The OHS Telethon returns to KATU on Oct. 5, 2017.

October 5, 2017:  You won’t believe who’s watching!

The 18th Annual OHS Telethon: Live on Thursday, Oct. 5, KATU, Ch. 2

Will you be watching too?

The biggest audience watching the OHS telethon may just be … your pets!  Cats and dogs and bunnies will be guarding TV remotes on Oct. 5, with one goal in mind: don’t let humans change the channel!

It’s the annual OHS Telethon, which means it’s time to speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves: pets who don’t have homes, pets who need medical care, pets who are victims of neglect, and pets who may just need … love.

Don’t delay: kick start the Telethon with your donation today.
