Lots going on this weekend in the pet-event world and this week Jennifer highlights some of the biggies. The largest dog-beer fest happens at the Oregon coast as Rogue Ales goes to the dogs with the Brewer’s Memorial Ale Fest honoring the memory of Brewer, the beloved black lab of Rogue Brewmaster John Maier. Fences for Fido celebrates their 5-year anniversary and over 650 dogs unchained at an annual gala and the largest gathering of pugs happens at the Oregon Humane Society's Pug Crawl. A big fundraiser for the Greenhill Humane Society in the Eugene area is Bark in the Park . Other events happening over the weekend include a cat & kitten foster orientation at Multnomah County Animal Services, a bowling event supporting the Pixie Project, joining DOGPAW to walk in a parade supporting the off-leash dog parks of Clark County, a Dog Relationship Dynamics workshop and a dog celebration at Rose City Food Park.
Jennifer also spends some time talking about the importance of not leaving animals or children in vehicles and toxic algae, both even more hazardous and potentially lethal in warmer temps.
