American 1 Paws & Claws Pet Expo Raises $3,700 for the Cascades Humane Society
On Saturday, April 8 more than 500 hundred area residents turned out in the beautiful weather for the American 1 Paws & Claws Pet Expo, which raised funds for the Cascades Humane Society (CHS).
All vendor fees, concession proceeds, donations, and contest proceeds were donated to CHS. CHS also received donated items for the shelter such as pet food, toys, litter, etc.
The event featured a Pet Fashion show presented by PetSmart which featured animals from CHS currently available for adoption. This year’s Top Dog Model award went to the lovable Lydia, who was most certainly a crowd favorite. New to the show stage this year was a Dog Training Demo presented by Paws and Claws Pet Care and a Dog Trick Show presented by Anytime Fitness - both of which were huge hits. Also popular this year was the Cutest Pet Photo Contest, a Facebook contest sponsored by Unleashed and Lovin’ It which lead up to the event and had more than 100 entries. Three winners were chosen, including Bunny the Horse, Ashes the Cat, and Ethel the Dog.
Paws & Claws is one of more than 15 community events that American 1 coordinates throughout the year–many of which give the entirety of proceeds to non-profit organizations in the communities they serve.
