Hello! It has been a while since I have posted a blog entry so here goes...
Things have been very busy with The Fund. As always we have been taking care of the pets in our programs by providing whatever medical care they need including their routine exams and vaccines as well as the odd surgery or dental proceedure that becomes necessary.
Sadly, we lost several of our precious little members this year including Mindy, Silki, Juanita, Adam, and Frisky. We were sad to see them cross the rainbow bridge but it was a joy to be able to help them for so long.
We did help place several animals over the course of the year. As we heard of pets in need of new homes we worked to help place them as best we could regardless of whether or not they were enrolled in our program.
Our "small but awesome" thrift shop has continued well into it's second year! People have been wonderful to donate items as well as purchase things. We are grateful to our volunteers who donate their time to keep the shop running. Make sure to say hello to Dave, Clare, Nancy, Bob, Charlie, Thelma, Lee, and Norman when you see them behind the counter. Sadly they will not all be behind the counter at one time as the shop is quite small so you will have to make multiple vists. Clare is now the manager of the thrift shop since I have moved out of town to Bisbee. She is doing a great job and the store looks amazing!
Keep an eye out for a nice write up about us and three other rescue organizations in the next issue of Currents Magazine. Larry Scott interviewed us and put together a nice piece describing what we do.
Well, that is all for now. We want to wish you all a Happy Holiday Season and we are grateful to all of you who help us fulfill our mission through donating your time, fostering a pet, or through your generous donations. Thank you!
