Every year the Humane Society of Tacoma & Pierce County has a sponsored walk for homeless pets.
This year’s walk is Saturday, July 26 at the Fort Steilacoom County Park at 8:30am.
You are encouraged to walk with your dog and collect sponsors to help raise funds for dogs in need, or if you can not walk and would still like to contribute, (however small, every $ helps), Yelm Travel owner Elizabeth Felix invites you to sponsor her dogs Abby and Wesley in walking.
If you can spare a donation, please write your check to “The Humane Society” and either mail to :
P. O. BOX 730
Yelm, WA. 98597
or drop by the Yelm Travel office on Creek Street, behind the Yelm Post Office, in the same building with the Chinese Wok.
Says Elizabeth, “Our dogs, yours and mine are the lucky ones, but there are many that need help.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Elizabeth, Abby and Wesley”

Rainier animal shelter improving
“About a month ago the City of Rainier updated its animal control ordinance.
Among the changes, Rainier approved a life-long dog license and an official no-kill status for their shelter.
Getting the shelter to its current status, among other improvements, has been a five-year process for public works employee Tony Schall.
When Schall took on the project of improving Rainiers shelter, he said the only facility they had was a cement slab and portable dog kennels,” quoting the Nisqually Valley News.
IF RAINIER CAN DO THIS, WHY CAN’T YELM?
