Oregon Humane Society is asking the public to open their hearts and homes to the cats, dogs, puppies, kittens, and small animals who are looking for a home for the holidays this December.
Some of these pets have been awaiting adoption for just a few days; others have been waiting for months. Every animal at the shelter on Dec. 1 is considered a "Home for the Holidays" pet and OHS wants to place each of these animals into a new home by Dec. 31.
“Giving a pet the gift of a forever home is one of the most gratifying things you can do during the holidays,” says Sharon Harmon, OHS President and CEO. “Plus, you’ll experience the joy and love that comes with having a new four-legged best friend.”
As always, every animal at OHS who is available for adoption will stay at long as it takes to find a forever home. There is never a time limit on an animal’s stay. "Even though we work hard to make the shelter a loving environment, it's no substitute for the warmth and love a family's home can provide," added Harmon.
During the month of December, the OHS website will highlight “Home for the Holidays” pets with a special graphic. Pets available for adoption can be viewed at oregonhumane.org/adopt.
Adoptions are by appointment only and OHS is not open for public walk through. Learn more about the adoption process and apply at https://www.oregonhumane.org/adopt/
For those animal lovers unable to adopt, OHS suggests sponsoring a pet or making a tribute gift or purchasing an item from the OHS Wish List.
