Current Adoption Specials at OHS

OHS offers a variety of adoption specials throughout the year. See our current specials below, and check back to see new or different ones as they become available.

Find Love at Any Age

Every Tuesday OHS offers an adoption special for people age 60 and up. A select group of approximately 20 pets (cats and dogs) will be available for adoption to seniors at no charge every Tuesday.

OHS recognizes that a pet can not only make you feel young at heart, but pets may help keep you healthy. Researchers have documented that living with pets is associated with lower blood pressure and less anxiety.

OHS will select up to 20 pets each week by looking at personality traits that will be a good fit for a mature household. If a perfect match cannot be found among the 20 free pets, all other cats and dogs at the shelter will be $50 off the listed adoption fee (only for individuals 60 years of age or older). This special cannot be combined with other offers.

All dogs 7 years and older are free for people age 60 and up.
