Sept. 18: Capitol Subaru Fall Fest

Join us on September 18 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a very special event at the new Capitol Subaru, located at 920 Auto Group Ave NE, Salem. 

During the Capitol Subaru Fall Fest, you can meet with Willamette Humane Society pets, browse art booths, shop for plants, and enter to win plenty of fun prizes. You can also chat with the hosts of Garden Time, Portland’s No. 1 garden show. 

We’ll have a food cart ready to serve you when you need refreshments. And bring your dog! Subaru has a new and amazing dog park that gets rave reviews from humans and pups alike. 

No need to RSVP for this amazing event. Just show up! We look forward to seeing you and your dogs. 

Nov. 12 -13: WHS Thrift Store Holiday Bazaar 

Mark your calendars! The Holiday Bazaar is returning to the Thrift Store this year, and you won’t want to miss it. 

This is your opportunity to pick up amazing holiday gifts (and a few treats for yourself), all while supporting the Willamette Humane Society. We’ll be open from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day of the Bazaar to help you. 

Would you like to help us ensure that this year’s Holiday Bazaar is the best it can be? We’re looking for donations! Bring any holiday-related items directly to the Thrift Store now, and we’ll set them aside for our special event. We’re also looking for non-holiday-related gift items like jewelry, housewares, and other special finds. If you think you have something that might be just right for the event, we’d love to hear from you. Thanks!
