What a Difference a Year Makes!

It’s amazing to see the progress in just a year since our building project began. Our goal is to raise $1.4 million to pay for the dog kennel building and all of the infrastructure needed to move to our new home. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we are now only $100,000 away from meeting our goal!

Koenig Subaru Sponsors Adoption Promotion

During the month of October, Koenig Subaru is teaming up with OPHS and Peninsula Friends of  Animals to help find homes for some incredible animals. To make it easier for both the animal and its future family, Koenig Subaru has vowed to pay half of the adoption fee if the animal is adopted during the week it is featured. So, adopt Orien (description below) by October 17th and you will only pay $60. You will also receive a congratulatory gift bag filled with goodies. A new animal will be featured each week.

With Your Help, OPHS Could Receive a $100,000 Grant

The Petco Foundation in partnership with Halo, Purely for Pets, recently announced its Holiday Wishes grant campaign, and we have the opportunity to receive $100,000 with your help! If you adopted your pet from the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society, you can share your story and nominate us! For more information visit petco.com/holidaywishes.

Pet of the Week

Name: Orien
Breed(s): Border Collie mix
Age: About 2-3 yrs old
Weight: About 60 lbs
Reason for being at shelter: Arrived as Stray
General info: Orien is a wonderful dog! He is calm, friendly, clean, quiet, and well mannered… We are not sure why someone would neglect/abandon such a good boy! Oriencame to us very skinny and suffering from moderate flea allergies. His hip bones and ribs were showing, and he was missing most of the hair on his butt! However, Orien is being well fed and given some antibiotics to help his skin clear up. He will make a super great companion for someone wanting a sweet and friendly dog. We are pretty sure he will be OK with other dogs, not sure about cats…
Adoption fee (includes spay/neuter, microchip, rabies vaccine, and a health check from a vet): $120
