Program areas at Oregon Humane Society

Sheltering and adoptions - in spite of the health and safety precautions as a result of the pandemic, the Oregon Humane Society ("ohs") placed 7,204 pets in 2020. The animals that found new homes constitute an overall 97% save rate. Through the second chance program, the Society saves more lives by accepting animals from shelters and animal control agencies across Oregon, California, Washington, Texas, Hawaii, new mexico and Louisiana. These shelters usually face the dual problem of too many abandoned animals and too few adopters. In 2020, 4,513 animals were accepted from 67 organizations.continued on schedule o.save rates for 2020:the Oregon Humane Society maintains data on the save rate, calculated according to the asilomar standard. The save rate accurately reflects the many options for pets that come to the shelter besides adoption - for example, animal transfers to other rescue organizations and animals that are returned to their owners. * the Society saved a total of 7,832 animals, with a save rate of 97%;* the Society saved 2,322 dogs - 97% of all dogs received by the shelter; * the Society saved 4,730 cats - 97% of all cats received by the shelter; and* the Society saved 780 small animals - 94% of all small animals received by the shelter. Length of stay for 2020:the Oregon Humane Society calculates the average length of stay ("los") by including the day of arrival through the day of disposition (adoption, transfer, euthanasia or return to owner). This includes all the time the animal was in the care of the Oregon Humane Society. * dog los averaged 21.1 days; the average los for puppies was 14.9 days; and* cat los averaged 14.3 days, the average los for kittens was 21.9 days.adoption outreach:bringing pets into the community for adoption is another way that the Society maintains such a high save rate. * a total of 27 animals found homes directly through this program; and* there were 25 events that included pets available for adoption.
Community awareness - educating the community and promoting animals and programs are crucial to helping the Society achieve its mission of finding a home for every animal. In addition to a vibrant education department, the Society's public relations and marketing department strives to promote Humane lessons through the media, special events, and real-time photos of animals available for adoption on the Society's website.continued on schedule o.in 2020: * visitors to the shelter totaled 47,344 - (on average, 131 people visited the Society each day - open 360 days); * adoptions averaged 20 per day; * the Society issued 76 media releases; * the Society had 4,030 television, radio and web news stories; * community events numbered 93, with 25 of them featuring adoption outreach; * the Society's magazine reached 33,642 readers; * the Society's website averaged 6,023 daily visitors; and* the average stay on the Society's web site was 3:07 minutes.
