Cashmere Chamber of Commerce member, the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society, is hosting a community Open House on Saturday June 27, Noon-3pm to celebrate the new shelter building.
“Thanks to the generosity and support of our community, we’ve turned a vision of a new animal shelter into a reality. This Open House is our opportunity to say thank you and show our community what they built,” says Dawn Davies, Executive Director of the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society.
“The old building served us well for over 40 years, but was worn out, dark, inefficient and a sad place for visitors and animals. Our new shelter is bright and welcoming. The environment is healthier and happier. The new facility allows us to be much MORE than a shelter. Instead, we are now a resource center for pets and the people who love them.”
The Wenatchee Valley Humane Society serves 10 jurisdictions within Chelan and Douglas counties. Wenatchee Mayor Frank Kuntz and an official from the City of East Wenatchee will kick off the “Tail of Two Cities” celebration with a ribbon cutting ceremony beginning at noon. There will also be a live radio remote with Clint Strand of KOHO, tours of the new facility, free hot dogs, door prizes every hour and special adoption rates.
Founded in 1967, the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society is the only animal shelter serving Chelan & Douglas Counties, providing care for displaced pets. Other services include rescuing injured & lost animals, spay/neuter services with each adoption, investigating cruelties & finding new homes for abandoned & stray animals. The Wenatchee Valley Humane Society is
an independent non-profit shelter, relying on donations & support from the local community in order to provide these crucial services to our area.

The full Founders’ Day schedule has been released and we are pleased to partner with RLS Productions to offer a great line-up of musical entertainment including Pat Coast, the Jennan Oaks Band, and Gideon’s Daughter.
Pat Coast is a Northwest native and a serious student of blues guitar. Though proficient in many genres, including rock and roots rock, R&B, funk, country and acoustic finger style guitar. Pat’s first love remains the blues, which he began learning at age 14 with some old T-Bone Walker and B.B. King records. Since 1992 Pat’s bands have ranged from a seven piece powerhouse band with very tasty horn arrangements down to a lean and mean power trio as well as solo work. Having released five CDs receiving air play on stations from Seattle to Kentucky and national publication reviews, Pat’s taken his act on the road as a favorite request for presenters in dozens of festivals and concerts throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.
If Smokey jazz vocals are among your play list favorites, you won’t want to miss the Jennan Oaks Band. Backed by Alex Krupla on the bass, Dustin Sikstrom on the saxophone & lead guitar, and Mike Johnstone on the drums, this band features original music by Jennan Oaks . They also play a wide variety of covers from artists like Astrud Gilberto, Melody Gardot, Madeleine Peyroux, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s, Imelda May, and more. With groovy jazz inspired tunes, the Jennan Oaks band is sure to set the tone for a romantic evening. You’ll fall in love as the joining of this dynamic group is sure to produce genre favorites for every ear. So bring a date, and come join them for a memorable experience!
Gideon’s Daughter has unearthed an almost tangible chemistry on stage with their interpretation of fusing folk, jazz, country, and hints of bluegrass into some type of gypsy musical shuttle. This unlikely trio seems to thrive on abandoning their set list when a more natural ebb and flow presents itself, and it’s during these organic moments that Gideon’s Daughter will surprise even the most reserved listener when he or she glances down to observe their feet and hands tapping to the music.
