Join me in supporting Doggie Dash, a fundraiser for Oregon Humane Society!
You know how much I love animals. I continue to sign up for Doggie Dash because I believe in creating a more humane society & the pets in our community need help! I hope your pets were a comfort to you through this very challenging past year. Addie Mae certainly was to me - cheerfully taking on her role as "Office Manager" when I moved to Work@Home a year ago!! She helps me get out from behind my computer for frequent walks & treats.
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.
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. Big wins are the simple things like when they first take a treat from your hand or their 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.
And I'm hoping you'll join me in helping pets from all walks of life. Please donate now!
