OSU to team with Heartland Humane Society on adoption special

09/17/2009

Corvallis, Ore. – If you go into the Heartland Humane Society during the week of Sept. 22-27 wearing Oregon State University logo attire – or even orange – you will get 25 percent off the adoption fee. The same goes if you are an OSU student or alumnus, and forget to wear orange.

Heck, if you adopt an orange or black cat or dog, Heartland will knock off 25 percent of the fee. And the first 20 dogs adopted will receive a free leash with OSU logo.

The special is part of a launch of OSU’s Powered by Orange initiative.

“Powered by Orange” showcases the positive difference the university’s students, alumni, faculty and friends are making in Oregon and beyond – with a particular emphasis on creating healthy people, healthy economies, and a healthy planet.

Heartland Humane Society is located at 398 S.W. Twin Oaks Circle in Corvallis. It will be open for the Powered by Orange promotion on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday the week of Sept. 22 (closed Thursday). Hours are noon to 6 p.m. on weekdays; noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
