Join Hood River Adopt A Dog on the evening of Thursday, October 18, for the First Annual Paws for a Cause Silent Auction and Social Event.  The event will be at The Gallery at 301 Oak Street, Hood River, from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Get ready for a fun evening of festivities with music, appetizers, and great auction items – all to raise funds for the HRAAD program and to help stray and abandoned dogs.  Tickets are $20 per person and $8 for minors accompanied by an adult, and beverages will be available at a cash bar.  Tickets may be purchased from Gorge Dog, from Adopt a Dog at the Hukari Shelter, or at the door the evening of the event.

Hood River Adopt a Dog is the volunteer group that provides care for all shelter dogs and veterinary care and adoption services for unclaimed dogs at Hood River County’s Hukari Shelter in Odell.  Adopt a Dog receives no funds from the county for services provided, operating solely on donations, adoption fees, and funds raised from events like this.  Hood River Adopt A Dog encourages you to come out, have some fun, and support dogs in need!

Lisa Wiltsie of Gorge Dog has been “leading the charge” to organize this event with the help of HRAAD team members.  They already have items committed to the auction such as vacation condo rentals, a ski package, auto detailing, and items from many artists . . . and much more is on the way!

For inquiries on this event call Hood River Adopt A Dog at (541) 354-1083 and also check out Adopt A Dog’s website at for more information about the program and the dogs.
