House of Dreams is honored to be a charity of choice for Mud Bay's 2018 Giving Tree Program running through this year's holiday season.

We have worked with Mud Bay in the past and it is always a joy and pleasure to be a part of their program. Mud Bay has a long history of giving back to the community, and for this year's Giving Tree Program, that means to our shelter kitties!

Please stop by the following two Portland-area Mud Bays to shop at Mud Bay and support House of Dreams:

Mud Bay-- Grant Park Village (3230 NE Broadway St, Portland, OR 97232)

Mud Bay-- Hawthorne (3130 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR 97214)

Other ways to help the cats at House of Dreams this holiday season:

As always, we thank you so much for your help and support, now and over the years. The shelter kitties are so grateful, and they wish you all a Happy Holiday Season this year!



2018 Pretty Kitty Holiday Craft Bazaar

Great holiday shopping for a great cause at TaborSpace! 100% of the profit goes to House of Dreams No-Kill Cat Shelter.

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year featuring handmade gifts for pets and people, a fantastic silent auction, a photo booth and raffles for great prizes!! We also have a Second Time Around sale of great quality pre-owned holiday items. There will be hot apple cider, coffee, tea and lots of refreshments!

Doors open at 10 AM, the Silent Auction closes at 2 PM, the Raffle closes at 3 PM, and we are finished at 4 PM!

There will be DOOR PRIZES.

If you'd like to help support the Pretty Kitty Holiday Bazaar, here are some ideas!

1. Craft something useful and beautiful to donate to the Pretty Kitty Bazaar, or ask a friend to do this. Deadline for donating items is Oct. 31, 2018

2. Donate Joann’s gift cards to be used by HOD volunteers for crafting for the PKB.

3. Buy an ad/sponsorship (or ask a small business) to help underwrite the cost of putting on the bazaar. Your ad will appear on our bag stuffer flyer which is given to all attendees. Contact Aliah: prettykittybazaar [at]

This is for a wonderful cause--we are a 100% volunteer run no-kill cat shelter--so please invite your friends and relatives to join the fun! Thank you as always for your continued support for the cats here at House of Dreams, where a kitty's dream can come true!
