We had a great time this year hosting our Pop-Up Holiday Photo Booth at Meat for Cats & Dogs this year. The event was spread over three days and we had more than a dozen families and well over twenty pets participate. Many new fur friends were met, several laughs were had and a whole bunch of holiday awesomeness came out of it all. Here are a few of the cards we created at this years photo booth.
Today we get to meet some truly heroic Superheroes! These dogs are heroes because they donate blood that saves other dogs lives on a regular basis. The fine folks and crew over at Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital, a non-profit animal hospital here in Portland, held an event to honor and celebrate the life giving contributions that these animals made in 2014.
The event was held at the Lucky Labrador Brewing Company in SE Portland. Their back patio was a perfect location, especially considering that the rain was a coming down most of the afternoon. The beer was flowing, the food was plentiful and the dogs were socializing and having a blast. Now let’s meet some of these wonderful people and their Superhero dogs!
Today we will be showcasing a local non-profit. PAW (Portland Animal Welfare) Team provides free vet clinics for homeless and very poor individuals and their Fur Family members. It is a cause that is near and dear to me, so come on in and say hello to some very adorable fur kids!
Let’s hear right from the horses mouth what PAW Team is all about! “The Portland Animal Welfare Team is a unique non-profit that helps both people and pets – we are a unique bridge between human welfare services and animal welfare services. By providing preventative veterinary care, exams, parasite control, and vital medications for the pets of people who are homeless or living in dire poverty, we help keep people and pets together. By providing pet supplies and prescription foods we enable the homeless and very poor to allocate their own limited resources toward their basic living expenses. We help prevent unwanted litters by connecting our clients to spay/neuter services. We help families get off the streets and into housing by providing vaccinations and licensing.”
Here are some of the beautiful people and pets that got some much needed attention yesterday.
