Become a Guardian Angel:
Have you ever wanted to adopt a pet, but just couldn’t? Do you ever wish extra help could be given to shelter dogs and cats? If you are that someone, please become one of our Guardian Angels. During your time as a Guardian Angel, you will be helping a number of pets as they await a permanent home. Your status will be recognized with a card on your sponsored cage or kennel, naming you, your family, or your business as that pet’s Guardian Angel. Anyone who visits our shelter will be reminded of your generosity. Donors who give $100 or more per month will be named Guardian Angels. Payments can be made online, in-person, or by sending in your donation.


Make a gift in memory or honor of someone special:
OCHS welcomes gifts and donation in memory and honor of family, friends and pets. Your gift is a thoughtful tribute to a special individual or pet who brightened someone’s life and will help OCHS continue to provide second chances to the animals we care for. We will mail an acknowledgement of your gift to whomever you specify. Please contact our Treasurer at for more information.


Recycle your aluminum cans:
Help the animals at OCHS and the environment by donating your aluminum cans. You can drop them off at the Starkville Animal Shelter anytime – the recycle bin is to the right of the building. You can also drop them off directly at Starkville Recycling; just tell them that they are being donated for OCHS. The proceeds from the cans help us provide the best care for our shelter animals.


Your regular purchases can benefit OCHS – at no cost to you!  Visit for additional information.
