For the better part of a year, board member Rebecca has been working on finding grants that Fur Kids Foundation can apply to that would help us with our mission of helping families with pets pay for emergency veterinary care. We are super excited to announce that she was able to find a perfect fit with the Banfield Foundation veterinary assistance grant. In June, we were notified that we will be receiving $3,500! Thank you, Rebecca, for dedicating your time to help us with this initiative and help us continue to save pets lives in Campbell County, Wyoming. The funding we’ve received from Banfield will help us greatly for the rest of this year. Thank you for your dedication; we couldn’t have done it without you.
Rebecca began by volunteering with the Foundation in 2013, and when a board position came open, she expressed interest. We gladly accepted her on our board. For those of you who don’t know, Rebecca is leaving us in July to join her husband, Jason, who recently got a job at Universal Studios Florida. We will miss Rebecca, as well as her two pups Zero and Izzy terribly.
We still need help finding grants to apply to. If you have good research skills, and are willing to spend a few hours finding some grants for the Foundation to apply to, please let us know.
Have you seen a volunteer go above and beyond? Let Mary or Felicia know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
