CityDog Furry 500: A race to raise money for animals

Help us raise money for the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) by subscribing today to Seattle’s own CityDog Magazine.

Our goal is 500 subscriptions, which equals $500 or more to go to help the homeless animals at PAWS.

In other words, for every subscription we sell from now until September 30, we will donate $1.00 for a one-year subscription and $2.00 for a two-year subscription, with the goal of reaching 500 subscriptions and $500 for PAWS!

So, help us reach the finish line by subscribing TODAY to CityDog, the definitive dog lover’s magazine about life and living with dogs in the West!

Bring dog & cat food to the CityDog cover dog model search on Sunday at West Seattle Thriftway!

It's recently come to our attention that many of the "customers" visiting the West Seattle Food Bank live with pets, so not only are they struggling to feed themselves, but also their furry, four-legged loved ones. That gave us an idea!

This Sunday, August 16, CityDog Magazine will be at West Seattle Thriftway from noon to 3 p.m. hosting our cover dog model search (more details below). If you would like to bring cat and/or dog food by our booth, we are happy to deliver it to the West Seattle Food Bank.

Or, if you would like to donate pet food directly to the West Seattle Food Bank, they are located at the corner of 35th Avenue SW and Morgan Street.

The West Seattle Food Bank works to eliminate hunger in West Seattle so that no one in our community will go to bed hungry. Let's make sure that includes pets as well!

Dog-friendly Oregon Indie Beer Fest!

On August 29th from 11:00am to 9:00pm, the city of Portland will close down SE 9th Street between SE Belmont and SE Yamhill for the 1st Annual Oregon Indie Beer Fest. The event will feature 30+ small, independent Oregon-based brewers that brew no-more-than 1000 barrels per year, providing festival goers with exciting, hard-to-find beers.

To prepare us for this unique gathering, Green Dragon will be tapping some of these independent brews each day of the week (August 24-28) leading up to the festival. Attendees will have the opportunity to taste 60+ hard-to-find craft beers and meet their makers during the Indie Beer Fest, and will be able to take their favorites home with them in bottles, growlers and kegs to go. And if the beer is not enough to keep cool, tours of the Green Dragon's 1,040 square foot, glow-in-the-dark cooler will be held hourly.

Other activities at Indie Beer Fest include:
12:00 to 5:00 - Dog Wash
12:00 to 4:00 - Washers Tournament
11:00 to 9:00 - Free Pinball
11:00 to 9:00 - Free Shuffleboard

Indie Beer Fest is 100% dog-friendly and owners are encouraged to bring their companions with them. A portion of the proceeds from the Indie Beer Festival will benefit the Portland-based Pixie Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing animal adoption in a nurturing environment and affording access to spay and neuter services for everyone.

With a $10.00 paid admission, each attendee will receive 5 taster tickets. Additional tickets will be sold for $1.00 each.
