OAS Wish List

This is our Wish List.  It is filled with items that will help improve the quality of life of the animals at the shelter.  We now have “CREW APPROVED” items that have been requested by our dog and cat crews – shelter volunteers who focus on our long-term animals or animals who are scared/shy and need extra attention. These items have been tested out by our crews and we know that the animals love them.
