Veterinary Care for Pets of People Who Are Homeless

PBO Rovers Fundraising Event

Join Us for the Pro-Bone-O Rover Awards

The Pro-Bone-O Rover Awards benefit dinner and show will be held on Saturday May 6, from 7-10 pm at Sweet Cheeks Winery. This gala event is hosted by Pro-Bone-O, and all proceeds go directly to helping provide free veterinary care to pets of people who are homeless in Lane County. In addition to honoring the best dogs in each award category, there will be a buffet dinner (vegan option available) and live music by Satori Bob. It will be a fun event, especially if a dog you know is amazing enough to win a coveted Rover!
