Founded in 1868 by noted humanitarian Thomas Lamb Eliot, Oregon Humane Society (OHS) is the third-oldest humane society in the nation and the oldest in the Pacific Northwest. Each year, OHS finds homes for more than 11,000 pets – more than any other single-facility shelter on the West Coast. OHS never puts a time on how long animals remain at the shelter. A pet stays available for adoption for as long as needed to find a loving home. OHS Humane Officers rescue neglected and abused animals, investigating approximately 1,000 cases annually. Additional services include low-cost or free spay/neuter surgeries to cats and dogs from low-income families, pet behavior and training, and humane education for children and youth.
Through a grant from the Grey Muzzle Organization, Oregon Humane Society (OHS) will be able to offer waived adoption fees on all senior dogs to adopters 60 years and older on Senior Tuesdays. Because of The Grey Muzzle Organization’s support, they will be able to admit more senior dogs into their shelter with the goal of finding them loving homes and families.
