Complimentary Holiday Photo Event a Cheering Success!

What a wonderful holiday event we had at Pawpular Companions. We had nearly 100 photos of companions taken! Happy Holidays to our fabulous customers and Pacific Northwest Animal Welfare Project!! We hope everyone enjoyed the wonderful music, food, volunteers and photographers that came out to make this event another beautiful memory! YOU raised almost $5,000 to benefit Pacific Northwest Animal Welfare Project!

A very special thank you to Cheri Scandalis, who literally transitioned the suite next door to a beautiful Winter Wonderland. In addition, we are so blessed to have many other amazing volunteers like Traci and Wayne Halvorson Johnson, Liza (Liza's Pet Spa), Julie Crispigna, and Steve Meusy (Santa) who all gave their Saturday to make this event run smoothly and to create a special experience for all. One more HO HO HO to our very talented photographers Shelby Brower Photography, Juli Lynch Photography & Jamie Hayes Swenson for sharing your talents and donating your time to our companions. We're so excited for customers to see your photos. We will phone participants to pick up their photos once they arrive at the shop. A final thank you to all who donated to our Non-Profit choice for the season, Pacific Northwest Animal Welfare Project. Your donations will be used to help many in need animals.
