I just adopted my cat Ozzy from OHS this past summer. She is the best cat ever! The staff was very helpful and the volunteers were amazing. They let me meet with several cats before I made my decision with my Torbi girl. The adoption process was smooth and I really appreciate how every pet is spayed and micro-chipped before adoption. The shelter is so clean and nice, and has the highest save rate in the country! I would recommend OHS to anyone who was looking for a new furry friend.

I will never adopt any animal from here again. My partner and I lost our cat 8 months ago and for a christmas present to my partner we went to OHS to get a kitten. We both fell in love with a very sweet kitten and we had him for a month, when he passed away. Our vet told us it from something we had when we adopted him. I call OHS and ask them if they would replace him they said that they would so we went in and picked a very sweet little girl. They told us she had hair loss due to stress. We had her a week and by that time had massive hair loss. Once again we called and they replaced her with a very sweet people loving kitten. We had to take him into the vet and it looks like he will not make it. Once again it is something that the cat jad when we adopted him. I call them once again, they told us to bring him in and they would give him the medical care to try and save him. The problem is that they told us there is a chance that we might not get him back. For my partner and i this is very upsetting. Three cats in 6 months with massive medical problems. Mind you we think of our cats as our kids they go to vet often. I hope every one thinks twice about going here for a "forever" friend.

OHS helped us so much. We have 3 special needs shelter dogs and the trainers at OHS have changed our lives. We learned so much about how to train our dogs and all the things we were doing to make the problems worse. They have classes for everything and I take as many as I can! Definitely check out their classes at their website under 'pet training' > 'dog training classes'. Reasonably priced and great facility too!

Pros: Top notch dog training and pet owner education

As a former volunteer and financial supporter, I love OHS! BUT, I just adopted my first cat and by the third day she was at deaths door and had to have emergency IV's and medications. My vet said she had tapeworms, upper respritory infection and a virus that she may or maynot have caught at OHS. The virus is the most dangerous. They wanted to keep her overnight but we cannot afford the cost because it would have easily been over $1,000 after all her care. I called OHS and found out they only physically look at the animal when it is brought to the shelter. There is no additional exam or basic check up. If the animal looks sick physically then they get an exam. I have not volunteered for over 2 years and with the addition of the Vet Clinic on site, I was foolishly under the impression each animal had a more thorough exam before going out for adoption. When you adopt an animal you will receive a complimentary 30 day Shelter Care insurance policy. I highly recommend anyone who adopts an animal to call the number immediately and pay the extra $10.10 for full medical coverage for 30 days. Had I done this then my cat could spend the night in the hospital at no extra cost to me but as it is I will have to care for her at home and pray she makes a good recovery. I did buy the extra coverage but I bought it the day she went to the vet but the policy does not go into affect until 12 midnight the day you buy it. Also, the coverage is for Accidental and Illness coverage. The Accidental goes into affect by 12 midnight the day you buy it but the Illness does not go into affect for 14 days. Just be sure to ask for both to go into affect the first day. They were very helpful at the insurance company. No I do not work for Shelter Care but I wish someone would have given me this advice. Please don't let this message discourage you from adopting a pet today. Just ask good questions and don't be afraid to demand paperwork and details before you make your final decision. OHS is a wonderful organization that does so much for the animals and our community.

I love the Oregon Humane Society, if you haven't had the chance, head over to their website and check out their cat cam, it's a webcam setup in the front kitty playpen, 24 hours a day. This sheltor has really growed over the years and now it's beautiful. Now the entire shelter is a very clean environment and is brite and cheerful. They have a section for cats, another for dogs and another for misc pets like rabbits, mice, rats, birds and chinchilas. The adoption fees are reasonable and also give a discount for senior citizens, if the facility decides to enforce that, make sure you mention that every minute if you want that discount or they'll get around it, they did that to my mom. I highly recommend getting a pet as soon as possible, after Hurricane Katrina, there's tons of pets looking for a loving home.

PROS: Helpful on floor staff, animals galore
CONS: Office staff not so friendly

I've adopted a cat and a dog from The Oregon Humane Society. They have a great selection and the employees are full of information. Me and my husband went here to get a dog and we narrowed it down to three. I think we took turns playing with each of them at leaste 3 times in the play rooms. The staff didnt try and rush us at all either. It was so hard to decide but were completely happy with our choice. Their prices for cats are great. Dogs can get kinda expensive especially puppys. Our dog was 9 months old but looked like a minature horse and was a great price. The people here really care about these animals and it shows.

I recently had to contact the Oregon Humane society to find out what I could do about a wild cat! The man on the phone was very helpful and answered all of my questions, however I ended up not needing to use there services! But they are a great resource. Animals should bew thankful that this kind of place exists.

The Oregon Human Society is a great place to adopt a pet. I was impressed with how clean the facility was. There are a lot of animals to choose from which on one end is great, but on the other, it is sad. I know many people who have adopted pets from OHS and have had very happy and healthy pets. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable as well. They really worked with us to find the right kind of pet for our given situation explaining which dog would be best with children, etc. Another point is to check out their website before going. That is what we did so we knew what kind of animals were available.

PROS: Very clean, lots of pets to choose from
CONS:

I love the humane society for their kind work in helping strays animals. Last week, i took my son there to adopt a kitten. The facility there was much better than i thought. Usually, when think of animal i would expect stinking smell, nasty cages, etc. But no, everything was so neat and they're all very tidy. It mus be really hard to keep it that way with a bunch of animal. Because i have allergy, the vet there advise us what kind of kitten shed the least and what kind of fur most likely to trigger my allergy. I have no idea there was such a thing! how wonderful is it? My son's kittn doesn't have a name yet but it's really cute.

There were about thirty or or more pets at the Oregon Humane Society and what I'm amaze is how they keep it all very tidy. It's really hard to take care of all these strays animals. I went there with my son to pick out a pet. They were all very friendly (animals & staffs) the receptionist was really concern and pay attention to the detail that my son was relatively small so he may want a small dog, something that he can control and take care of. I didn't event think of that. Our trip was very smooth through out. No problem at all. Our new dog is name Ricky, because my son have no idea what to name him, he name the dog after himself!

What a great business. Saving tons of animals...giving them a shelter and food to eat until they are adopted. My friend bought the cutest kitten there.

This Humane Soceity completely dispells the stigma one usually associates with an animal shelter. The Oregon Humane Society is clean and bright. Dogs are put in very large cages, with their name/age/weight/circumstances clearly displayed on an attached piece of paper. There are at least two "playrooms" where prospective owners are encouraged to play with the animals before they adopt. Their Web site is also excellent; it is constantly updated and when an animal is adopted, their picture comes down almost immediately. There is a well-stocked gift shop, with all monies going right back to the Humane Society. This is a great place and if you're in the market to adopt a pet, definitely check it out.

PROS: Clean & bright, lots of animals for adoption
CONS: ...lots of animals for adoption...

....for sure. I adopted a kitty from the Portland Humane society two years ago. He's great. The facility is large, and clean, and obviously has quite a bit of funding compared to others Ive seen. The dogs seem to go really fast.....Ive gone in with friends on a Sat mid-morning, and most of the ones we'd seen the day before online had holds on them. This is great, of course!!! But, if you're in the market to adopt a pet, consider one of the other shelters in our area, too. There are lots of needy animals about.

In the past six years alone I've adopted three dogs from the Oregon Humane Society. The new shelter on Columbia boulevard is pleasent for both the animals looking for a new home and the humans looking for an animal companion. The staff and volunteers make sure the person looking to adopt an animal will be able to properly care for it. If you're looking to add a dog or cat to your household the OHS should be your first stop.
