Furry Friends Festival to benefit dogs

Citizen volunteers in association with Everett Animal Services, The Humane Society of Skagit Valley, SPOT, Old Dog Haven, Everett Animal Services, Seattle Humane Society and NOAH invite the public to attend the Furry Friends Festival, a benefit for the animals affected by January's kennel seizures in Snohomish and Skagit Counties. The festival will be held Saturday, February 21, 9:00 am-9:00 pm, at the Holiday Inn Downtown Everett, 3105 Pine St. Everett, WA. . Festival admission is $5/adult, Free for children 12 and under.

Emmy Award-winning entertainer Tim Noah will headline the daylong event with a special performance at 10:00 am. The festival begins at 9:00 am and features several talented musicians, a silent auction, an arts and crafts sale, White Elephant/Tag sale, children's activities, pet parade, animal talent show and pet costume contests. The event continues into the night with a dinner catered by the Holiday Inn at 6pm followed by a live auction at 7:00 pm. Dinner tickets are $25 and can be purchased beginning Monday, February 9th through volunteers and at www.brownpapertickets.com.

Volunteers from area shelters will answer questions, accept donations and introduce animals available for adoption. Since January 17, 2009, over 600 dogs have been rescued in raids of Snohomish and Skagit County kennels. Many of these poor dogs are reported to be pregnant. The Humane Society of Skagit Valley, SPOT and NOAH are non-profit agencies that are relying on public donations to provide the veterinary care, food, and basic needs to appropriately care for these small dogs. Costs have been estimated at $20 per animal per day.

I'm looking forward to attending this event with my son who has wanted to do something to help all those animals seized from the puppy mills.

PLEASE go and support these people, who are moving mountains to rehabilitate hundreds of dogs whose spirits are temporarily broken, but who show potential to be exceptional pets.
