Welcome to
For Otis Sake

Our Mission

Our mission at For Otis Sake is to save at-risk dogs by pulling them from overcrowded and under-funded rural animal control and shelter facilities nationwide. We are a foster-only organization with no facility. All donations are used to provide veterinary care, training and food for our rescued animals as we prepare them for their adoptive families.

How you can help

There are many ways to help us in our mission to rescue, rehab and rehome at-risk dogs. Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth or social media, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you. 

If you would like to do more, consider joining our organization as a foster or a volunteer.

Into the Wild Cat Rescue, A Division of For Otis Sake

 The mission of Into the Wild Cat Rescue is to provide a stable environment for cats that are homeless, either abandoned by their previous “owner” or those just living on the streets due to no fault of their own.  Into the Wild also helps educate the community about TNR programs (Trap, Neuter, and Return).
