Local Celebrities Campaign to License Our Four-Legged Eugeneans

There's no place like home 
It’s estimated that of Eugene’s approximately 40,000 dogs, only 40 percent are licensed. Local celebrities and well known businesses and their pooches are encouraging community members to license “their Eugenean.” Celebrities include KEZI News Anchor Matt Templeman, former U of O and NFL athlete Jordan Kent, staff of Off the Waffle, and Hairstylist and local business owner Amelia Hart.

The campaign also includes a 30 second public service announcement airing in local theaters.
