I hate running and Steve doesn't like doing more than 2 miles, but I'm lacing up my shoes and harnessing up Steve for the Doggie Dash, a fundraiser for Oregon Humane Society.
I signed up for Doggie Dash because the fur babies in our community need help. When I first started supporting OHS, I didn't realize just how much they did for animals. Even with everything that has happened this year, OHS is still committed to their mission and what is best for the pets.
OHS never puts time limits on how long pets remain at their shelter. And even better, 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 recently cared for an adorable Heeler with a broken leg. Thanks to the help of the shelter veterinarians and an orthopedic specialist, he is on the mend and in a foster home during his recovery time.
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!
Warmest Wishes and Kindest Regards
