OHS supports the Tri-City Animal Shelter by providing occasional volunteers for special projects, collaborating with shelter administration, and helping to reduce shelter intake with our TNR, spay-neuter, special assistance, and kitten foster-adopt programs.

Both organizations share the goal of helping animals and our community. Find out more about the Tri-City Animal Shelter below.
