OHS’s Day of Giving raises more than $300,000 to help pets in need.

It was a day of compassion, kindness and inspiration. The Day of Giving took place on Oct. 4 and celebrated donors who have been a vital part of the Oregon Humane Society’s 150 year legacy.

Throughout the day, KATU-TV aired stories about OHS programs — highlighting adoption stories, new medical treatments, behavior breakthroughs, disaster response and humane education. Members of the community called, clicked and donated more than $300,000 to help OHS continue to saving lives and create a more humane society.

The stories of two very special guests were highlighted during the Day of Giving were Johnny Perez and Charles. Each received critical medical treatment at the OHS Animal Medical Learning Center.

Johnny Perez was wandering the streets as a stray and hit by a car — suffering a devastating injury.

He was transferred to the Oregon Humane Society where the medical team repaired his complex fracture and helped him heal. See how Facebook helped him find his forever home.
