Dove Lewis | Superheroes 2014

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!

All in all the event was a rousing success and it was so heartening to meet these courageous dogs who go above and beyond in providing life sustaining blood and plasma for other dogs. Consider volunteering at Dove Lewis today, every little bit helps and these fine folks deserve all the help they can get!
