Calling all of Portland's animal-lovers: once again Joe is promoting the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland. The mission of ARLGP is to provide temporary care and shelter for stray, abandoned, confiscated and relinquished animals, and to place as many as possible into responsible and caring homes. Every year this organization takes in nearly 4,000 stray, abandoned, or owner-surrendered animals, and maintains committed to providing the best possible care for these animals by ensuring they receive the love, dignity, respect, and medical attention they deserve. Joe applauds the work done on behalf of animals by this local organization, and urges you to consider attending their annual Fur Ball fundraiser, held at 6pm this Friday, June 9th, at the Aura in Portland. The event fill feature live music, dancing, and a raffle- all for a great cause. Find more about the event and the organization here. Joe hopes the event is a "ball"!
