Doggie Dash Saturday 5/14!!

2 Comments 09 May 2011

You helped us send over 5,000 pounds of food to the pets affected by the tsunami disaster in Japan, now help us keep the Oregon Humane Society moving forward in their efforts to make the world a better place for animals!

We are raising funds and enlisting team members for this year’s Doggie Dash, which takes place on the Portland, OR Waterfront, May 14th. There isn’t a second to spare and we need your help to reach our goal of $5,000! The Oregon Humane Society relies and operates solely on donations as they do not receive support from Tax dollars, the ASPCA or the Humane Society of the United States. Along with services such as Spay and Neuter Clinics for low income families, behavior support and training classes for pet parents they host community outreach events to educate the public on animal welfare and safety. Last year, their Second Chance program rehomed over 4,000 pets brought in from overcrowded shelters and their animal cruelty officers were instrumental in the rescue of 531 abused and neglected pets. None of this would be possible without donations from people, like you, who care deeply for the welfare of all animals in need.

Become a member of our team and meet us at the waterfront for a fun filled day! All team members will receive limited edition pet adoption awareness tee shirts along with goodie bags and our deepest thanks. The event is fun for the whole family as well as Fido! The festivities include a pancake breakfast for all registered participants, vendor booths, a doggie fashion show with a Best Dressed Contest open to all participants including their pups, live music and all kinds of fun dog contests! And let’s not forget the chance to get a picture of you and your pooch at the pet photo booth. Enjoy the fun run/walk with or without your dog on car free streets, or just come hang out with us!

There’s a reason why this event has been voted the #1 most popular event in Portland for pet lovers. Come see for yourself! Join our team by visiting our site through this link and you will be registered in no time. After you sign up, we’ll be in touch to make sure we get the right size tee shirt ready for you -while supplies last so register now!

Go here to get started:

If you don’t live anywhere near Portland or are just aren’t able to attend, become an honorary team member by sponsoring Castor & Pollux’s very own Doggie Dash Team!

She loves to take her dogs to the Hood River, OR and Manzanita Beach, where they can timidly test out the waters and annoy people on picnic blankets.
