Oregon
Humane Society

We’re honored to partner with Oregon Humane Society, an organization that finds homes for around 7,000 animals each year and trains vets at its on-site hospital.

History

Oregon Humane Society (OHS) has been caring for animals since 1886. Today, the organization shelters over 240 pets, finds homes for around 7,000 animals a year and provides future vets from Oregon State University hands-on experience at its residency program.

“We want animals in this community to be getting care. We want their parents to be able to confidently make an appointment and know that they can have whatever care is needed for their animal.”

Sarah Yusavitz

Corporate Relations Officer, OHS

Mission

OHS believes in new beginnings, protecting animal welfare and building a community of like-minded pet lovers. These principles can be summed up in its 150-year-old mission, “to create a more humane society.” The organization took its commitment to animal care a step further by partnering with Petplan in 2021.
