Halloween is almost here, so you know we had to dress up the babies. Maverick (the bee) and Ollie (the shark) are just the sweetest big boys and we’re happy to play along. Our kittens tend to get adopted very quickly, which leaves wonderful adult cats like these boys having to wait. We would love to see Mav and Ollie find a family today!

Due to Covid 19 we have unfortunately not been able to see our volunteers since the spring. It’s been tough! Our volunteers are such an integral part of our success here at OCAS. We are just now slowly starting to open up the program to our already established volunteers on a scheduled basis, and are so grateful to see familiar faces. We have heard from so many new community members who want to get started, and once we get the new system up and running, we will begin to accept new volunteers. Anyone wishing to become a volunteer should follow our website and page for new information.

We would like to take a moment to acknowledge two amazing volunteers - Terry and Phil. Both Terry and Phil have been with us for many years. Phil has been volunteering Tuesdays - Fridays since 2013! While home, they have continued to help the shelter by putting together our adoption info packets. We’re so grateful to have them on our team! Thank you Phil and Terry.

Thank you as well to volunteer Jonathan for bringing the team some delicious home-baked treats yesterday. It’s usually our pups & kitties getting all the treats (as it should be), but it was a very nice surprise to be the recipients of such a kind gesture. ♥️

Happy Adoption Day!

Meet Princess Atta. This fun and feisty cutie is available for adoption today at noon.

Atta came to us as a tiny baby at the end of September - too tiny to be spayed and placed for adoption. So we sent Atta to stay with another of our wonderful foster families so that she could grow in the security of a loving home. We are so grateful to our fosters for all that they do!

***ADOPTED***

We’d like you to meet Onyx. Now we know Onyx looks like your every day black cat. He’s very handsome, we know, but if you look carefully, you’ll see that Onyx is a special boy, and he is an example of all that is so special about the team here at OCAS.

Onyx was brought in to the shelter by Animal Control Officer Gorham. For Onyx, who was trapped with a severe injury (a shoelace had been tied around his neck and had become imbedded), Officer Gorham was a lifesaver. Our officers work day in and day out with little recognition for work they do in our community, but they make such a difference. We would like to thank not only Officer Gorham, but all of our officers for the job that they do. From there our veterinary staff was able to carefully remove the ligature and treat Onyx’s wound. Though the lace was removed, he had lots of healing to do, so we sent Onyx to one of our incredible foster families. His foster took extra care to come in for checks and to learn how to change his bandages at home. We can’t thank them enough for their time and nurturing in a home environment that has gotten Onyx to today.

Onyx still has some final healing to do, and he will always carry the scars of his experience, but this boy is an affectionate, playful, happy cat who loves attention, and is apt to nuzzle anyone that stops by. For all that he has endured (by the carelessness/cruelty of humans) is just the sweetest boy.

We are so grateful for our shelter family, from our Animal Control officers, to shelter staff, all the way to our volunteer fosters. It’s a team we’ve worked so hard to build, that has done so much for so many and is always trying to do better for the animals of Onslow County.

Our boy Onyx is ready for a new chapter in life - his happily ever after! If you are interested in adopting Onyx, please call 910-937-1164.

Would you like to help the shelter? Sometimes it is as easy as cleaning out your closets. Did you know that we accept donations of gently used leashes, collars and harnesses (for help with our rescue transports) as well as stuffed toys for our feline friends to cuddle?

Have old towels, t-shirts or fleece blankets/fabric? Feeling crafty? Our pups and cats love simple braided toys you can make at home.

Looking for additional ways to help? We also have an online wish list of needed items: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/36Q2K58I9OTMN?ref_=wl_share

Your kindness allows us to provide the best for our shelter friends -a steady, high-quality diet, tasty treats, toys to keep them curious and active and the supplies that may not seem flashy, but help us get from day to day. We couldn’t do what we do without your support!

A very big thank you to Cathy Griswold, Lori Mulvaney, The Hoopes family, Meaghan Cathleen Kelly, Vanessa Evans, Stephanie Clemons, Dianne McKagan, Patrick Libby, Jared Novak, Kristi Nunnally and Safe at Home Pet Sitting of Jacksonville, Emily Walton, Tina Miller, The Edwards Family, Katherine Proffitt, Jose Covarrubias, Dr. Jennifer Welsh, Troy Matlock, Patricia Douglas, Lorraine Newton, the Landrie FamilyKaitlin Sekeres, Andrea Middleton, Cayla Perry, Shannon, Vickie Snead and to the many anonymous donors who send packages our way.

It's been more than a month since Stella started her "adventure" with us at OCAS. Since then, she has been adopted and returned twice, within days, for not being a good fit. We know that not all dogs are suited to all families, and that's ok, but it's easy to understand why this has made Stella is so unsure of herself. All that back and forth is bound to be stressful, in addition to the overwhelming nature of the shelter environment. Stella is a shy girl, and very nervous around loud noises. She will need a human (or family) who will be able to give her the time and understanding she will need to be confident in a new space. Stella loves being outside and feels most comfortable in our outside space. Staff loves watching her get the zoomies and running the yard. Stella is looking for a calming environment. We think a home with a big fenced backyard, older children who can understand her needs and another dog to help her adjust would be ideal for Miss Stella. Stella does well with other dogs and cats is housetrained. She is 44 pounds.

Stella has unfortunately tested positive for heartworms, so she will also require an adopter who will be able to provide her with treatment for a healthy heart.

Stella deserves a family and a place to call home. She deserves a chance to feel safe and loved. If you are able to open your heart and home to a special needs pup like Stella, please call 910-937-1164 to schedule an appointment.

If anyone has adopted a pup like Stella from us in the past, we would love to know their success story. Post it here!

Three legs, no problem! Our happy-go-lucky girl Athena doesn’t let anything slow her down. Athena is an affectionate, sweet-natured pup. She loves playing fetch, behind-the-ear scratches, belly rubs and soaking up all the love. Athena does well on a lead, enjoys time in the yard and is an all around good girl. She has been around young children and dogs previously, but would prefer a home with no cats. Athena is a 5 year old Pittie mix, is 60 pounds and has tested heartworm negative.
