An event very near to my heart. After spending years working as an Admin and outreach volunteer at Oregon Humane Society, I am honored to support them and their amazing life saving efforts. Please join me virtually as I support their love and unwavering efforts in saving more than 13,000 pets each year.
You know how much I love animals. I signed up for Doggie Dash because I believe in creating a more humane society and the pets in our community need help!
Did you know that OHS never puts time limits on how long pets remain at their shelter? What really touches my heart is when a pet arrives at OHS who may be shy or frightened, OHS has a special program to help teach them to trust people and that love is good. Big wins are the simple things like when they first take a treat from your hand or their first wag of their tail, but the really big win is the loving home they will be ready for when adopted. I even got to be a "Pet Pal" to dogs who didn't have previous manners and socialization. It was wonderful to see their loving transformation and most of all to witness the loving furrever families who adopted them.
And when it comes to helping abused or neglected pets, they have a Humane Law Enforcement team that is in the field, taking extra precautions during COVID, to investigate reports of animals who sometimes are in desperate situations. However, many times, humane officers are connecting struggling pet owners with lifesaving supplies or resources.
OHS realized early during the pandemic that pet owners needed help and OHS has stepped up to support pet owners around the state. Close to 100,000 pounds of pet food was delivered to shelters and food pantries around the state, and given directly to owners at free pet food banks at OHS.
I know your pets were a comfort to you through this very challenging past year.
And I'm hoping you'll join me in helping pets from all walks of life. Please donate
Thank you for the bottom of my sort of furry heart! - Donna
