New Road Ahead Project

Portland, Oregon
Oregon Humane Society Non Profit

The New Road Ahead is the Oregon Humane Society’s initiative to further their abilities to house and care for animals, defend animal rights, and keep pets and families together. The initiative is based on four cornerstone solutions to address issues impacting animal welfare: an animal crimes forensic center, a dedicated animal rescue center, a behavior and training center, and a community teaching hospital.

Facility needs tied to the initiative include a sophisticated animal forensics lab, climate-controlled evidence storage, investigation, and forensic analysis space; much-needed rescue space with the ability to deal with the immediate intake of large numbers of animals that must be accommodated from time to time due to OHS’s increased involvement in animal cruelty cases; a training center to help pets recovering from neglect and abuse; and a teaching hospital offering veterinary care especially for those with limited financial resources, so pets can remain with their loving caregivers.
