ASTORIA — Have some fun and help the shelter dogs and cats 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9, at the Fort George Lovell Showroom (1483 Duane St.) in downtown Astoria.

Dress up your pets for pictures with Santa or bid on raffle prizes and silent auction items. You could win a night or two at a local resort or dinner at an area restaurant, or find that perfect Christmas gift.

And don’t forget our fabulous bake sale. It features specialty cookies and holiday favorites: fudge, soft European caramels, breads, pies, carrot cake, Oregon blackberry jam, apple butter, plus doggy treats, including The Doggie Cake: a turkey version of carrot cake topped with mashed potato icing.

Looking for an experience? We have two major raffle prizes that fit the bill. Win a day with a bar pilot for two that includes a round-trip pilot boat ride to observe a pilot boarding procedure, lunch with a pilot and a tour of the office, or a day at Disneyland for four. The one day Park Hopper Tickets are good for Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park.

Need a new tablet? Our third major raffle prize is an all-new, punch red Fire HD 32 GB tablet, featuring an 8-inch HD display screen and Alexa.

We want to thank all the businesses, organizations and individuals who are donating items, time, bake sale sponsorships and space to make this a delightful community event.
