Join me in supporting Doggie Dash, a fundraiser for Oregon Humane Society!
You know how much I love animals, as evidenced by my interruptions in a conversation when I see someone walking their dog or by my own two kitties at home. I signed up for Doggie Dash because I believe in OHS's ability to create a more humane society. A large part of that is in helping animals!
This past year so much has changed but our love of pets is constant. My kitties, Nikki and Zoey, have given me many needed moments of joy and cute "aww" moments. To be able to help other animals find a home where they can do the same for their own humans is a worthy cause and OHS is still committed to their mission and helping pets and people in need.
Some tidbits about OHS:
1. OHS never puts a time limit on how long a pet can remain at their shelter and when a pet arrives at OHS shy or frightened, they have 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.
2. OHS also helps abused or neglected pets through their 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. Often humane officers are connecting struggling pet owners with lifesaving supplies or resources.
3. 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'm hoping you'll join me in helping pets from all walks of life. Please feel free to donate and look into all that OHS does (link below).
Stay healthy, happy, and sane!
