Our annual silent auction event “Bone Soup” is coming soon! Last years event was attended by over 200 guests and brought in a little over $20,000. This year, February 28th is the date for our annual fund raiser. It is expected to attract over 250 attendees and our goal is $30,000.
Home At Last is a non-profit animal shelter in The Dalles, Oregon. Here at Home at Last no animal is ever euthanized simply for being homeless. We strive to provide homes for all our shelter animals and survive solely on donations.
Contributions from donors like you help us to find forever homes for hundreds of animals in need. From providing exceptional veterinary care and loving attention to pets to educating pet owners about appropriate care, your donation serves to forever strengthen our commitment to serving the animals and people of our area.
More information on this event is coming soon!
Thank you again for your support
What Are Therapy Dogs?
Dogs offer themselves to us with joy, unconditional love, great affection, and companionship. They can have a profound ability to touch our lives not engaged by other kinds of interactive therapies. Perhaps this is because they offer themselves in a non-threatening, wordless way that speaks love and attention. Indeed, there is no greater therapy than the love of a dog.
Animals have long been recognized as being a positive force in the healing process for injury and illness. Dogs have a calming and therapeutic effect for most humans in a variety of situations. Dogs can help with the emotional issues related to injury or illness by offering physical contact with another living creature. Therapy dogs have been used to ease sick children, soldiers and elderly. The love of an animal companion can help ease the mild stress of daily problems, assist with boredom, loneliness, and lack of control with some illness or injury. If you are interested in a possible therapeutic animal companion please contact Home At Last Humane Society.
