Share the Joy

I’m honored to include links to some local institutions which I believe help make Portland Oregon a truly special place. I believe, when at all possible, it’s the right thing to do to support our local businesses and non-profits!

Regional Arts & Culture Council

I want to say thank you to The Regional Arts & Culture Council as this website is funded in part from a professional development grant from the RACC. The RACC receives funding from a variety of public and private partners to serve artists, arts organizations, and schools throughout Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties.

City of Noses Pet Sitting!
Experienced, trustworthy, and compassionate pet care for the Portland Metropolitan Area. We treat your pets like our pets! “Candace has provided loving pet sitting services for my kitties for many years. She is truly a doll!”

Muse Art and Design
Portlanders’ enthusiasm for supporting locally owned businesses helps keep our economy strong and preserves our community’s one-of-a-kind culture. Portland’s independent art supply stores provide personalized service, sponsor local art organizations and events, and help build relationships between artists and the larger community. “I shop locally for all my art supply needs!”

The Pixie Project
The Pixie Project is a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue. They offer a variety of services to the public including but not limited to: pet adoption services, pet owner education and support and low cost and free spay and neuter and veterinary services for homeless and low-income pet owners.

Family Dogs New Life Shelter
Family Dogs New Life Shelter is a no kill dog shelter devoted to rescuing and re-homing needy dogs regardless of age, breed or history. We believe that all dogs deserve a second chance at a new life.

Cat Adoption Team
Founded in May 1998, the Cat Adoption Team (CAT) is the Pacific Northwest’s largest nonprofit, limited admission/adoption guarantee cat shelter. In June 2008, CAT opened the first pet food bank in the Portland area. Today, that food bank provides hundreds of struggling cat owners with food to feed their pet cat. About 3,000 pounds of dry cat food is handed out every month.

Cats in the City
This great local business provides cat sitting, boarding and grooming. I highly reccommend the grooming services. The prices are reasonable and it’s a great way to have your kitty pampered without a bunch of doggies hanging around to scare him/her. Rachel was a magician with my long haired Maine Coon!
