|The Little Bow Pup booth!|
I was honored to be invited to the event by a blog reader and was surrounded by other Portland locals such as Born Again Pit Bull Rescue, Muffinhead, Personal Beast, and Zunii Dog. Family Dogs New Life shelter was actually the first shelter that B and I looked into when we started looking into adopting a dog. We love that they are a no kill shelter and do not house their dogs in kennels, but rather keep dogs in large playgroups where they are able to interact and socialize similar to a doggie daycare setting.
The fundraising event was held at the Family Dogs New Life Shelter in SE Portland which happens to sit right next to the Springwater Corridor; a perfect location for a two mile morning walk! Over five-thousand dollars was raised for the shelter during the event.

Not only was it great to have a booth set up for the first time, but it didn't hurt that the dogs at the event were irresistibly ADORABLE! As much as we would have loved to bring Athena to the event, we just knew that 100+ dogs would have been just a little bit too exciting for her. So, she stayed home with a yummy bully stick!
