Help a pet find a new home — and a dog receive medical attention — during a fundraiser and adoption fair Saturday.
Issaquah-based People United for Pets, or PUP, a nonprofit organization, needs to raise $2,500 to help a Chihuahua-terrier mix named Peso receive knee surgery.
In addition to the fundraiser, the organization has planned a pet adoption fair at Petco, 975 N.W. Gilman Blvd., from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday. Learn more about the event here.
PUP hopes the surgery helps Peso become a better candidate for adoption. Dr. Thomas Fry, at Cascade Veterinary Specialists, has agreed to perform the procedure.
