Join me in supporting Doggie Dash, a fundraiser for Oregon Humasimpne Society!
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? Often pets arrive at OHS and they are shy or frightened, but OHS has a special program to help teach them to trust people. The simple act of taking a treat from your hand or their first tail wag is a big win as we prepare them for a loving home.
And when it comes to helping abused or neglected pets, we 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 end up finding out that struggling pet owners just need help with lifesaving supplies or resources.
OHS realized early during the pandemic that pet owners needed help, so we 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.
I hope your pets have been a comfort to you through this very challenging time. I know my dog, Rufus, and my cat, Rosie, have brought me and my family so much joy during the pandemic.
And I'm hoping you'll join me in helping pets from all walks of life. Please donate now!
Thank you so much,
