Pets raise funds for animal friends

Jon Pumpelli's dog 'Sunny' won the snuggliest dog award in the Pet Parade last Saturday.A Pet Parade and Costume Contest, held last Saturday at Sahalee Park, helped raise over $150 for Central Oregon Animal Friends, which is working to improve the Jefferson County Kennels.

Over 17 pet owners and their pooches participated in the event, and many had fun dressing up along with their pets.

The entry fee for the parade was a donation of $5 per dog, and prizes were awarded, including snuggliest dog, best costume, cutest pet, and more.

After the judging, the participants paraded around the park, which was also the site of the weekly Madras Saturday Market.
