An alpaca rescued by the Port Angeles-based Olympic Peninsula Alpaca/Llama Rescue looks at the crowd with curiosity during a major gathering of alpaca owners at the Grant County Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday. According to Amber Miller, the rescue's vice president and youth coordinator, about 100 alpacas and llamas need to be rescued every year, mostly because their owners die, get divorced or have another major life change that makes it impossible for them to care for the animals.
