Oscars Arc is a registered charitable trust born to inspire dog adoption and save shelter dogs lives. ‘WOOF Project’, the signature initiative of Oscars Arc, is a dynamic ‘pop-up’ dog adoption concept that aims to accelerate dog adoption through innovative design, creative marketing, and providing an unrivaled, positive dog adoption experience. Since its inception in 2017, WOOF Project has increased the total combined Western Cape adoption rate by 42%.
All the dogs originate from existing shelters and the mobile ‘pop-up’ WOOF Project moves within convenient inspired locations in order to provide these dogs with the exposure needed in order to find a forever home. With the exception of puppies under 6mo. of age, all dogs are vaccinated, sterilized and fully vaccinated. WOOF Project offers a ‘NAME YOUR PRICE’ dog adoption fees along with your satisfaction, guaranteed.
Oscars Arc was founded by Joanne Lefson in honor of Oscar, her adopted dog and best friend who became the first and only dog to ever travel around the world – visiting 45 countries in order to promote dog adoption. Highlights of the 2009 WORLD WOOF TOUR included Oscar walking the Great Wall of China, climbing Machu Picchu, sailing the Amazon, posing before Red Square, hang gliding over Rio and tying the knot in Las Vegas. Oscar’s acclaimed travels made him the international ambassador for homeless dogs, raising invaluable awareness for their plight.
Oscar’s legacy continues through Oscars Arc- directly measured through every dog given a home – and a life – through WOOF Project.
