Paw It Forward Cookout & Donation Collection Event (7/18/15)

One of my clients hosts an annual “Paw It Forward” event to collect donations for three of Thurston County’s rescue groups: Wolf Haven International, Feline Friends, and Concern for Animals. They would love to have you join the fun this year!

Fur Acres
6341 41st Ave NW
Olympia, WA

NOTE: Your GPS may try to route you to exit on Oyster Bay. It is easier if you exit at Steamboat Island Rd, take a left then a right at the stop sign. Our road is past the fire department and it has a turn lane. You should see a power substation on the corner. Turn left here then turn into the third driveway on the left (there is a white sign for Fur Acres at entrance).
