Grimm cast boosts the animals

Cast members from the NBC series Grimm will appear at Race for the Rescues in Portland Sept. 28 at Portland International Raceway.  The event, hosted by Columbia Humane Society, will feature a timed and competitive 5K and 10K run — open to people and their dogs — as well as a more casual 1K Dog Walk and Kids Run.  Specific cast members had not been announced at press time, but Race Coordinator Melissa Cagle has been assured that “multiple celebrities will be present.”  

Race for the Rescues is one of Portland’s only timed races that allows dogs to participate with their people.  Proceeds will benefit six area animal orgs, including Project POOCH, Fences For Fido, and Greyhound Pet Adoption Northwest.  Learn more at
