WOW! Thank you to everyone who came out to CAM-PLEX Park to support us today at Fur Kids Foundation Pet-A-Palooza in Gillette, Wyoming on September 10. The board of directors is very pleased to announce that supporters of the Foundation helped us raise more than $10,000 for this event this year! This is the most money the Foundation has raised for any one event. Thank you for your unwavering support and generosity. We could not have done this without you.
Photos of the event will be posted shortly on our Facebook page. Be sure to tag yourself in the photos and share them with friends and family.
We owe a lot of thanks to our very dedicated volunteers. Whether they helped us get items for the silent auction or donated to it, shared the event and status updates on social media, helped planned some of the events at Pet-A-Palooza, got vendors and sponsors, recruited volunteers, or volunteered the day of this grand event, we couldn't have done it without you. We're very lucky to have such a great group of people by our side, and to call our friends. We thank them for helping to keep families together and saving the lives of animals. You're all heroes!

Before we sign off, we need to give a hand to the businesses and individuals who help this great event happen in our community. Without their help, we couldn't help as many families with pets with emergency veterinary care. Since September 2012, Fur Kids Foundation has helped more than 320 families and granted nearly $50,000 in aid! Our vendors at the event were really paw-some, as were all the people and businesses who donated to the Silent Auction tables and the Tables of Treats and Trinkets.
A big round of applause to the businesses and individuals listed below for their support of this event and Fur Kids Foundation Pooch Plunge on August 27, which brought in nearly $1,100 as well. If you do business with any of these businesses, or know these individuals, please thank them for supporting us.
