House of Dreams provides shelter and care for abandoned and homeless cats, with the goal of finding them permanent homes or providing them a lifetime home in our facility. We are a free-roam, no-kill cat shelter located in Portland, OR, and one of the only area shelters with facilities for Feline Leukemia positive kitties.
House of Dreams is a 501(c)(3) organization.
On November 22, House of Dreams will be hosting an evening of music and dance at the Someday Lounge in Portland. The show will feature music and dance from around the world, with the proceeds benefiting the cats at the shelter.
This week's sneak peek at the evening's performers features Negara.
Negara plays an assortment of traditional and original songs, with influences ranging from Spanish/Afro-Cuban, North African and middle-eastern, to rock, jazz and blues. They are frequently seen performing with some of the Northwest's most talented belly dancers.
Silent auction is Saturday, November 14th at the Russellville Grange Hall (12100 NE Prescott, Portland). It is held in conjunction with the Pretty Kitty Holiday Craft Bazaar; and with Second Time Around, our annual sale of top-quality pre-owned holiday items.
Auction starts at 10am, and closes at 3pm (Bazaar and Second Time Around go until 4pm).
All proceeds from the auction and the Pretty Kitty Holiday Craft Bazaar go directly to the care of the cats at House of Dreams.
House of Dreams must thank volunteer extraordinaires Mary Margaret Maitland, for once again organizing an amazing auction; and Second Time Around organizer Marion Berg, for putting tremendous time and energy year after year into this extremely popular part of the bazaar. We appreciate you both more than we can say!
We can't wait for the Pretty Kitty Silent Auction! So many good things to win!
Do you shop at New Seasons? Buy music from iTunes or books from Powells? Ever eat at Pizzicato or McMenimans?
Then check out the House of Dreams scrip program! Scrip allows you to shop at your favorite restaurants and stores, and a portion of your purchases go directly to the cats at House of Dreams, at absoluely no cost to you!
How does it work? When you order scrip from participating retailers, HOD receives a portion of the proceeds and you receive certificates equal to the cash value of your order. Scrip costs you nothing--it is the participating businesses who make a contribution to the shelter.
Go to the scrip page of our website to learn more. Funds from the House of Dreams scrip program go to the shelter's medical fund, and are used to pay for medicines, diagnostic tests, and medical treatments needed by our cats.
Carly hopes lots of people join the scrip program!
Exciting news! We are getting closer and closer to the big move into our new shelter. In the past week, commercial grade floors have been installed, more rooms have been painted, and drywall replaced.
We still need to finish painting, get some sewer work done, and pass our inspection with the city. Crossing our fingers that all can be completed by the end of October, and the kitties will move in November.
On top of all that, Knittn' Kitten is a "green" business--their inventory is made up pre-owed (but not used) fabrics, knitting needles, yarn, and craft notions that might otherwise end up in a landfill. Their low prices make sewing, knitting, beading, etc affordable even on a limited budget.
You can visit Knittn' Kitten, have a chat with Ethel (pictured), and find your own crafty bargains at 7530 NE Glisan Street, Portland.
