OHS Adventure Pets

| Blog

After leaving our shelter, many OHS adopted pets lead adventurous lives. This week, we are celebrating OHS adopted dogs and cats living their best lives as #AdventurePets in the Pacific Northwest. 


Hoot can’t get enough of the Pacific Northwest! This 9-month-old kitty’s favorite place to explore is the Seaquest State Park. Hoot’s human learned just how awesome cats are by volunteering at different humane societies. When she laid eyes on Hoot, she knew he was the one. In their time together, Hoot’s human has taught him how to walk down a trail by throwing fir cones for him to chase. Now this adventure kitty loves everything about the outdoors, including climbing trees, bounding after bugs, and sniffing all the new smells.

Don’t let this little dog’s size fool you. Lucy, a 2-year-old Terrier mix, is a trail blazer. Whether it is a snowshoeing trip at Trillium Lake or a hike into Falls Creek Falls, Lucy is always up for an adventure with her human. Attached at the leash, Lucy and her human are best friends. Together they enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, camping and digging in the sand at the beach.

Sun bathing on the beach has gone to the cats. Milo, a 1-year-old brown tabby adopted from OHS, and his sister, Saskia, enjoy soaking up the sun at Cannon Beach. Being a true adventure pet at heart, Milo helps boost Saskia’s confidence in the great outdoors. Both cats enjoy going on kayaking and hiking trips with their humans. At the end of the day, Milo and Saskia love curling up for cuddle time.

Basking in the shade. Sniffing all the smells. Taking in the views. Quiggley likes to go the distance at his own pace. This 4-year-old Japanese Chin mix was dubbed “sweet potato” by OHS staff and volunteers due to his sweet disposition and couch potato personality. Quiggley had no idea just how adventurous he could be until he met his human. They started slow with short walks at Oaks Bottom. Today, Quiggley can hike nine miles on Mount Hood. Averaging two miles per hour, Quiggley finishes his hikes from the comfort of his very own dog pack.

Lucy & Oliver

These two OHS adopted adventure pets are having a ball at the beach. Oliver is the bark to Lucy’s wag. Oliver, a 3-year-old Catahoula, is obsessed with sticks and swimming. Lucy, a 6-year-old Chiweenie, loves naps in the hammock and is the best little hiker. These trail trekkers have visited the seven wonders of Oregon and many National Parks, including Yellowstone, Yosemite and Banff. When they aren’t exploring the forest, Lucy and Oliver can be found romping on the beach.
