This fantastic non-profit teaches those who don't keep their dogs indoors the ropes of keeping dogs safely outdoors. They show owners how to manage their outdoor pets and even better, host fence-building events so owners with limited means can still give their dogs safe and comfortable living spaces. And best of all, many events welcome dogs to attend as well!
With warm clothes for both you and your dog, the pair of you can take a nice winter hike up into the mountains or just down around town. Snow often creates magical environments and gives new opportunities to take great nature photos with your pooch.
The Pongo Fund is a pet food bank out of Portland. In December, when it runs, if you let staff know at participating stores when you buy dog food, you'll receive special discounts and offers that will also help donate to a good cause. Shopping indoors is a great way to give your pet a chance to check out new toys and food, gives you both something to do, and now, helps others too!
