A Stray Dog's Remarkable Recovery

Bear’s road to a new life started on March 22 at the Oregon Humane Society. With a caring foster home, several vet appointments and medicated baths, Bear was ready to start searching for his forever home. On June 5 a lovely couple saw Bear's story on KOIN 6 News and thought he sounded like just the dog for them. They met with Bear, his foster parent Veronica, and OHS behavior and adoption staff. Bear responded very well to his new people, and they report that he is already a delight to have in their family. Congratulations to Bear and his new best friends!

Giving Bear New Hope

Shortly after arriving at OHS
Shortly after arriving at OHS

Bear came to us from another shelter that didn't have the resources for his extensive medical needs. We are so happy we are able to help him here at OHS.

Bear was examined by the OHS medical team, and we are treating him for bacterial and yeast infections of the skin. He seems like a good boy; he just wants to feel better. He will be starting medicated baths today and wont be available for adoption for at least 6 weeks. We will start looking for a foster home soon in the OHS network.

Your donation will go toward the feeding, medical care, and loving attention by our staff and volunteers for Bear, and other pets like Bear when they come to OHS. Most importantly, your support of OHS allows us to be ready to answer the call whenever animals are in need. Our vital work for animals is made possible by the generous support of people like you.

Amazing Pets and People

The Oregon Humane Society honored four heroes on February 23 with Diamond Collar Hero Awards recognizing pets and people for remarkable achievements. The honorees ranged from an abandoned cat who made a miraculous medical recovery to a police officer who helps animals both off and on the job.

"The OHS Diamond Collar Awards are a chance to celebrate the heroic stories that exemplify how important pets are in our lives," said Sharon Harmon, OHS Executive Director. Harmon and Matt Zaffino of KGW Ch. 8 co-hosted the awards ceremony. "These winners showed compassion, courage and a desire to help their community," said Harmon. More than 400 people attended the ceremony at the Governor Hotel in Portland, which also raised more than $100,000 for pets in need.
