On Friday, August 28 Bend Spay+Neuter Project will host the sixth annual Furball fundraising event at Aspen Hall in Shevlin Park. This year’s theme is Dogs on the Catwalk and will feature a doggie fashion show among other attractions.

The event is presented by Birkenstock of Bend and Bend Veterinary Clinic. Other sponsors include
