Portland, OR, June 23, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- A new partnership between Oregon Humane Society and Pet Lovers’ Home Exchange lets traveling animal lovers support OHS’ mission to rescue, heal and adopt pets in need.
Pet Lovers’ Home Exchange will donate 20% of all membership fees paid whenever someone signs-up to use its service and says that they heard about it through Oregon Humane Society.
Pet Lovers’ Home Exchange (www.PetLoversHomeExchange.com) helps members trade pet care for vacation lodging, making it easier for pet lovers to travel. You can find petsitters who will stay in your home for free while you're away, or find a free place to stay in exchange for petsitting in someone's home while they're gone.
Susan Dussault, the founder and principal of Pet Lovers’ Home Exchange, initiated the fundraiser after a mutual friend introduced her to a member of OHS’ board of trustees. “Oregon Humane Society is the largest humane society in the Northwest, and adopts more animals from its Portland shelter than any other single-facility shelter in the West coast. Its educators reach more than 14,000 youths and 2,500 adults annually through humane education programs, and it is the driving force behind efforts to improve Oregon laws that protect animals and punish offenders,” says Dussault. “As an Oregonian who loves pets, I’m delighted to help support the life-saving work of this wonderful organization.”
