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. 

Our Vision

For Otis Sake has experienced intense growth over the past 3 years and the next logical step in this progression is for us to get a physical shelter. This facility will not be a "normal" shelter.  This will be a true transformational home, a sanctuary, for those that need us the most. 

It is time... Time for us to step outside of our comfort zone. Time to spread our wings and make a leap of faith. Time for us to be an even stronger voice for those that have none.

Help make this dream a reality... 

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.
