Helping Our Friends at FIDO

The NWKGC we will be donating ½ the proceeds from this years online auction to our friends at FIDO.  FIDO is based in Oregon City and is “Dedicated to helping people and their pet companions stay together.”  They went throughout the state helping people and their pets during the wildfires and depleted their stock of food and supplies.  Our donation will help them this coming winter as they continue their mission of “Providing pet food to ensure that the bond between people and their pet companions is unbroken.”  More information can be found at

October ZOOM Meeting

Join us on October 17th on Zoom for our monthly meetings.  We will be selecting the 2020 NWKGC Memorial Award Recipient as well as discussing preparing our ponds and koi for the Northwest fall and winter.  Sign in details are mailed to club members.  If you would like to join as a guest, please let us know at
