Oregon Humane Society Telethon

After already having been featured in two local papers, our celebrity doggie Tucker will now be on TV, too: tune in this Sunday from 1 to 5 and watch the Oregon Humane Society Telethon on KATU Channel 2.

Tucker (formerly Cooper) was part of a massive rescue effort by the Oregon Humane Society back in March, when they brought back 126 neglected dogs from Burns, Oregon.

I'm happy to report that since March, OHS has successfully found new homes for almost all the dogs, and Tucker has adjusted wonderfully to his new home. He's changed quite a bit, grown from a little 17-pound puppy to a hefty 42-pound boy – his hair has even grown back!

Just take a look at the fluffy, little fur ball he was back in March:

And how he's maturing into a handsome boy:

A BIG thank you to OHS!!! They do an amazing job, as shown by the fact that OHS has one of the nation's highest adoption rates (99% for dogs and 98% for cats!) And in case you'd like to find a furry soulmate of your own, just take a look at these adorable faces ready to come home with you:

Visit the OHS website for info on these and many other adoptable pets. Or if your home is already filled with four-legged friends, you can donate your time or money here! And don't forget to tune in for Tucker's TV debut this Sunday on KATU Channel 2 from 1:00 to 5:00 (Tucker and I should appear on camera around 4:45).
