Dogs sport a Western theme at the Pooch and Pal walk for POPP

RICHLAND, Wash. – Some rowdy dog lovers competed in a friendly “Western” themed 5K this morning along Columbia River Trail.

Pet Over Population Prevention hosted the Pooch and Pal walk. POPP is a no-kill pet organization that helps find forever homes for homeless dogs and cats.

Veteran pooch and pall participants and strong supporter of POPP fully decked out her pooch like little cowboy.

"This is Pepper and she's on squirrel patrol, she's got her little nut cracker and her little lasso, and she's on the hunt for a squirrel!" Diane Brown said about her pup.

All proceeds to benefit Pet Over Population Prevention where all pets are spayed and neutered before adoption.

The POPP adoption facility is located at 594B Railroad Street in Richland off Wellsian Way between Atomic Auto Body and Joker Casino/Atomic Bowl.

POPP operates an adoption site on Saturdays from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. POPP adoption personnel can also be found on most Saturday and Sundays at Petsmart from noon to 4:00 PM---cats only.

You can find out more about POPP on their website.
