Paws in the Grove-Benefit Event

The first Paws in the Grove benefit is being held on Aug. 3 at Lincoln Park 2725 Main St., Forest Grove, Ore. This event will benefit the Forest Grove Senior & Community Center. This is a 1 or 2 mile walk run fun for the entire family. Come with the kids and furry four-legged ones of all shapes and sizes. The doggy fun run starts at 9:30 a.m. and events run until 3 p.m. Volunteers are always welcome to join in and get a free shirt for helping out.

There will be demonstrations by Deaf Dogs of Oregon. Agility dogs may be enjoying some fun play. They have a live band and food for your tummy. Doggy friends of all shapes and sizes will be in attendance to help out the cause.

We sometimes forget about the seniors in need. The Forest Grove Senior & Community Center offers many vital services to seniors in our community. However, they could not continue services if it were not for the time, money and donations from members of the community. Many of our seniors love pets and pets can help them in many ways. You and your pet can help out this time around the tickets are only $10 to $15 if you can’t walk or run, please consider a donation.

There are free gift bags and bandanas for all those participating. Plus Wild Child Pet Fashions will be there showing off the latest in pet attire. Your pet can model and be part of the show just stop at the Wild Child Tent for info/fitting before 11:30 a.m. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Carole Bigwood

My name is Carole Bigwood I am an avid animal lover. Avid animal lover of all shapes and sizes. I am the one who breaks for a squirrel or stops to save a lost pet. Yep, I have a leash and treats on me at all times. I can't wait to share some great rescue stories and some need to know health and safety tips for pets. Some of you may have seen one of my fashion shows for rescues I have every year. For years now I have been designing fashions for pets at My runway models are from local rescues and a few special guest pets. Always striving to make them as cute as can be so they will find a family of their own. My reward is to learn how many found homes afterwards. We have some great rescues in the NW. Being raised around pets livestock and little critters has given me a challenge that is rewarding to say the least. My genuine love of animals, has given me a vast knowledge of everything pet related. While my focus will be pet health related and rescues in our area, I look forward to sharing stories and articles on health and rescues that may come in handy. Making a the world a safe place for animals and humans alike. Looking forward to sharing my stories with fellow animal lovers everywhere.
