Oswego Animal Shelter

Our Pet List

Pets of the Month is every thing we have .

As much as we'd love to centerfold a pet or two, they all need homes now. We are a small shelter with a small staff. Our facility is a quick holding place but not meant for long term living. Animals are not in a home enviroment,but cages day in and day out. All of our critters deserve better than we can give in a shelter situation. "


WE THANK EVERYONE THAT BROUGHT OUR CRITTERS SOME XMAS JOY THIS YEAR, THEY LOVED THE MANY TOYS AND TREATS THAT WERE COLLECTED UNDER OUR TREE THIS YEAR. Junior Girl Scout Troop #393 donated dog and cat food as well as toys . This is the forth year in a row they have thought of us. Thank You! The Brownies recently donated several bags of dog and cat food to the shelter as well canned food. They also donated some toys for the dogs and cats to play with. We always appreciate donations of any kind and want to thank them for thinking of the homeless animals here at the shelter. Price Chopper in both Fulton and Oswego have recently held pet food drives. Their generous donations to the City of Oswego animal shelter are very much appreciated. The people in our community never cease to amaze us with their love for animals and their never ending support.


P.A.O.C We have recently started a program with Paws Across Oswego County in which they pay to have some of our pets spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They also have the cats tested for Feline Leukemia and the dogs tested for Heartworm. In the future we would like to have 100 % pre spay and neuter. Paws Across Oswego County donated $1000 worth of dog and cat food. The food was much appreciated due to the shortage of food donations in the past year.They have also donated a sterio system with soothing music for the animals, along with new beds for all the dogs and larger cages for the cats. Paws Across Oswego County donated many items for the comfort of the animals in our facility. We have recieved,stainless steel dishes,collars and leashes,toys,brushes,treats,nicely knitted blankets,grooming supplies,boxes for kitty houses,food and litter.We thank them for caring. !00% of your donation to Paws Across Oswego County is used for spay and neuter of less fortunate animals. They do not have a paid staff only a group of volunteers that wish to improve animal education in our community. No donation money is wasted on bills for rent, phones or utilities. All monetary donations go to the cause at hand, SPAY and NEUTERING. We appreciate the honesty and thoughtfulness toward the animals from this small group of caring individuals. .
