Welcome to For Otis Sake


For Otis Sake rescues animals at high-risk or placed in a “death row” status through volunteers and foster families as we have no physical animal shelter.

We rescue animals locally and from various states, coordinate transportation and meet all of our animals to join them on their “freedom” journey.              

Once an animal becomes part of the For Otis Sake family they know they are safe, loved and they will be placed in the perfect FUREVER HOME!


The @Petco Foundation announced its Holiday Wishes grant campaign, giving For Otis Sake the opportunity to receive $100,000, but we need your help!


If you adopted your pet from us, share your story about how your adopted pet brings you more joy each day... and GET THIS, if we’re selected for the grand prize, you will receive a $1,000 Petco gift card!

It is Time for our own Sanctuary...

For Otis Sake has experienced intense growth over the past almost 2 years. We have saved hundreds of lives, we have made a difference in our community, we have formed strong bonds, we have educated others and we have learned. Oh boy, have we learned. Our platform is unique - we do not shy away from the tough cases. We focus on rescuing from high kill rural shelters. We formed a partnership with Hospice to help place the pets of patients that are in their 11th hour. This Sanctuary will not be a "normal" shelter this will be a true transformational home for those that need us the most.

It is time. Time for us to step outside of our comfort zone. Time to spread our wings and make a leap of faith. Time for us to be an even stronger voice for those that have none. We have found a property suitable to set up a physical location. A sanctuary where we can continue our work. A place where we can care for the animals deemed "un-adoptable" - seniors, rare and tough medical cases, palliative care. A physical location where we will have the ability and room to save more dogs and to focus on their rehabilitation. And to do that - we need you. We need your help to secure the down payment on the property. If every single supporter on our Facebook page would donate just $10.00 - just once. We will reach our goal!! It is time. And the dogs need you.

Please click on the below link to read more of our story, more about our dream and to make a donation. You can also donate via the DONATE button on all tabs of our website. We love all of our supporters and know that we could not do the work we do without you! If you prefer to mail your donation please email lauriebrewer@forotissake.org for our mailing address.
