Join Gordy in Helping Pets!

I'm lacing up my shoes for Doggie Dash and Gordy is putting on his best bow tie!

Everyone knows how how much I love animals. Gordy and I signed up for Doggie Dash because they need our help! Sofie, Riley and Spencer are all OHS Alumni, I adopted all three of them at different times from their shelter. OHS is the largest humane society in the Northwest, and adopts more animals from its Portland shelter than any other single-facility shelter on the West Coast. OHS puts no time limits on how long animals remain at the shelter—a pet stays available for adoption for as long as needed to find a loving home. If a pet in the care of OHS needs medical attention, the OHS veterinary hospital provides the pet with same level of care you would want your own pet to receive.

Founded in 1868 by noted humanitarian Thomas Lamb Eliot, OHS is the fourth-oldest humane society in the nation. Eliot initially established OHS to stop the neglect and abuse of draft animals. The mission expanded to include companion animals and, until 1933, orphaned children.

Did you know that OHS never puts time limits on how long pets remain at their shelter? What really touches my heart is when two pets go to OHS and are best friends, they stay for as long as it takes to find a loving home together. 

A lot of people don't know that OHS has an onsite hospital. OHS recently cared for an adorable shepherd mix who was hit by a car and received a lifesaving leg surgery. 

And when it comes to disasters, OHS is also there to help pets. They even drove a van down to California and took in cats from areas affected by the Camp Fire. 

I'm hoping you'll join me in helping pets from all walks of life. Please donate now! 

If you are local and want to walk with Gordy and me, let me know as we would love to have you join us!

Thank you so much!
