I'm lacing up my shoes for The Doggie Dash 5k, a fundraiser for Oregon Humane Society!
You know how much I love animals. I signed up for Doggie Dash because the pets in our community need help!
When I first started supporting OHS, I didn't realize just how much they did for pets, I simply wanted to find a feline friend to accompany me through graduate school & beyond. My experience with OHS was absolutely incredible, and I was amazed by their professionalism and genuine love & care for their animals. Even with everything that has happened this year, OHS is still committed to their mission and what is best for the pets.
Did you know that OHS never puts time limits on how long pets remain at their shelter? This ensures that animals will find a forever home. In addition, they provide the opportunity for animals to be adopted as a bonded pair, which happens when two pets go to OHS and are best friends, they stay for as long as it takes to find a loving home together.
During the pandemic, OHS has stepped up to help pets and people. Even after donating all of their PPE to local hospitals and emergency services, their medical team used handmade masks and scrubs to continue to treat and heal pets.
A lot of people don't know that OHS has an onsite hospital. OHS was able to treat Walter's eye infection and injuries from his previous situation to ensure that he was happy and healthy before settling in to his forever home!
And when it comes to helping abused or neglected pets, they have a whole Investigations team that is still seeking justice for these animals and continues to check in on pets when community members call with concerns. OHS really does give a voice to the voiceless.
I'm hoping you'll join me in helping pets from all walks of life. Please donate now!
Thank you so much!
- Julia (and Walter!)
