If you’re interested in what’s going on with animals in the Columbia River Gorge you’ve come to the right spot.

You’ll see a wide variety of topics here regarding wildlife and homeless animals – news, events and issues. I will also post animal news from areas outside the Gorge that may have relevance for this region.

I encourage Gorge-based advocates of wildlife and homeless animals, including animal shelters, to take part in this blog. The more we exchange ideas, news and events, the more we can help animals in the Gorge. Please note: this blog is a work in progress. If you have suggestions for it, please let me know.

A bit about me:

I’m a lifelong animal advocate and the guardian of several wonderful house cats over the years; my most recent are Cassie and Bailey. I adopted this sister and  brother from an animal shelter when they were six months old.

I’ve also volunteered at several pet shelters and wildlife clinics, and worked for many years at The Whale Museum in Friday Harbor, Washington.

  1. Thanks for following my blog, Tracie. Callie is our rescue dog, a shih-tzu/dachsund mix with tons of personality. She is an absolute joy – I will never buy a dog from a breeder again when there are so many wonderful dogs at rescue shelters. I’m glad I found your blog.

    • You’re welcome, Jo Ann. Yes, there are SO many terrific animals available in shelters — sadly, too many. My 2 perfect felines came from a shelter, too! Your blog — and the Blue Ridge Mountains — look very interesting. I look forward to your posts.
