And Happy Birthday to Fur-Ever Is a Promise, LLC!
We are officially 1 yrs old on July 1st!
My sincerest gratitude to you for your continued support of this doggie business. June has been packed and July looks to be following the same trend. Here are some updates in what's to come in July and beyond!
We will not be offering Adventure Times in the month of July do to boarding needs of our clients.
We will resume Adventure Times now on Fridays on August 5th and 19th. There are limited spots available for each day and we are asking that you pick one date for now to allow others to attend as well. If spots are still available on either date i will send out an email to see if folks want to double up.
Additionally, we wanted to inform you that we will not be offering walks on Fridays in the month of July and beyond. Walks are now only available Monday- Thursday please contact me directly should you need other days covered. We may be able to cover it but as a general rule we are ear marking those days for admin time. (boarding is not included in this we are still accepting boarding if you have booked and confirmed already with your dates, please disregard this)

FUN UPDATES BELOW
My Art Show Dreams Came True! (Image above)
Some of you were able to attend my art show! Thank you so much for attending! It really means a lot to have so much community support!
I wanted to share some images of what was shown. It was mostly a puppy watercolor portrait show. Your pup may have been featured and I would love to get a print to you if you like.
I am making little books about pet care and the joys of doggies. I have one zine done in a planned series of 3 books.
This month I produced a short Zine with the Independent Publication Resource Center's (IPRC)
24 hr Zine Challenge and copies are now available in color or in black and white. Color copies are $5 and black and white are $3.
Lastly, I want to share with you my dream.
I began Fur-Ever Is A Promise because while i was working in non for profit, many of my client who were facing houselessness who also had pets and were actively choosing to stay houseless due to the threat of losing their bestfriend in the process of becoming housed or entering shelter systems and treatment facilities.
I have been wanting to start a foster network for houseless, marginally housed folks to have a safe place for their beloved family members to be cared for while they get ducks in a row to be full time care givers again. And to support Queer, POC, and Low Income pet guardians to have access to Sitting, Walking and Training Services on a sliding fee basis!
We celebrating 1 year of business and are finally moving toward our first steps of making these services a reality. More to come as it develops.
Thank you again for being part of the Fur-Ever Team. Your business means the world to our community. Your community here in Portland, and together we can do more to help keep our Fur-Ever Promise, not just to our pets, but to our community.
With Gratitude and Sincere Love to you and your fur babes,
The Fur-Ever Team
