“I have been a part of OAHS since its inception as my wife was a pioneer among the 8 wonderful ladies that “challenged” the City to transfer its operation to another, more responsible enterprise which is our Humane Society today. Animals and support of the organization is part of my DNA and part of my estate plan. I will continue to serve its needs as long as I provide value. It is my privilege.”
