This week volunteers at Adopt A Dog have selected Tigger as the program’s adoptable pet of the week. They describe him as follows:
“Your guess is as good as ours about the breed on this one, but nonetheless, this good lookin’ little guy gets all the girls’ attention! Not only is Tigger perfectly cute, he’s also adorably precious!
“Tigger is about 1-2 years old, maybe 15 pounds and has a gorgeous coat he’s quite proud of. But he doesn’t like getting his picture taken and tolerates the paparazzi for only so long and then he’s off again, looking for someone or something to play with!
“Tigger used to be very timid and shy, but the other dogs at the shelter have shown him how to have fun and now he’s quick to join in the game — any game — and put on his brave face and do his best to have a blast!
“And, boy, does he have a blast! It’s so funny to watch him follow the other dogs in chase. He’s not sure about fetch, yet. But that’s OK. He’s a happy fella!”
Tigger is neutered, current on shots and micro-chipped. The adoption fee for Tigger is $185; cash or check only, please. The adoption fee is charged to help recover standard average veterinary expenditures for each dog.
Please call ahead to meet Tigger at the Hukari Animal Shelter, 3910 Heron Drive, Odell; 541-354-1083. Adoption hours are Wednesdays from 5-7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9-11 a.m. Applications may be downloaded at www.hoodriveradopt-adog.org and faxed to 877-833-7166.
The Adopt A Dog program offers 24PetWatch microchips, which include free registration into the 24PetWatch pet recovery service.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
