Cover Dog Model Search

Unleash your dog’s inner super model at the 12th annual CityDog Cover Dog Model Search. That’s right, we’re looking for our next dog to grace the cover of CityDog Magazine and raising money for animals while we’re at it.

Big dogs, little dogs, young dogs, old dogs… ALL dogs are welcome to walk the catwalk for the chance to be on the cover of CityDog Magazine. Over the years, thousands of dogs have entered the model search, allowing us to raise thousands of dollars for animal welfare organizations.

Simply come by the CityDog booth at West Seattle Thriftway any time between noon and 2 p.m. and we will take your pooch’s picture for the magazine as well as for the chance to be on the cover!

South Park Hall hosts benefit for Forgotten Dogs Rescue
Apr 13 @ 7:00 pm

Forgotten Dogs Rescue is having a FUNdraiser at South Park Hall 4/13/2018 at 7 pm

It’s a variety show hosted by the Famous Filson Sisters of Vashon Island.

About Forgotten Dogs Rescue! We are a registered non-profit and we focus on rescuing Pit Bulls out of Washington State shelters. We pull dogs, primarily, from the Yakima Humane Society as there is a Pit Bull ban in Yakima so a bunch of great dogs end up in the shelter there and have a tough time being adopted.

We are a foster-based rescue, meaning all of our dogs go into foster homes. We work with them to become better dogs under our care including covering all medical needs. Events like this one help us raise the funds to help some of the dogs that end up in the shelter badly hurt. The Humane Society knows that we will do what it takes to mend the most broken dogs so they, often, will call us to help one in need.

We pull an average of about 100 dogs a year out of the shelters (with some owner surrenders as well). We can do more with more resources and more people involved! So, thank you!!!

Check the Chip @ Lien Animal Clinic
Jun 3 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The care team at Lien Animal Clinic is reminding all pet owners in West Seattle that on Sunday, June 3rd they will be hosting a Check the Chip Event, where pet owners are encouraged to check and update the contact information registered with their pet’s microchip or have one inserted into a pet that is not yet protected. Lien Animal Clinic is hosting this event in an effort to ensure more happy endings for lost or stolen pets. This year, with support from HomeAgain, there’s a video reinforcing the importance of registering pet microchips and keeping that information up to date.

“We love stories of pets and their families being reunited after they have been missing for sometimes just a short while or in some cases days,” said Daphney, a team member at Lien. These stories would not have a happy ending, if these pets were never microchipped or if the microchip contained inaccurate or out-of-date information.

Microchips greatly increase the chances that you’ll get your pets back if they become lost or stolen, but a microchip only works if its registration information is accurate.

Our team will be available on Sunday, June 3rd from 2-4 pm:

· Check your pets chip and enrollment status tell the owner what information is contained on the microchip; and

· Microchip pets who are without

· Provide tours of the practice

We will have pizza, beverages and raffle prizes! It’ll be a woofin’ good time, you won’t want to hiss it!

To learn more about microchips and our Check the Chip Event, call us at 206-932-1133 or visit the Home Again website at www.homeagain.com/microchipping.html

Timber City Ginger Beer Celebrates 5th Anniversary with June 5th Blow-Out Bash @ Timber City Ginger Beer Brewery
Jun 5 @ 4:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Seattle’s South Park Ginger Beer darlings celebrate with a limited
release launch, whole hog roast, oysters from friends at Hama Hama,
music, and oh, so much more!

June 5th will mark five years of tall-boy and tap-ginger
love that South Park brewers Kara Patt and Kyle McKnight have
cultivated, one account at a time. Served at Farmer’s Markets around
the Puget Sound and some of Washington’s best establishments, Timber
City is growing their footprint after five years.

“We love any excuse to have a party and five years definitely merits!”
Kara said. “The celebration will bring together all the good people
that have been supportive over the years. We hold a pretty tight
relationship with our vendors, and this event gives us a chance to
celebrate–with neither of us on the clock.” A delicious selection of
sides and a whole hog will be roasted by the Girls Gone BBQ crew and
Timber City Ginger, and raw and grilled oysters from friends at Hama
Hama Oyster Farm. Highly anticipated summer flavors will also be
released.

They share the brewery with friends at Lowercase Brewing who will also
be on tap. Be sure to catch a peak of their new koji house while
visiting. The koji is used in Timber City’s adult beverages, the South
Sound Pounder (5% abv) and their Imperial Ginger Beer (7% abv).

Reservations in advance through Eventbrite, and food and drink tickets
for sale at the door. Each ticket is $6 and will work with the different
vendors throughout the party. First come, first serve until capacity
is reached. Children and well behaved four legged friends are welcome.

ABOUT TIMBER CITY GINGER BEER

Washington and its undeniable bounty inspired local kids Kara Patt and
Kyle McKnight, founders of Timber City Ginger Beer of Seattle’s South
Park neighborhood. Timber City’s original brew recipe is brimming with
fresh ginger, lemon juice, cane sugar, sage, and thyme. They also produce
a fermented ginger beer–utilizing sake yeast and koji for
fermentation–keeping products gluten free. Timber City has
their flagship Imperial Ginger, and seasonal, sessionable South Sound
Pounder flavors, including but not limited to, local apples, fir tips,
peaches, strawberries, and pears. Timber City is self-distributed. For
more information, contact info@timbercityginger.com or

Children of all ages are also welcome to bring their stuffed animals or photographs of a beloved pet for a blessing.

This custom is conducted in remembrance of Saint Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures.

Blessing of the Animals @ Resting Waters Aquamation
Oct 4 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Resting Waters, along with celebrant Danna Schmidt of Waypoint Ceremonies, invites you to our Blessing Of The Animals. Taking inspiration from St. Francis of Assisi, we ask you to bring a photo or a totem that represents your beloved companion for our altar.

“May we see the miracles of life and love in all the animals with which we share our lives:
in the cold nose of a dog,
in the warmth of a cat on your lap,
in the wondrous otherness of the hamster and the songbird,
in the graceful beauty of the goldfish.
Bless them all as they bless us.”

This event is for all animals that occupy our hearts and homes, living or past.

We hope you will join us for a blessed evening.


This event is part of Deathsploration month in western Washington.
We’re all gonna die, let’s talk about it, a little.

Deathsploration is a month-long effort to increase conversation about death and dying in Washington. Beginning on October 1 and running through November 2, community organizations and businesses in western Washington will work in partnership to create opportunities for engagement through education, art, dance, movement, death cafés, community outreach, workshops, and more.

In the United States, the topic of death and dying is not commonly paired with living. Deathsploration is an opportunity to reestablish the normalcy of death, a subtle reminder that talking about and preparing for death will not cause one’s death. Similarly, not talking about death will not keep it away. It is our hope that the exploration of death–through all the senses and on our own terms–will help people on the way to a good death.

Nightfall Orphanage – Garage Haunt Experience

Mr. Black & Easy Street Records Present:
Nightfall Orphanage – Garage Haunt Experience

“Bad Children go to The Bad Place.” This refrain was common many years ago when Nightfall Orphanage still stood. Many in the community thought it was merely an archaic form of discipline for unruly children, until they began to realize…that all the children were bad.

Mr. Black invites you to step back into the Bad Place, a gateway into the phantasmagoric realm of the Dark Reach that exists in the shadows between worlds. The radiant abyss where spectral echoes of what once was, and what should not be, materialize and take shape.

They burned Nightfall Orphanage to the ground years ago…But sometimes evil rises from the ashes, some echoes never really fade, and some shadows never see the light.

7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

October 18, 19, 25, 26, 31 & Nov 1, 2

Admission is free but we will be accepting non-perishable food donations for West Seattle Food Bank.

Mr. Black invites you to step back into the Bad Place, a gateway into the phantasmagoric realm of the Dark Reach that exists in the shadows between worlds. The radiant abyss where spectral echoes of what once was, and what should not be, materialize and take shape.

They burned Nightfall Orphanage to the ground years ago…But sometimes evil rises from the ashes, some echoes never really fade, and some shadows never see the light.

7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

October 18, 19, 25, 26, 31 & Nov 1, 2

Admission is free but we will be accepting non-perishable food donations for West Seattle Food Bank.

Nightfall Orphanage may be too scary for younger children. Parental consideration is advised.
