About Thomas Lamb Eliot

In 1868, Thomas Lamb Eliot and twelve leading Oregonians founded the third humane society in the United States and named it the Oregon Humane Society.

“Must do something for horses here,” Dr. Eliot noted to himself after witnessing a much-abused carriage horse mired in the mud of a Portland street. Eliot served as OHS Board President for 23 years. This tradition of pioneering spirit, compassion and dedication continues today, with enormous assistance from donors in the Thomas Lamb Eliot Circle.
