Give the Gift of Love this Mother's Day

Flowers wilt, but an OHS Tribute Gift will help thousands of animals in need all year long.

A donation in honor of your mother will go to work immediately, helping us find loving, forever homes for pets like Raylah, a 10-year-old tabby who has been in the shelter since February.

We'll even send your mom a beautiful card acknowledging your gift. Visit our Website to honor your mother today!

This month we're featuring an adoption success story from an OHS staff member!

Our Featured Pet

Featured Molly 190

Molly is an 8 year old Bichon Frise who came to OHS with 42 other dogs from an overwhelmed breeder in eastern Oregon.  

Now she'd really like someone to teach her to become an indoor companion and lead a normal doggie life. Could you be that person?

Sponsor or Adopt  Molly  today. 


From now until May 16 Catnip Body Pillows are 15% off at Best Friend's Corner, the OHS store.

The pillows are filled with cat-safe stuffing and high quality catnip. Cats absolutely love them and will roll around with them, lick them, kick them, and have an awesome time.
