Vancouver, November 6th. Animal lovers united to raise money at their PINS FOR PETS Bowling Event at Allen Crosley Lanes in Vancouver. Their mission was to help the animals of the West Columbia Gorge Humane Society by offsetting high medical costs so that animals don’t face euthanization.
Raffles and door prizes added to the fun.
West Columbia Gorge Humane Society is a no-kill, independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal shelter established in 1994. Its programs and services are carried out by a mostly volunteer staff dedicated to caring for animals and finding loving homes for each one. It operates an extensive foster homes program, a cat shelter and a dog shelter located at the Port of Washougal, Washington, and a Trap-Neuter-Return program (TNR) for feral cats living in the local area.
Clark, Skamania, and Multnomah County residents place thousands of calls for help to the shelters each year. Staff and volunteers respond to every one, offering advice and assistance with pet problems with the goal of helping keep the animals with their current owners. If a person must give up his/her pet, the West Columbia Gorge Humane Society takes in the animal as long as it has staff and space available.
