Oregon Humane Society Portland, July 12th 2014. The heat of the day did not stop people from attending this year’s summertime party called Fetch: Silver Edition. The party celebrated Executive Director Sharon Harmon’s first 25 years of leadership and the animal welfare group’s 145th anniversary. OHS welcomed nearly 300 people to celebrate on site with tours, cocktails and pets! Guests enjoyed a three course menu from The Vibrant Table and raised $388,000 for the pets of OHS. Dolorosa Margulis getting to know an OHS puppy up for adoption.
