Want an Oscar without winning an Academy Award? Adopt this dog! Approximately eight years old and a Collie mix, Oscar arrived as a stray at the Granville County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on August 12th. He was suspected of being deaf. Oscar also had a skin infection that needed veterinary treatment, which made him available to rescues only. This rural shelter has very limited kennel space, so when the shelter reaches capacity, dogs are euthanized to make room for new intakes. All of this, combined with Oscar's age put him greatly at risk.
