Most of our rabbits were camera shy (or maybe they didn't like Sam! 🙃) but two brave little buns made their news debut on KOIN News AM Extra with Emily Burris.

Nearly 100 rabbits have recently arrived in our care. Some of them are ready for adoption, many others will be available over the next many weeks and months. Adopt a rabbit, cat, or kitten through October 16 for special adoption pricing - fee-waived for cats and rabbits, and $50 adoption fee for kittens.

This morning we had the honor of being featured in KOIN News AM Extra Takeout Tuesday segment! 🤩

We are so honored to have been a part of this wonderful segment, it still feels surreal! Our family could have never imagined where La Casa de Mamá would have taken us, this was such a beautiful experience for our family. We grew up in Oregon and remember watching in the morning with our family (especially on snowy mornings😂) we are beyond grateful to have had this opportunity.

Thank you so much to the amazing team for having us this morning! We could not have asked for a better experience at the studio 💜

Thank you to the amazing community around us, this would not have been possible without each and every one of you🥰
TRUE CRIME TUESDAY on KOIN News AM Extra - MISSING: Josh Applestill

CC: Welcome back to True Crime Tuesday. Today we’re seeking your help in locating a man who was last seen in Corbett Oregon in 2019. Josh Applestill told his family he was attending a bonfire on February 8th, 2019. He was last seen at the snow gate, after catching a ride to East Larch Mountain Road where the bonfire was being held. All of Josh’s belongings including his ID and wallet were left at his residence in Corbett, OR.
Josh was officially reported missing on February 17th. Several searches were held within the weeks following his disappearance, but those searches soon turned into a recovery mission. In May of 2019, searchers found belongings, some of which were linked to Josh. Among the belongings were a prepaid cell phone, a beanie, an ipod shuffle, and headphones. There were a few articles of clothing discovered but they were never officially linked to Josh. While police cannot rule out that Josh left town willingly, they believe it’s unlikely. A celebration of life was held for Josh in February of 2020, a year after his disappearance, though his remains have not been located. Joshua Robert Applestill was 32 years old when he went missing and would be 35 years old today. Josh is between 5’6” and 5’8”, 135-150lbs and has blond hair and blue eyes. If anyone has information about Josh’s disappearance, they are asked to call the Multnomah county sheriff’s office at 503-988-4300

Wilbur slow-walked his way out to the yard this morning for our weekly adoption segment on KOIN News AM Extra with Emily Burris and Travis Teich.
Wilbur is a chill fella looking for a family to shower him with love (and occasionally wipe away his slobber 😉). This guy doesn't need much - he loves lazy walks, snuggles, and treats. Learn more about him at hssw.org/dogs
