All they want is a furever Home for the Holidays!
Every animal at the OHS shelter on December 1st is considered a “Home for the Holidays” pet, and OHS wants to place each of these animals into a new home by December 31st. “No one wants to spend the holidays away from friends and family, and that includes the pets at our shelter,” said OHS Executive Director Sharon Harmon.
Starting Dec. 1st, the OHS lobby will showcase a picture of all 199 animals in the shelter who are available for adoption. The lobby will be decorated in its holiday best and the OHS Animal Giving Tree will be up for anyone who wants to place a gift for a shelter pet under the tree (see the “Wish List” for needed gifts on the OHS website at oregonhumane.org).
During a typical December, OHS finds homes for 750 dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents, and the occasional bird. OHS never euthanizes animals because of space limitations, so Stella and Kanga will remain available for adoption as long as needed.
What: The Oregon Humane Society’s Home for the Holidays adoption campaign kick-off.
