It’s all about being kind, considerate and caring for both humans and animals. The OHS rescues and cares for homeless animals. While staying with us, we give these animals a temporary place to live until we can adopt them out into a new forever family. Since the OHS is a charity, we rely on donations to help pay for food, water, toys and medical care that the animals need while they stay with us.
If helping animals at the OHS is a cause you really care about – you can be a young animal advocate! The OHS is grateful for the help of young Humane Heroes just like you! Animal lovers can make a difference at any age.
Read our tips below to get ideas on how you can help raise money and help the animals. And remember that everyone can make a difference!

Pay it forward with chores! Pet sit, walk dogs, mow lawns, shovel snow, sell homemade jewelry, babysit and donate a portion, or all of your earnings, to the animals at the OHS!
Ask friends and family to donate money or supplies to the OHS instead of giving gifts or loot bags for a birthday!
Celebrate your birthday at the OHS!
This is also an opportunity for you to get creative! There are so many different and amazing ways to fundraise – these are just a few that we have seen in the past.
