Shareable Shelter Animal Stories

Tuesday, February 22, 2022

Houston

In one moment, Houston's world was turned upside down, he jumped out of a car window and broke both of his legs. His extensive injuries required specialized surgery.

Houston was tranferred to Oregon Humane Society, where our medical team ordered special pins and plates to help rebuild his shattered legs. After multiple surgeries, Houston began his healing process in an experienced OHS foster home. He recovered for months with loving care every step of the way.

Houston found his forever home in January 2022 and his new story is just beginning.

Zuko

Zuko's story began at the bottom of a dumpster. Struggling to escape, he tried to push through a drain hole but got stuck. A good Samaritan spotted Zuko’s tiny head poking out and called Washington County Animal Services. An officer arrived at the scene and worked with a technician to free the tiny kitten.

Zuko was transferred to Oregon Humane Society and blossomed. He had a safe place to receive the care he needed while he waited for a new home.

Now, Zuko lives with a loving family, which include his brother, Little Willie, who also came from OHS. They wrestle, play and cuddle together. Both Zuko and Little Willie are exactly where they are supposed to be: home.

Uma

Uma came to Oregon Humane Society through the Second Chance program. Shelter life was tough for Uma and her stress began to rise. She needed a home with understanding adopters who could manage her chronic ear condition.

An experienced staff member fostered Uma for more than a year and she blossomed in a home environment. Now, Uma is thriving.

Her adopters have helped with her ear condition and one ear is completely infection free. Her adopters are always happy to walk her, even though Uma will enjoy a walk, despite the weather conditions. She is the proud owner of a doggie sweater, coat and anything she wants because she deserves it.

Shusrik

When Shusrik arrived at Oregon Humane Society, he was shy and withdrawn. He had little socialization in his young life and the world was overwhelming.

During his six months at OHS, Shusrik began to thrive. He enjoyed playing ball, was a member of our running team and loved to snooze while snuggling with volunteers.

Shusrik was adopted to a loving family who renamed him Ozzy and have continued his training. Ozzy is living the good life and his humans take him to enjoy one of his favorite activities: running.

Hey [NAME]!

It’s no secret that I’m [INSERT ADJECTIVE] about animals. That’s why I’m taking part in the Oregon Humane Society’s Doggie Dash and fundraising for shelter animals who need our help.

This cause is near-and-dear to me because [INSERT SENTENCE ABOUT WHY YOU’RE FUNDRAISING]. OHS is special because they never put time limits on how long animals stay at their shelter. Pets stay as long as it takes to find a loving home.

My goal is to raise $[INSERT YOUR GOAL] for OHS by [INSERT DATE]. Will you please help me reach my goal?

Thank you for your support!
