The Oct. 6 Telethon on KATU was a success, thanks to supporters like you. The total amount raised so far: just over $433,000. Shelter pets are wagging their tails in appreciation.

You can donate online here. Every dollar donated helps more animals like Sparky (pictured) find a home.

OHS receives no tax dollars and relies entirely on donations to find homes for more than 11,500 animals a year. Thanks again to everyone who has donated so far.

Telethon Broadcast Highlights

Tune in to KATU, Channel 2. Telethon segments will be broadcast throughout the day on October 6. Highlights include:

9–10 am: The pets take over the entire broadcast of KATU’s AM Northwest show, which will be broadcast live from OHS.

3–4 pm:  The pets do it again, taking over the entire broadcast of the new Afternoon Live show, which will be broadcast directly from OHS.

Afternoon, Evening and Late Night News: Look for multiple segments during all KATU news broadcasts. Volunteers will be standing by in the KATU studio ready to take your calls.

Throughout the Day: Pets will pop up throughout the day on KATU, even in prime time! Keep your eyes open and your phone nearby so you can call in your Telethon donation.
