Hallmark Inn Cannon BeachThank you, Hallmark Inn Cannon Beach. This pet friendly resort donates a percentage of the fees its guests pay to include all family members in their vacation plans. It was created by Kirby Blankenship, who created the donation program based on the suggestion of a customer earlier last year. Hallmark Oceanfront Resorts is family-owned by dog lovers who currently have two dogs of their own. Please help CAA to thank Hallmark and its staff by liking and sharing its Facebook page.

Our Facebook page is growing by leaps and bounds. We’re over the 4,000 friends mark. Thanks to all of you who participate and especially those of you who share our postings!
