Why do you write Humaneitarian Instead of Humanitarian?

At first glance it may appear as if we’ve made a typo on our website and printed materials!

In the case of the Humaneitarian Awards, we’re coining our own term.

A Humanitarian Award honors those who promote human welfare, but as a Humane Society, we hold our Humaneitarian Awards to honor people who exemplify Willamette Humane Society’s mission of providing compassionate services to pets and people.

We generally try to bold and italicize the e so our community knows that we’re putting it there deliberately, but unfortunately the style of our website headers and urls removes our formatting at times.

We hope you’ll join us for upcoming events!
