Votion Volunteers at the Oregon Humane Society

BEAVERTON, Ore. - May 16, 2017 - PRLog -- Votion volunteered at the Oregon Humane Society (OHS) on April 22nd 2017. The purpose was to help ensure that the animals got to develop the social skills needed to find a forever home and received the attention they crave from humans. The visit consisted of a brief tour of the facility and a training session to ensure the team had all the skills necessary to interact with the animals. Once all the basics were covered, Votion got to play with the dogs in the Dog Run, which is the yard for outside activities. "It was really interesting to see the different personalities of each dog come out while we were playing with them," said Cristian, Votion's Assistant Manager. "Some were on the verge of being adopted, and you could tell others just needed a little extra attention." The last part of Votion's time at the Humane Society was spent in the Cattery, which houses the cats of OHS. The Cattery is specifically designed with cat's natural instincts in mind, providing several levels in the room for climbing, posts for scratching and toys for chasing. Two of Votion's Account Managers, Alan and Michael, got to take a peek into the cat's housing. "We had a lot of fun! The cats were purring a lot, and we got to feed them treats," recalls Alan. "Some of the cats were looking at us like 'Really? Do we look like we're hungry?' All in all, we had a very good time." Given the positive feedback from the team, Votion has already set up more volunteer visits for June and July.
