Oasis / OAS Dogs From Forks Washington
Provided By Protest OAS (August 1, 2015)
Yesterday Guardians of Rescue announced that the 14 remaining dogs that survived the Olympic Animal Sanctuary (OAS) have left Golden Valley, Arizona where they have been at a temporary shelter since Christmas Eve 2013. It’s believed a handful of the dogs, including Ralph, Tatonka, and Clara have have gone to Pati Winn back in Washington State. You’ll recall Pati Winn is the former volunteer who exposed the inhumane conditions at the Olympic Animal Sanctuary. Pati fought like hell to save the lives of the dogs, and was instrumental in triaging the dogs after Steve Markwell surrendered the dogs to Guardians of Rescue. In February Robert Misseri, the President of GOR, shared Pati was stepping forward for 5 dogs. Snaps, a dog that went to OAS after being declared dangerous in King County, went home with Pati when she left the triage site. After seeing Ralph shut-down in February, we believe the photos GOR posted of Ralph today smiling can only be because he has been reunited with Pati.
It’s also believed that with the exception of Maui (who left Golden Valley separately earlier in the week), the remaining dogs were transported to another location in California. In their announcement yesterday, GOR stated, "We have purchased and provided new kennels to help with housing of the remaining 14 dogs at their new locations, to ensure they had good, strong kennels waiting on their arrival.” Their statement about “ strong” kennels is consistent with reports that another location was set-up specifically to house these dogs, several of which have been declared dangerous.

As of July 2015, Guardians Of Rescue have not provided these dogs with any mental and physical stimulation necessary in reducing problematic isolation behaviors or pain related aggression. In February, a Behavioral Assessment Evaluation* (with video) was conducted on sixteen dogs. This was presented to Guardians Of Rescue early March. However, not all dogs could be effectively evaluated as they had become overly stressed from their CURRENT living environment. The dogs in Guardians Of Rescue care have digressed since mid-2014 without proper socialization or enrichment programs. They linger in their pens. We can only hope Guardians Of Rescue will implement enrichment programs and increase their living condition in the near future Note; "...last 12 months, 7 of the former OAS dogs (Jack, Dozer, Chance, Sparky, Bandit, Ghost, Max) went to 3 rescues. 2 of these rescues had at least 1 OAS dog prior.". Read July 2015 Protest OAS urging Guardians Of Rescue to update their plans on the remaining 14 dogs.
* The professional conducting the evaluation was independently contracted by a concerned citizen and approved by Guardians Of Rescue who was present during the two day evaluation.
