The lady running this shelter has no sympathy for anyone. She pulled my dog from local kennel when I was trying to retrieve my dog. She then used all my comments and emails against me so that I couldn't get my dog back. She wouldn't even hear me out but only would threaten me with legal action. Those dogs sit alone in a kennel behind the city's waste water treatment plant with minimal affection for months and months.
I recently surrendered my well cared for puggle to the county kennel due to health reasons. I reconsidered that same day but Oasis already picked up my dog. I tried to reach out to Oasis and was met with judgement and hostility. I was threatened with legal action if I continued to try and recover my dog. These people also run the Four Legged Cafe in Oberlin. They have my dog posted on the Cafe's Facebook page but if you inquire, they tell you that dog is not available. My family is traumatized by the loss of our dog and disgusted with the treatment we received by this rescue.
Oasis, an all dog shelter, is a difficult place to work at. One person calls all the shots and is not easy to get along with. Efforts to help the dogs get adopted go nowhere since the power is all in one person's hands. The city is aware of what goes on with this shelter and act like they cannot do anything, but really, just don't want to. Many wonderful dogs stay there for years and years which is shameful. Many good, would-be adopters are treated like garbage and turned down for stupid reasons. Needless to say, not too many volunteers stay there for long.
