Please join us for a fabulous day! We will start at Trask Mountain Outpost in Yamhill and end at Salem Harley-Davidson with an after party.
All bikes are welcome, and you don’t have to ride to take part in the fun! The Rockin’ Roll Cowboys will begin playing tunes at noon, Ratchet Brewery will be donating $1 from every pint sold, and all BBQ lunch donations go to HBPets, so please join us. We have 30 incredible raffle baskets, so stop by and purchase tickets while looking at the beautiful motorcycles!
All photos will be displayed at the Spay/Neuter Clinic Open House August 17!
Open house attendees will vote and the pet with the most votes in each category wins!
Gift baskets and gift certificates will be awarded to winners in categories other than *Most Photogenic (which will win the photo shoot above).
Thank you to all our volunteers for arranging photo contest awards, prizes, flyers!
*The Mini Shoot is 30 minutes, includes 14 digital images with print releases and one 8×10 print. Winner is responsible for contacting photographer and scheduling photo shoot at photographers convenience.

Remember that only clean, well groomed coats will keep your pet cool in the summer. Severely matted and dirty coats only cause pain and sores. Ace was surrendered to the Homeward Bound Pets Shelter and received an emergency body shave where a 1.5 lb mat of fur was removed from his body. Keep your pets healthy and comfortable with regular bathing, brushing, and grooming.

A BIG THANK YOU to our generous donors for stocking up the Spay/Neuter Clinic with paper towels and the shelter with bleach!
The clinic was almost out of trash bags, when a kind person snuck in and left a huge roll in the lobby!
Every time we turn around, another generous person is leaving supplies when we need them. We feel so loved!
