The Oregon Humane Society is asking Oregonians to open their hearts to 279 special shelter animals who are looking for a Home for the Holidays.
One of those pets, Schmoodle (pictured at left) was rescued from neglect in Sept., spent weeks recovering in the OHS medical center, and is now available for adoption. Schmoodle's feline friend, Pattycake (below left) was rescued from the same house and is also seeking a permanent, loving home.
"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.
Every animal at the OHS shelter as of December 1st is considered a "Home for the Holidays" pet, and OHS wants to place each of these animals in a new home by December 31st.
If you don't have room in you home for a pet, please consider making an online donation to help care for our shelter animals.
While most OHS animals are adopted in a week or two, many of the Home for the Holidays animals have been at the shelter for thee months or longer.
Starting Dec. 1st, the OHS lobby will showcase a picture of all animals who were available for adoption on Dec. 1. That includes nearly 100 cats, 98 dogs and 81 small animals.
The OHS Animal Giving Tree will be up, and the public can place gifts of for pets under the tree (see our Wish List for needed gifts).
