On Saturday, February 13th despite the weather, several hundred area residents attended the American 1 Paws & Claws Pet Expo and helped raise funds to benefit the Cascades Humane Society (CHS).
All vendor fees, concession proceeds, craft area donations, and contest proceeds were donated to CHS. CHS also received donated items for the shelter such as pet food, toys, litter, etc.
The event had a Pet Fashion show which featured animals from CHS that were available for adoption with several finding good homes. This year’s Top Dog Model award went to the lovable Lady, who sauntered down the dog walk and was most certainly a crowd favorite.
The Facebook Pet Photo Contest had over 100 entries. The winner was Connie Strine with her pups Pebbles and Izzy.
The credit union makes no proceeds, and covers the costs of all of the expenses beyond what is raised. There were also several animals available for adoption from Cascades Humane Society.
