Guide Dog Oscar



Oscar is an amazingly smart guide dog. Oscar and his owner have hiked thousands of miles, even hiked the Appalachian Trail together. Oscar and his companion, Bryan Brown, were tragically struck by a car while crossing a street in Wisconsin Rapids Monday November 16th.  While Oscar’s owner Bryan Brown was taken to the hospital by ambulance and treated for his injuries, Oscar was brought to the Wisconsin Rapids Fire Department. It was determined that Oscar was suffering from internal injures. The guide dog, Oscar was then transferred to a Wisconsin Rapids Fire Department vehicle and transported to an animal hospital.  Oscar is currently in stable condition and is being care for at the Animal Medical Surgical facility in Wisconsin Rapids. Oscar’s owner and companion remains hospitalized as well and being treated for his extensive injures.  Oscar has an extensive road to recovery along with mounting vet bills.  Please help Oscar who is more than a pet. Oscar is guide dog that provides his perfect match with the gift of mobility and sight.  Your generous donation will help both Bryan and Oscar.  This campaign was established with the permission of Bryan Brown.
