Community Outreach

Do you know that For Otis Sake rescues nationally but serves locally? 

In addition to our rescue efforts, we are also committed to improving the community we serve through the following special programs: 

· Discounted adoption rates for veterans and senior citizens

· Support for Hospice patients and their pets

· Support for shelter to service dog programs

· Opportunities for kids/teens to give back through our soon to be launched Kids Up! Program

Check out some of our recent events where we were out and about, spreading the word about For Otis Sake Rescue and our programs! 

Pet Food Pantry

For Otis Sake partnered with Turning Point and the Washington County Commission on Aging to provide pet food for individuals in need.  

Homewood Strawberry Fest

Every once in a while you meet someone who has a heart of gold and wants to give back.  Someone who takes it upon themselves to organize a fundraiser for you without you asking.  Someone who is so extremely talented that you can't believe she chose your organization as the one to support. 

We had the opportunity to work this lovely lady who decided it was her goal to make handmade, dog-themed items to sell at the recent Homewood Strawberry Festival.  What a talented seamstress she is... and her talents paid off, and paid off BIG.  She raised over $900 for our rescue!  

Thank you Sandra!  Supporters like you help us continue in our mission to rescue, rehab and rehome at-risk dogs.

Our boy Blue had a guest appearance on Good Morning Washington's Kidd Around Town segment for the 2018 Mid-Maryland Petapalooza event! 

PetValu Adoption Event

Our friends at PetValu in Boonsboro ask us periodically to be onsite with our adoptable dogs, and we are always happy to oblige!  Today we were featuring some of our awesome hounds; Mabel, Jethro, and Blue. 

QuarterMania Quarter Auction

The FOS team hosted a very successful Quarter Auction on March 18th at the Morris Frock American Legion Hall. We had a great group of attendees and vendors AND we surprised everyone with some of our special canine friends! 

Valentine's Pet Pictures

We had such a great time at our Valentine Pet Pictures event on February 10th at Hearty Pet Retail.  We had 36 people come in to get one or more pictures taken of their pets.  It was a very successful event and we look forward to our next picture opportunity (hint, hint, one just may be in the planning)!

Enjoy some of the pictures of our happily adopted dogs and their families! 

Tractor Supply January 13, 2018

Tractor Supply has been a regular site for us to showcase our adoptable pets, share our mission and vision with the public and sell some of our FOS swag!  Take a look at these fun pics from our time there...

Stop by and see us in February when we are back at Tractor Supply!
