A few of our virtual receptionists got together on a day off from phone answering to support our local animal shelter. As you know, one of our core values is to Create Community, and that goes for Rubys, clients, and our local Portland community, too! This weekend, the “Ruby Rascals” team and their dogs participated in a charity walk called the Doggie Dash which raised funds to help animals at the Oregon Humane Society. And of course, if you have been following us for a while, you know we have a lot of dog lovers that jump at the chance to support the Humane Society.
The Ruby team had a ball soaking in the beautiful spring day and cute pooches for a good cause. We checked out the “Best Pet Trick” and “Strangest Mutt Mix” contests, met some great vendors, and walked our dogs along the beautiful Willamette River. Most importantly, we surpassed out fundraising goal and raised over $500 to support OHS. That is enough to offset the cost of transporting 35 pets from a shelter hundreds of miles away to the Humane Society, where they get a second chance at life! We had a fabulously fun day and we felt great about supporting pets in need.
