Pendleton - From the rescue of one dog, Friends for Paws began. Spending more than a week gaining the trust of a pregnant pit bull dumped at a fast food restaurant, friends Kellie Borgman, Angie Webster and Jenny Hooker eventually set up Pendleton’s first non-profit animal shelter.

Borgman said they had no idea what was in store when they headed out that first night, they just knew that an animal was in need.

“Someone had called and told us there was this pregnant dog loose,” Borgman said. “There wasn’t anyone else to help, so we just went out and got her.”
