Welcome

Sign up today for Volunteer Orientation!

Now that we’re settled in at our new location, we are asking all volunteers (current and new) to attend a Volunteer Orientation session. Dog and cat topics will be addressed as will volunteering at offsite adoption events.

Our first Volunteer Orientation session went great! Thank you to everyone who attended. If you weren’t able to make that session, please plan to join us on Saturday, July 30 at noon for our second session.

To register for a session, please e-mail volunteer@ophumanesociety.org. OPHS will offer volunteer orientations on the second Wednesday and last Saturday of each month.

 Pet of the Week

Name: Momma
Age: About 9 months
Breed: Dilute Tortoiseshell
Reason for being at shelter: Owner surrender
Description: Momma is a delightfully beautiful and sweet kitty. She loves attention, being petted and also being held. Her coat is super-soft and fluffy and her demeanor is much the same. As the name depicts, she was a young mom. She had her first litter at a young age and was a good mom to her kittens. Now she’s spayed and ready for her own adoption day. If you find Momma hiding under her blanket, say a few kind words and stroke her gently and she’ll come out. Maybe it was only the first few days of adjustment that made her seek refuge under her blanket or maybe that’s where she gets her best sleep. Either way, she’ll gladly interact with you if you give her the time and love. We’re told she doesn’t like other cats but that could have been related to the issue of being a protective mom cat at the time. Momma is a beautiful kitty. She’s young and wonderful and ready to be adopted.
