Platinum Paws Program

These Pets have earned a place of distinction in the hearts of OHAR

The Platinum Paws Program was designed for OHAR pets that have found themselves living in the OHAR shelter during their golden years.

Special incentives and sponsorships are provided to help find

Platinum Paws Pets loving homes


Ask anybody who has adopted an adult dog or cat, and they'll swear their bond with their rescued pal is as deep as they come. When you open your heart and your home to an older dog or cat who needs help, they really do show their appreciation for the rest of their life! Pets who have been uprooted from their homes, or have had difficult beginnings are likely to bond completely and deeply with their new human caretakers who they view as heroes. Pets who find themselves in the shelter or at a rescue group because of a death or other tragedy in their former human family usually go through a mourning period. Once they are adopted, however, they usually want nothing more than to please their new hero---YOU! No matter what circumstances brought them to the shelter or rescue group, most older pets for adoption are exceptionally affectionate and attentive pets and extremely loyal companions. 

How Your Sponsorship Gift Helps

When you sponsor a homeless pet at OHAR, you help that animal in ways that can't even be counted.

Platinum Paws Program helps animals find loving homes by covering the adoption fee,

and providing community education. 

Your gift also celebrates those humans over 65 years of age by enhancing their Platinum Paws adoption experience

by eliminating the initial cost of adopting a pet.

Your donation will provide a leash, the pet's pick of a toy or blanket, treats and 1 month medication for the pet (if applicable) 

*Regardless of the waived fee, backgrounds are conducted on all potential adopters by connecting both vet and personal references.

Home checks to ensure the pet and family are a good match are also conducted. 

How To Sponsor a Platinum Paws Pet

A sponsorship gift is a one-time gift of $200 or more made in honor of an animal at OHAR.

An individual, organization or company can sponsor a pet by giving the set amount or by pulling together to raise the funds.


The sponsorship can also be given in honor of someone else.

To show our appreciation of your generous gift,

the sponsor's name(s) will be published on the pet's bio and posted on social media.
