Join me in supporting Doggie Dash, a fundraiser for Oregon Humane Society! 🐾🐱🐶❤️
The Oregon Humane Society means so much to me because my sweet Siberian Husky Odin was a part of the Second Chance program at OHS. We adopted Odin from OHS when he was 2 years old and we have enjoyed almost 3 years of hikes and cuddles with him.
Odin now has his forever home with all of the toys he could he ever ask for, treats galore and of course, his best buddy, Athena the GSD (aka: his little sister). I signed up for Doggie Dash because I believe in creating a more humane society and giving the pets in our community the love that they truly deserve!
This past year so much has changed, yet our love of pets is constant. Even with everything that has happened, OHS is still committed to its mission and helping pets and people in need.
OHS never puts a time limits on how long pets remain at their shelter. 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 the first wag of their tail, but the really big win is the loving home they will be ready for when adopted.
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 hope 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 now!
