    Happy Tails (132)

    These dogs found their perfect forever home through One Tail at a Time PDX.

    • Here are just a few of the many AMAZING gems our friends at @scapegoat_tattoo poked into fellow dog-appreciating people this past Sunday at our first (hopefully annual) Tattoos for Tails event.  HUGE thanks to @homegrownsmoker and @veggiegrill for providing delicious food, BBQ, lemonade to help the freshly tattooed recover as quickly as possible.  They helped us raise almost $2,000 for the pups and we also were able to raise over $300 that is going to go directly to @homegrownsmoker to support them after their food cart fire mishap.  Thank you to all of you who came out on that hot Sunday to eat food, get tattooed, hang out with pups and show your support, we couldn't do what we do without all of your kindness.
