Join me in supporting Doggie Dash, a fundraiser for Oregon Humane Society!
Jackie and I love all animals, especially dogs and ducks. I signed up for Doggie Dash because I believe in the work of OHS in creating a more humane society. The dogs and cats (and others) need our help.
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 their mission and helping pets and people in need.
Our Louie arrived at OHS from Northern California three years ago, and only spent about a week there before we picked him up and brought him home. You may think he was lucky to have found a home so fast, but Jackie and I are the fortunate ones to have been adopted by him. Louie has been a special comfort to us through this very challenging past year.
Did you know that OHS never puts time limits on how long pets remain at their shelter? All pets are well taken care of while at the shelter, some receive special training to help teach them to trust people, but the really big win is when they are adopted into a loving home.
OHS also plays an important role when it comes to helping abused or neglected pets, they have a Humane Law Enforcement team that is in the field 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.
And I'm hoping you'll join me in helping pets from all walks of life. Please donate now!
