As most of you Socks Dreams fans may or may not know, we are a big supporter of local charities and events. But we always find it doubly rewarding to be able to be an active participant in raising money and awareness for a great cause.This Saturday, August 24th, from 12-3pm, we will be hosting a fundraising event for a wonderful shelter called Family Dogs New Life, at our brick and mortar store. 

A few of the dogs who work at Socks Dreams are rescue or shelter dogs, so we decided that we wanted to support a local animal shelter that cared about matching their animals with the right people. We did some research and found Family Dogs New Life just down the way from our own neighborhood.

We had the opportunity to visit the shelter to take a look at the facilities, meet the operators, and see some cute dogs! We were impressed with the warmth and dedication of the volunteers who keep up the daily operations. They run a tight ship, with the safety and comfort of their dogs as the first priority. Like any non-profit animal rescue, it takes a lot of time, money, and love to run, and we are so very pleased to lend a paw!

If you would like to help out Family Dogs New Life too, you can sponsor them, from anywhere in the country at their web site

If you live in the Portland area, come by our shop and see these two beautiful dogs, Hefner and Stella, that are available for adoption!

Regardless of whether is with your time or your money, we encourage all of our fans to support a local cause that is dear to your heart. Be it animals, kids, or just someone who needs a leg up; helping others is the most rewarding.
