Portland Oregon Humane Society
Portland Oregon Humane Society. The Oregon Humane Society is a wonderful facility near and dear to my heart as I've adopted several family pets from them over the years. "For 140 years OHS has been sheltering abandoned animals, fighting cruelty and neglect, and working to build a caring, compassionate community." If you'd like to help support this local organization, you can volunteer at the Oregon Humane Society.

Oregon Humane Society History
From their website (OregonHumane.org):
"After witnessing the brutal beating of a horse on Front Street, Dr. Thomas Lamb Eliot took action. Gathering a group of 12 prominent Portlanders on November 17, 1868, he founded one of the first humane animal welfare organizations in the country. Initially the Society focused on the plight of draft animals but within a few years advocated for the protection of children and companion animals. In fact, OHS served as Oregon's child and animal protection organization from 1881 until 1933. With the understanding that the only way to better the plight of animals was to educate humans about respect and empathy, OHS included humane education in its goals.
In 1918, OHS purchased the 10-acre parcel on Columbia Blvd. from which it now operates. This property is host to the oldest animal cemetery in the West. The original shelter constructed on Columbia Blvd. was lost a a fire in the late 1930s. A new facility was built in 1939 and housed the shelter's operations for sixty years. In June 2000, OHS opened the doors to a new state-of-the-art facility that stands on the site of the old shelter. The new shelter has the capacity to house over 200 cats and well over 100 dogs."
