Portland, February 28th, 2014. Some furry friends were featured at Portland’s Yard, Garden and Patio Show at the Oregon Convention Center.

From the Oregon Humane Society:
For 145 years OHS has been sheltering abandoned animals, fighting cruelty and neglect, and working to build a caring, compassionate community here in Oregon. Although we have thousands of members and 1,500 volunteers, we are really nothing more than a single person saying ‘Yes, I want to help.’
Here, you can learn how to adopt a pet, report animal cruelty, lend a helping hand to animals, and much more. OHS is not affiliated with any other local or national organization and receives no tax dollars; our work is made possible only by the generosity of people like yourself.
