Pendleton - Friends for Paws, the non-profit group set up after the Town of Pendleton lost animal care and control coverage last year, will participate in the annual pet parade while simultaneously holding a
pet food drive.
FFP co-founder Kellie Borgman said that the group is looking forward to the event for a few reasons.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Borgman said. “We are all very excited around here and hope that we have a good turnout.”
Borgman said that FFP volunteers will march all adoptable dogs down State Street on June 16.
“We are down to six dogs needing homes,” Borgman said “Four of those are puppies, but all are updated on their shots.”
Dogs available for adoption are all spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and micro-chipped.
“The adoption fee for dogs is $100,” Borgman said. “But if you took a dog to the vet to get all those things done, it would cost $300 to 400.”
