local animals.

We are a passionate, dedicated team of volunteers working together to save lives and end the suffering of local animals in our community.

Established in 1996, OHS has been rescuing animals and providing spay and neuter services to help with pet overpopulation.

Since inception, OHS has spayed or neutered more than 27,000 animals and last year we helped more than 1,500 local animals in need.
