Banfield Sponsors New Exhibit at Oregon Humane Society

December 12, 2013 • Portland, Ore.

PORTLAND, Ore.—Dec. 7, 2012—As part of a continued partnership with the Oregon Humane Society (OHS), Banfield Pet Hospital® has sponsored, designed and installed a new exhibit inside a cattery room at OHS’s main shelter.


Banfield’s cat colony room is entitled “Abyssinian Nights,” a nod to both a popular feline breed and the Ancient Egyptians who revered cats. The room features pyramids and a throne and is decorated with hieroglyphics of cats created by local Portland muralist, Colette Schuchardt. There are ample places to hide, perch and sleep on the many beds, providing cats with a low-stress environment that helps them put their best paw forward when prospective pet owners stop by the shelter.

To help ensure OHS’s mission of finding permanent homes for cats who are adopted, Banfield is offering 3 special needs cats free preventive veterinary care for a year. These select cats will receive an Optimum Wellness Plan®, which is a package of preventive care tailored to fit the life stage of a pet. These plans include services such as: vaccinations, twice-yearly comprehensive examinations, annual blood work and unlimited office visits, among other services.

The cats who qualify for these Optimum Wellness Plans are:

Mittens
Cozmo
Pepe Le Mew
