Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter has canceled tonight’s Dogs on Parade due to the heat. The event is held annually during the Hillsboro Tuesday Night Market at the Hillsboro Civic Center plaza. There are no plans at this time to reschedule.

“After consulting with our staff veterinarian and community partners, we decided the best course of action is to cancel the event tonight,” says Animal Services Manager Randy Covey. “It’s disappointing, but our top priority is making sure that pets and their owners stay safe and healthy in this extremely hot weather.”

Staff will still be at the market to talk to people about the shelter’s programs and services. For more information, call Washington County Animal Services at 503-846-7041.
