Spin, stay, shake

Spin, stay, shake

Last weekend we hit the Humane Society’s Dog-A-Thon down at Forst Steilacoom park. My wife put herself (and her dog) on the task and helped to raise $500 toward the no kill shelter in Pierce County. I think overall, the event raised $151,000, up $30K from last year. This was a pretty good opportunity to shoot some photos, and that I did. There are a bunch of dog-a-thon photos up on my Flickr site.


  1. Those are some great photos and, although I’m more of a cat person myself, it’s great to see so much being raised for any no-kill shelter. Bravo!

    P.S. – Did you get my email I sent your way yesterday? If not, can you shoot me a message with your email address so I can try again? Thanks!

  2. The shelter has a goal of becoming a “no-kill” organization by December 2008, and that’s super good news for cats too. Cats are great, we’ve got one cat too.

    Update from the News Tribune:

    “On Saturday, The Humane Society hosted an annual “Dog-a-Thon 2006” fundraiser and grossed $157,000. Gibbs said that exceeded last year’s results by about $35,000.”
