Bend Pet Expo

PetExpoPetExpo1With our gracious volunteers, Lost Dogs presented images and information to visitors at the Oregon Pet Expo on Saturday. Fumarola, the film’s mascot, waited patiently on Digby’s back while we shared our goals and fundraising efforts with the public. Our participation with so many worthy organizations involved in pet rescue, once again brought home the dire reality of unwanted pets in the United States. The Humane Society of the United States estimates between 6-8 million cats and dogs enter shelters each year; 3-4 million of those are euthanized. PLEASE, if you can adopt a pet, avoid breeders and pet shops by supporting a local animal shelter where so many are on death row.

    Vanessa, Fumarola did so well at the Expo on Saturday! She enjoyed the other dogs, and the many other people – as they also enjoyed her! Hard to believe that it was only a few months ago that she was an abandoned, petrified puppy afraid of everything. It’s heartwarming, to see how resilient these lost dogs are, and how they thrive with human companionship and love.

    Fumarola is beautiful…… How lucky he was on finding a wonderful home! I hope every dog and cat have the same lucky…
