Doggie Dash will be a huge block party to help OHS celebrate 150 years of love.
The Oregon Humane Society is celebrating 150 years with a special gift for the pet-lovers of Portland. Registration for Doggie Dash is free until April 15. Doggie Dash is a Portland tradition and one of the largest gatherings of pets and people in the country. The event is also the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Oregon Humane Society. The goal for 2018 is to raise close to $1 million to fight animal cruelty, heal injured pets, and find homes for pets that have run out of options. Funds raised by Dashers directly save the lives of thousands of shelter animals each year.
