Oscar the great

Please contact for more information about this pet.

DARE has been caring for Oscar since April 2014 and now he needs a major surgery so we are asking for help with his vetting cost. ANYTHING you can give will be greatly appreciated. DARE is committed to his care no matter what because that's who we are!
Oscar has been in DARE's foster care since April 2014.
He came to DARE via a HIGH kill shelter where at the age of 14, blind & deaf, he was dumped by his owner.
Oscar was in bad shape... he had feces dried all over his body and a yeast infection in his ears that smelled so bad, when we picked him up from the shelter all the windows in the car had to be put down to keep air flow going in the car. Yea it was that bad....actually it was worse....
Oscar has come such a long way since DARE pulled him from death row. Oscar has & will continue to be loved, cared for & spoiled every day at his foster mom's house, until he gets adopted. He shares his home with a cat and a few other dogs...Oscar likes to keep to himself mostly - he isn't too sure of strangers so you MUST be patient with him on your first meeting. Smell means everything to him since it is the only sense he has left. No sudden movements since he cant see or hear you coming...but once he warms up to you....look out...Casanova might have been a better
His story started out so sad- help DARE make it a happy ending!
In addition to ANY donated amount please pray for Oscar - he is having surgery Friday April 10, 2015 and DARE will post updates as often as we can.
