An adoption fair is being held Sunday to disperse of more than 100 dogs that belonged to an Eatonville couple that died earlier this month in a homicide-suicide.
The money from the adoption fair will benefit the couple’s two young children.
The fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Yelm Veterinary Hospital, 1120 Yelm Ave. W.
Organizers are asking for a $200 donation per animal. There are 30 puppies and about 100 dogs younger than the age of 5. Breeds include Chihuahua, Toy Fox Terriers, Pekinges, Pomeranians and Pugs.
Pierce County sheriff’s investigators said Hector Estrada, 57, shot and killed his live-in girlfriend, 47-year-old Yolanda Patchin, at their Eatonville home April 3 before turning the gun on himself.
The couple operated a commercial dog breeding facility.
Veterinarians will be on hand Sunday to examine the adopted dogs and offer free vaccines.
