I adopted Ernie from the Oregon Humane Society's Second Chance program in August 2017, and he is by far the best $55 purchase of my life. The nominal fee for such a profoundly life changing dog inspires me to help raise money for the Humane Society each year through the Doggie Dash.

If you support the adoptions of the best mutts in the PNW, or merely appreciate that I only function in this world because of a very good boy i adopted from the Oregon Humane Society, please donate to our team: The Importance of Petting Ernest. Or, if you want to attend the best dog party in the country, please join our Doggie Dash team on May 9th, 2020 to help raise money! Anyone who joins our team is invited to Ernie's 13th birthday party and gets free dog-groans if they pet Ernie.
