Fur Kids Foundation board members and volunteers are big proponents of shopping local over the holidays! While you're shopping this Saturday, November 26, don't forget to take a selfie at the small business you're at, check into the place of business, tag the Campbell County Chamber of Commerce and Gillette Main Street on Facebook with #shopsmall2016gillette. The pictures with the most likes will win Chamber Bucks and Downtown Dollars. Be sure to check out some animal focused local shopping options on our Resources pages.
Now, for those items that you may not be able to find in Campbell County, Wyoming, please #StartWithaSmile and use Amazon Smile on Cyber Monday (November 28) and select Fur Kids Foundation as your charity:
Amazon donates .05% of eligible purchases to the Foundation. Since 2014, FKF supporters who have used Amazon Smile have donated nearly $400 back to us, just by shopping from the comfort of your own home. Thank you!
But supporting Fur Kids Foundation doesn’t end there! As we’ve been mentioning, Tuesday, November 29, just happens to be #GivingTuesday. This is a day when people across the country will celebrate the holidays by making donations to the causes that matter most to them. Nonprofit organizations are vital to any community, and we’ve all learned over the last year that they are very important here in Campbell County. Please consider making a #GivingTuesday donation to Fur Kids Foundation this year.
Fur Kids Foundation is the only organization in Northeastern Wyoming that provides families with pets access to veterinary care when they cannot afford it. Since September 2012, the Foundation has kept more than 350 families with pets healthy and together, and granted nearly $55,000 in emergency veterinary aid. We're proud to say that nearly 75% of the money we have raised goes directly to helping families with pets locally.
For our supporters, thank you for your continued generosity and support throughout the years—it helps us continue to do more for the health of pets in our community. Be sure to check out our success stories, and please consider supporting us this holiday season: http://www.furkidsfoundation.org/donate.html
