Join Tobi & I in supporting Doggie Dash, a fundraiser for Oregon Humane Society!
We were lucky enough to adopt Tobi through the Second Chance program offered at OHS. The program allowed for them to take Tobi in and care for her as a puppy with kennel cough when other locations couldn’t. OHS was incredibly helpful during our adoption process and has continued to aid us by offering training and free behavioral advice by both email and phone. This, of course, is just a fraction of what the Humane Society does for pets.
Did you know that OHS never puts 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 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.
With all they do and all they've done for us, I try to give back as often as I can so I joined Doggie Dash this year as a fun way to donate. During the months of April & May, there will be events that you can participate in both virtually and in person to help raise money!
And I'm hoping you'll join me in helping raise money for the Oregon Humane Society!
