“Dogs at Work” to Benefit Hood River Adopt a Dog June 22
Come out to watch dogs at work! A June 22 benefit for Hood River Adopt A Dog will feature local veterinarian and herding dog trainer Dr. Cynthia Mills who will demonstrate the herding skills of her award-winning dogs, Folly, Mango, and Krayken. See how amazing a very well-trained dog can be!
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at York Hill Farm at 5170 York Hill Drive in Hood River. Cynthia will work her dogs in series with sheep — so come for one, or stay for all. A $5 donation is suggested to benefit Hood River Adopt A Dog.
Hood River Adopt a Dog is the volunteer group that provides veterinary care, adoption services and shelter for unclaimed dogs at Hood River County’s Hukari Shelter in Odell. Adopt a Dog receives no funds from the county, operating solely on donations, adoption fees and funds raised from events such as this. Hood River Adopt A Dog encourages you to come out, have some fun, and support dogs in need!
For inquiries on this event call Hood River Adopt A Dog at (541) 354-1083, and also check out Adopt A Dog’s website for more information about the program and the dogs.
