CHANGING LIVEs, one at a time
Orphan Animal Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. is a no-kill, volunteer-driven, 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue. Our mission is to save the lives of homeless animals, one
at a time. We provide compassion, love and the highest quality care for each animal, in a cage-free, homelike environment, until they find a forever home.
We are a network of foster homes and also have a small Adoption Center located at 810 S. Commercial St. in Neenah, Wisconsin. Stop by during our adoption hours, Wednesdays 5-7pm and Sundays 11-2pm. You can also meet our adoptable pets by appointment. Please note: adoptable dogs are generally not on-site during open hours; they are in private foster homes.
Since 2008, OARS has found forever homes for more than 2,300 animals! *as of 1/2015
