I know this is minor to everyone else, but it is a great achievement, so please bear with me in this great news ~

Oregon Humane Society (Portland) set a goal at the beginning of the year to adopt out 10,000 pets - cats, dogs, gerbils, snakes, etc.

They made their goal yesterday. 10,000 critters were adopted. Never before has that many critters found a home...in 2001 9,385 critters found homes. But this breaks all records.

Congratulations to all the blessed pets and the staff who worked so hard! Great way to end the year!

Petlessness must end!

Certainly not minor -- made my night!! Thanks for sharing. Hopefully an inspiration for others around the country (for which you are planting the seed here as news travels ... especially on the Internet ) "Hey! Yes, it IS possible!"

I am so proud of them. One hundred and forty one years and going stronger than ever. One of the best things Oregon has going for it, IMO. It can be done, but it requires extraordinary dedication and a lot of people who won't take no for an answer.
