We were established in 2010 by Diane Troxell of Oxford, NY. We are a 501c3 organization dedicated to helping animals by providing spaying and neutering assistance to pet owners in Chenango, Delaware and Otsego counties. We also help with emergency veterinarian services for dogs and cats.
And we have a PET FOOD BANK for needy pets.
As of 2020, we have been fortunate enough to work with ANIMAL CARE SANCTUARY in East Smithfield, PA. They provide a very reasonable price for spaying and neutering cats and provide pick up in Oxford and drop off the next day. Also, once a month Dr. Emily Dutton of Walton, NY spays/neuters up to 10 cats for us. In 2020, even with 2.5 months of no clinics due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we helped 496 cats get fixed at ACS. These cats were owned or feral.. Our bottle shed is now located at the Delaware Valley Humane Society 17420 County Hwy 23 Sidney NY. We have a new building at 65 North Washington Avenue, Oxford which stores our pet food, cat carriers, dog crates and traps. It is also our drop off and pick up for our cat clinics with Animal Care Sanctuary.
Thanks to the FRANCES J. & ELIZABETH BRISSON MACKSEY CHARITABLE TRUST FUND and the DOROTHY M. & FRED HAMILTON FOUNDATION we have been able to SPAY/NEUTER HUNDREDS OF DOGS AND CATS. We couldn't do what we do without the help from Richard Runyon, and Jessica Thompson, Trustees of the Sterling Higley Foundation.
The Krista L. Bartle "4 Paws Friends Fund" was established in 2012 by her family in her loving memory. Krista, a true animal lover, died unexpectedly in October of 2011.
WE ARE A GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS AT ALL ANIMALS MATTER and WE SOMETIMES WORK WITH OTHER LOCAL AGENCIES TO HELP END THE PET POPULATION BY SPAYING AND NEUTERING DOGS AND CATS.
WE ARE NOT A RESCUE! WE DO SEEK VOLUNTEERS. PLEASE CONTACT DIANE TROXELL IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HELPING AT ONE OF OUR EVENTS.
