All-day Telethon Action Coming in October!

On Octobter 6, the pets at OHS will be sitting in the director’s chair, controlling the transmission of the 17th Annual OHS Telethon.

telethonJoin the pets on a journey to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but a dimension of kindness and compassion. Follow us on a wondrous adventure that stretches from the tiniest tabby to the largest Labrador.

There will be no need to adjust your television set. You will only need to sit back, relax, and experience the awe and mystery of a community committed to making the world a better place for pets.

It’s a world where every homeless pet finds a loving family, where every shelter pet gets the best veterinary care and where every animal is free of neglect and abuse.
