Sorry but one of the organizers cannot make it, and since so few people signed up, we're cancelling the event. We do apologize for the inconvenience!
In the news today: " In one of the largest pet rescues in Oregon history, authorities seized nearly 150 dogs last night from a warehouse near Salem. The Oregon Humane Society is now evaluating the medical condition of 110 dogs taken to OHS and will be working to restore their health. A total of 149 dogs were seized by the Marion County Sheriffâs Office in conjunction with OHS from a warehouse in Brooks. The Sheriff arrested and charged the owner with 120 counts of Second Degree Animal Neglect and one count of tampering with evidence. The arrival of the rescued pets has put OHS at double its capacity for dogs. With more than 80 dogs available for adoption, OHS is urging the public to adopt a dog now and help relieve crowded conditions at the shelter. OHS is also reducing the adoption fee of all dogs one year and older to $50 through January 18."
We're going to collect financial & other "wish list" item donations to help out OHS! If you want to lend your support, please join us for a pizza lunch at Sizzle Pie and bring whatever you can to help. Then we'll do a big donation drop from PAWA to OHS.
