In April 2017, Fur Kids Foundation had three families apply for assistance, and we were able to help two of those families—for a total of $559.64 given in aid. In 2017, we have given $3,786.32 to families in Campbell County, Wyoming to pay for emergency veterinary care. Below is a rundown of the cases we provided assistance to in March:
The Foundation’s Board of Directors would like to mention is that if a pet crosses the Rainbow Bridge and the family has requested help, Fur Kids Foundation honors our grant process. We will help the family with the costs of their emergency vet bill even if the pet doesn’t survive.
This month shows that we are not always able to provide assistance to every family who requests help. This happens for many reasons. Sometimes the vet bill doesn’t end up being as costly as expected so the family tells us that they can pay the bill, sometimes the applicant doesn’t complete the entire application process, or sometimes the applicant exceeds our income guidelines. To learn more about our application process, please check out our Application for Assistance, and be sure to check out our Terms of Assistance near the bottom of the application. You may also call and speak with any of our Case Managers about the process at 307.363.1131 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are grateful for the dedication of Fur Kids Foundation volunteers and supporters who have helped these families stay happy and healthy, and together! When you volunteer, attend an event, or help us raise money by supporting the businesses that support us with promotions, these families and pets are who you are helping.
