Did you know that since September 2012, we've helped more than 785 families and granted more than $152K in emergency veterinary care?
Watch the video Fur Kids Foundation put together about giving to WyoGives today on Facebook!
Fur Kids Foundation was fortunate to get more than $3,500 in matching funds for WyoGives, and we have a goal to raise $5,000. If you give $10 it becomes $20. If you give $50, it becomes $100. And, $100 can help us cover the costs of an emergency veterinary visit and medication. That's one more family and their pet that you can help us keep together.
We're so close to our goal! Will you help us reach it?
If you can't donate money, can you give your time?
During WyoGives, we have a goal to find five more volunteers to join our pack!
Volunteers with FKF love animals, but they also want to help people and we care about our community. Many of our volunteers use their professional skills to help the Foundation raise money, reach more people, and help more families afford emergency veterinary care. The amount of time volunteers give is up to them. What does a volunteer with FKF do? They:
help take applications to help local families with emergency veterinary care
help plan and run events
hang posters about events in businesses throughout town
create fundraisers to help raise money
clean up dog poop to help keep our community safe and clean
organize storage sheds
write blogs about topics the animal community would appreciate
write thank you cards to donors or supporters
share our posts on social media or talking about the Foundation with friends and family
work on marketing items or other promotional material for events
We want people to know that any kind of support to/for Fur Kids Foundation really matters. If you sign up to volunteer and can give us an hour a week, it matters greatly. Four hours a month could help us build an email; get posters hung around town; help us set up and tear down an event, and more.
Fur kids Foundation chose to be part of WyoGives so we could raise more awareness for what FKF does, and for nearly 130 other amazing nonprofits across the state of Wyoming who do so much good for their community. 11 of nonprofits participating are from Campbell County. Should you want to give to a local nonprofit, the direct links are below. They can ALL use your support.
Your support helped us keep these pets with their families.
Many people have been laid off in Campbell County, due to changing national and worldwide energy needs and wants, and due to COVID-19 and its effects on our national and state economy. Fur Kids Foundation has seen an uptick in families with pets who need help when their pet gets hurt or ill unexpectedly.
