As the largest humane society in the Northwest, the Oregon Humane Society adopts more animals from its Portland shelter than any other single-facility shelter on the West Coast. OHS puts no time limits 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 finds homes for more than 11,000 pets each year


· The OHS medical team provides free and low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for thousands of pets owned by low-income families


· OHS educators reach more than 12,000 youths and about 2,000 adults annually through humane education programs


· The OHS Second Chance program brings more than 8,000 pets to OHS from other shelters around the region every year


· In the state capitol, OHS is the driving force behind efforts to improve laws that protect animals and punish offenders

You can help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 for the Oregon Humane Society by entering your dog, voting or just sharing.
