Caring for the Special Ones
We have been so grateful for our volunteer's resolute commitment to the animals, taking in and caring for almost 800 dogs and cats since mid-March.

Zoom Holiday Paw-ty
On Dec. 15 the OHS held its first ever virtual holiday event! The event was a success with a great turnout! President & CEO, Bruce Roney, thanked the volunteers and provided an update on OHS operations. After the information, the part concluded with a fun game of trivia and prizes. Thank you to the volunteers for making the Holiday Paw-ty a howling success!
