This past year has affected so many areas of our lives, yet one thing that has remained the same is the love of our pets. Amid all the changes and challenges, OHS remains committed to their mission of helping pets and people in need.
They know how to do put compassion and kindness into action for pets:
♥There are never time limits put on how long pets remain at the shelter. And when a pet arrives at OHS who may be shy or frightened, OHS has a special program to help teach them to trust people again. Big wins are the simple things, like when that uber shy dog first takes a treat from your hand or shows a wag of their tail. The really big win, however, is finding a loving home when they are ready to be adopted.
♥When it comes to helping abused or neglected pets, OHS has a Humane Law Enforcement team that is in the field investigating reports of animals who are sometimes in desperate situations. Often these days, though, humane officers find themselves connecting struggling pet owners with lifesaving supplies and resources.
♥OHS realized early on in the pandemic that pet owners needed help. Close to 100,000 pounds of pet food was delivered to other shelters and food pantries around the state, or given directly to owners at free pet food banks.
I could go on and on telling you about our ♥foster program, the support of ♥our amazing volunteers and our ♥community outreach, but I've taken enough of your time. On behalf of all the homeless pets that benefit so much from the kindness and compassion of OHS, please join me in donating to Doggie Dash and continuing the work of helping pets in need.
For a kinder world for all-
