Campaign Video for Oshkosh Common Council Candidate Michael Ford


Here is a campaign video for Michael Ford, candidate for the Oshkosh Common Council. Because we were unable to tape recent shows with the candidates, I offered them the ability to create a video. This is what I received from Mr. Ford. And remember to vote on Tuesday, April 7. Do absentee voting if you can. https://youtu.be/kWxsb3zTpCU

Pet Food Pantry Opens in Oshkosh


On the latest edition of Eye on Oshkosh, host Cheryl Hentz is joined by Carmen Scott, marketing and communications manager for NEW PAWSibilities Dog Rescue & Shelter in Oshkosh. One of the main topics of discussion was the RUFF Times Food Pantry that NEW PAWS just opened in January.

There are some people who have fallen on “ruff” times and find themselves unable to feed their dog(s), and because of that consider surrendering them. Because no one should have to surrender a family member because of what is – in most cases – a temporary situation, NEW PAWS has started a food pantry from which those folks in need can get the food necessary to feed their beloved furry family members.

Also discussed during the hour is why the majority of NEW PAWS dogs come from Kentucky and how people can help support the rescue – whether it be by donating to the food pantry to help those in need, by making some other financial or in-kind donation, or by volunteering to help them with many of their events and activities, or just around the rescue/shelter itself.

Annual Walk for the Animals Only a Few Weeks Away


On the latest episode of Eye on Oshkosh, host Cheryl Hentz chats with Cheryl Rosenthal and Cari Tetzlaff from the Oshkosh Area Humane Society (OAHS) about their upcoming Walk for the Animals on Saturday, Sept. 14 Rain or Shine. They explain why this walk is so important and how animals and the people who love them are cared for by the money raised from this annual walk, now in its approximately 25th or 26th year, or thereabouts.

They also talk about the shelter’s new Behavior Department that they have created to help people overcome behavior issues their pet may be having, so they can “fix” them rather than the people feeling like they need to surrender their pets.  Lots of other issues were discussed during the hour. This is one show you won’t want to miss.

Thanks to the shelter for giving us the time they always do. They have a ton of helpful information and are a leading resource in the area – whether someone has adopted a pet from them or is having trouble with an animal in some other sense.
