A Day of Giving to Pets in Need

It was a day of giving back, celebrating our love for pets and working together to create a More Humane Society.

On October 2, the animal-loving community stepped up in a big way — raising nearly $270,000 for shelter pets during Oregon Humane Society’s Day of Giving. Thanks to our generous sponsors, all gifts were matched up to $50,000.

Missed the match? It’s not too late to give! Donate now to save lives today.

The newsroom at FOX 12 went to the dogs (and puppies and kittens) for the day. Special reports aired in every newscast and viewers were encouraged to call in and make a gift. During Good Day Oregon, host Kimberly Maus shared photos of her OHS alum, Rodeo. FOX 12 reporter Brenna Kelly shared the story of how she met her dog Mia while she was at OHS covering a Second Chance intake.

Those who came to the shelter were treated to the ultimate shelter celebration during our Day of Giving Open House. Attendees met the staff members behind our life-saving programs, participated in training demonstrations and behind-the-scenes tours, and — best of all — cuddled with kittens in our Cat Cafe.

Oregon Humane Society is the Northwest’s oldest and largest humane society, and receives no government funds for its adoption, education and animal rescue programs. This life-saving work is only made possible thanks to our generous donors.
