Review for Oregon Humane Society, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a 10-year volunteer and donor and can attest to OHS' focus on animal safety and care. Volunteers are supported by training programs as well as hands-on mentoring. Working with animals is rewarding in itself, and the staff at OHS is appreciative of volunteer efforts. OHS has a good reputation with Portland and Metro population.

Develop a easy to use way for new adopters to tell how it's going with their pet to share with Volunteers. Volunteers can develop attachments and it would be nice to hear about their new home

Role:  Volunteer & I have walked dogs on a weekly basis for 10 years.
