Help SCPS Support Furry Friends – September 12-19

Virtual Event Features “Hairy Pawter” Theme

Sneak Peek:

Join Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery in support of our favorite local no-kill cat shelter and adoption agency, Furry Friends. This year, their annual auction goes virtual and has a “Hairy Pawter” theme to it. If you are a fan of the Harry Potter series, there will be lots of items to delight you. All proceeds from the event will go towards the organization’s medical costs and operating budget for the kitties. Furry Friends is an all-volunteer organization and the cats get all the proceeds.

The auction begins at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12, and will end on Saturday, Sept. 19, at 9:00 p.m. Please go to the auction website for a sneak peek at items. 

Thank You for Helping Us Support Furry Friends

Thanks to your help, Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery was able to donate $10,000 to Furry Friends, a no-kill cat rescue and adoption agency in Vancouver.  Dr. Virginia Huang presented the organization with a check during their annual dinner and fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver. 

This year’s dinner was a costume tribute to the Star Wars franchise. In the photo below, you can see SCPS Social Media Specialist Ione Janik holding her cat, BJ, along with other SCPS staff. Above, Dr. Huang presents a check to the organization.
Start practicing your spells for next year, which will feature a Harry Potter theme!

2015 Furry Friends Fundraiser Starts the End of August

Be sure to mark your calendar for the weeks of Aug. 31-Sept. 18 for our Furry Friends fundraiser. During that time you can donate $25 to Furry Friends and receive a gift certificate for a facial. Also, the week of Sept. 14-18 we will donate 20% of all Spa proceeds to the organization, which helps homeless, abandoned, and abused pets by providing foster shelter, medical care, spaying, neutering, and homes.

You can also help the organization by going to their annual fundraiser, The Great Catsby, on Sept. 19, 2015.

Finally, take a look below at the profile of one cat at Furry Friends that needs a new home or visit their adoption page to find more pets and to learn about how to adopt from this great organization.


Casanova is a very affectionate boy who loves chin scratches, and leans his whole body into your hand when you pet him. If you stop petting him too soon, he’ll bonk your hand with his head to ask for more! More details about Casanova can be found at his Petfinder profile. To view all the Furry Friends pets currently seeking homes, visit their adoption page.

Fire Hurts, Red Cross Helps

Fire remains the greatest disaster threat to individuals and families across our country. Nearly twice a day, the American Red Cross Cascades Region, which serves communities across Oregon and Southwest Washington, assists families who have been affected by home fires.

redcross-logo24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Red Cross staff and volunteers are on call to help families affected by disasters.  Financial assistance from the Red Cross makes it possible for families to have emergency food, clothing and shelter, as well as much-needed comfort, support, and hope during their most critical time of need.  There is no other organization that delivers the same services, at the exact time and place they are needed most. Last year, the American Red Cross Cascades Region assisted nearly  900 families affected by local disasters, including house fires, and provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in direct, immediate financial assistance.

At Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery, we are hoping you will donate today and help a local family when they need it most. On a national average, the Red Cross spends $1,250 to assist a family of four who has been affected by a home fire.*

Secure online donations can be made by going to:

With your gift of $1,250 or more, you will receive an incident report from a Red Cross Disaster Action Team, detailing how your donation supported a local response effort. For a limited time, as a “thank you,” you will also receive an American Red Cross fleece blanket to warm your holiday season.

Your Donation is a Gift to Your Community

The fire relief services provided by your local American Red Cross are funded exclusively through local contributions. No government subsidies. No federal funding. This means your donations aren’t just important—they’re everything. So please make your donation today. Go to: and help the Red Cross aid victims of fire.

*The national average reflects financial assistance as well as the infrastructure, staff and volunteer support provided by the Red Cross.
