As staff and volunteers at OAS, we are always asked “how do you not take all of them home?” It’s tough for all of us! However, once in a while, we get an animal at the Shelter that we all know just belongs at the Shelter. Here they are:
Dusty is our mascot bunny. He has educated countless people on the joys of bunnies. He’s the most gregarious rabbit you’ll ever meet. He’s so friendly that you have to worry about tripping over him when he’s out and about. Dusty enjoys sitting on top of our picnic table, running after volunteers and meeting new people.
Kramer and Pink
Kramer is a former fighting cock. He was picked up from a cockfighting bust that OAS performed. He had been in a fight where a gaff (knife) had penetrated his skull. Kramer now has some brain damage and has some trouble walking and he drinks upside down! You have to see it to believe it!
Pink was left at the Shelter about a week after Easter. She was just a tiny chick and had been dyed pink. Kramer had recently lost his mate, “Chicken Little” and had become terribly depressed and had started to not eat or get up. We let Pink out into the Courtyard and she immediately ran over to Kramer. They bonded instantly! Kramer became a new bird with his mate and now struts around and is a happy rooster again. Pink can’t stand it if Kramer is put back in his cage before her – she’l scream and scream until she is reunited with him.
