Oregon Humane Society sets record of 12,000 adoptions


TREVOR: WELCOME TO KOIN 6 NEWS, I’M TREVOR AULT. WE ARE BEGINNING A PLEASANT NOTE TONIGHT. THE OREGON HUMANE SOCIETY IS CELEBRATING A RECORD-BREAKING YEAR. SO FAR,12,000 ANIMALS HAVE BEEN ADOPTED OUT IN 2018. KOIN 6’S JENNIFER DOWLING JOINS US LIVE WITH THE LUCKY PET WHO WAS NUMBER 12,000. JENNIFER, GOOD EVENING. JENNIFER: I AM WITH ONE OF THE DOGS. SARAH IS A SWEETIE. SHE DOES TRICKS. SHE IS FROM CALIFORNIA HOPING FOR A HOME. I AM GOING TO SEE IF SHE WILL CATCH THIS BISCUIT. LOOK AT THAT. LOTS OF NEAT PETS WAITING FOR A HOME. THERE WAS THE 12 THOUSANDS — 12,000TH ADOPTION. IT WAS A MILESTONE. THERE WAS A CELEBRATION THEY HAD RAMPED UP AN EVENT. THERE WERE BALLOONS AND CHAMPAGNE. THERE WAS A BALLOON DROP WHEN IT HAPPENED. THE MILESTTONE ADOPTION ENDED UP BEING A BORDER COLLIE PUPPY THAT CAME TO THE SHELTER FROM KLAMATH FALLS FROM ANOTHER SHELTER. ORGANIZERS SAID HE WAS PICKED UP IN A RESCUE VAN AND DROPPED OFF SOMETIME SATURDAY TO GET READY FOR A NEW HOME, AND HIS NEW FAMILY WAS EXCITED TO BRING HIM HOME. IT’S A BIG NUMBER. OUR PRIOR RECORD WAS 11620 AND WE EXCEEDED THAT A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND THE VOLUNTEERS SAID COME ON, WE CAN GET TO 12,000 AND THIS IS NO EASY FEAT BECAUSE MOST OF OUR ANIMALS COME FROM OTHER SHELTERS. WE’RE REAL EXCITED TO HAVE A NEW MEMBER TO OUR FAMILY, I ALWAYS TRY TO RESCUE DOGS RATHER THAN BUY THEM FROM THE PUPPY STORE OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT BECAUSE I WANT TO GIVE DOGS GOOD HOMES. JENNIFER: TO CELEBRATE THE RECORD-BREAKING YEAR, THE OREGON HUMANE SOCIETY IS STILL OFFERING AN ADOPTION SPECIAL, BUT YOU HAVE TO ACT QUICK, IT ENDS TOMORROW. FEES ARE $50 FOR DOGS, $15 FOR CATS, AND IT’S 50% OFF ADOPTION FEES FOR PUPPIES AND KITTENS YOUNGER THAN SIX MONTHS. 2018 IS ALSO THE ORGANIZATION’S 150TH ANNIVERSARY. THIS WAS A GOOD WAY TO END THE YEAR ON A HIGH NOTE. THERE ARE STILL PLENTY OF PETS THAT NEED HOMES, LIKE SARAH. LOOK HOW WELL BEHAVED SHE IS. IF YOU NEED A SWEET DOG, THIS IS A.
