Founded in 1991, the Oshkosh Area Humane Society provides care for an average of 2,300 animals every year through adoption, lost and found, community education, and more. The Mission of the Oshkosh Area Humane Society is to promote the bond between animals and people, to provide community outreach and education, and to enhance the quality of lives of animals in need through compassionate sheltering, responsible adoptions, programs and services.
A grant from Grey Muzzle helps the Oshkosh Area Humane Society provide needed medical testing and procedures for senior dogs prior to adoption, so that potential adopters can have peace of mind and not face immediate financial barriers for needed pet healthcare. The grant will assist in funding diagnostic senior blood panels and dental cleanings/extractions, two of the most common costs associated with senior care. By providing these services prior to adoption and investing in senior pets, they remove the need for an initial investment from the adopter and encourage more people to consider senior pet adoption.
