Chanukah is a time that we celebrate light. In this darkest time of year, help us bring light to nonprofits in our community. This December in our 8 Days of Giving campaign, we’re highlighting some of our favorite local community organizations. 100% of the donations collected on this page will go directly to the organization featured! Check back tomorrow to see who’s next!
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.
“Over the last several years, OHS has been one of the leading animal-welfare responders to natural and man-made disasters. Our biggest challenge right now is making sure we are able to continue our critical, life-saving work while protecting the health and well-being of our staff, the animals and the public. I can’t imagine a better team to respond to this crisis and it makes me extremely proud to be a part of the OHS family.”
– Brian August, Chief Operating Officer, Oregon Humane Society
