We're definitely biased, but we think animals are just the best. If you agree, please tell your friends, family, coworkers, former classmates, and everyone who follows you on social media that you're helping animals in need!
Don't overthink it! Just be genuine and ask your community to support a cause that means a lot to you.
It's always a good idea to include a photo, too! So feel free to share a photo of your own pet, or help yourself to any of the graphics below! We have also provided sample email and social media templates, sharable stories, and even posters you can print and distribute throughout your neighborhood.
While animals are at the core of all we do, Oregon Humane Society serves the community in numerous ways beyond pet adoptions. Read on to learn more about our other programs and services so that you can inspire your community to donate to a cause you care about!
