The Oregon Humane Society is a World Class Facility

In an excellent article on the Oregon Humane Society our client is lauded for their world class facility. But it isn’t the facility that gets good marks, it’s the overall organization that gets the nod by pulling all the details together into seamless organism focused not only on adoptions but also spaying and neutering, animal rescue, criminal investigations, legislation and advocacy. Here’s the money quote:

Very few shelters score 100%,  but the Oregon Humane Society has now scored 100% three times in as many scoring visits over a 10-year span.

The writer is very thorough regarding his assessment of the facility. It’s good to see citizen journalism is alive and well. Here’s the link.

Local News That Matters

Here’s our latest work for The Oregonian. We are happy to help local journalism in Portland because it does indeed matter.

When Christian Anderson III became publisher of The Oregonian four years ago, Olga Haley and I had a conversation about the state of journalism. Olga, being a former reporter was concerned about the state of local reporting. At that time it was widely believed that newspapers would no longer exist due to the disruption of the internet; Craigslist and the Huffington Post killed the newspaper man. Now that we have engaged with The Oregonian, we know that is no longer true. Reporting will survive in some form and I believe that newspapers will as well. We are still writing that story.
