More than 170 dogs and cats have new homes this week thanks to a Powered by Orange celebration held at the Oregon Humane Society in Portland and Heartland Humane Society in Corvallis.
Last week, both humane societies offered Pet Adoption discounts for Oregon State alums, visitors who wore orange and black, and even for orange or black animals. Animal adopters received Powered by Orange decals, leashes and other OSU-related gifts when they adopted animals.
A total of 139 animals were adopted during the promotion at the Oregon Humane Society, with another 32 animals adopted during the same week at Heartland Humane Society. For Heartland, that’s around half of the average number of animals adopted in an entire month.
