  • Who are the pets featured in the event invitation and website?
    The artistic drawings featured in the "Raise the Woof" 2023 logo are detailed hand drawings of pets who were especially meaningful to two of our supporters. Willie, is a terrier who passed in 2022, was part of Lollie and Alan Eidsness's family. He was a feisty fella who lived a long and happy life with Lollie and Alan. Zipper was a rescue cat who became especially meaningful to his adopted family at Pet Haven pet rescue. Nominated by Kerry D'Amato, Zipper was a beautiful cat who left us too soon. Mission Animal Hospital commissioned artist and Mission veterinary assistant McKenzie Eggersgluss to create beautiful detailed drawings of these special pets. You can see more of her work on her Instagram.
