There is so much for Fur Kids Foundation to be thankful for this year. We’ve held five tremendously successful events—including the Spay Day Drawing, Pics for Pets, Paws for a Cause, Pet-A-Palooza, and Holiday Portraits with the Grinch. We were nominated for, and received, a Hometown Hero Award from the American Red Cross. We’ve seen Yappy Hours grow and help people’s pets with socialization. And, we’ve received a very warm outpouring of support from our community. Because of all this, we’ve been able to help more than 20 families in Campbell County, granting more than $5,000 in aid. We couldn’t have done any of it without the help of our donors, volunteers, and supporters.
Tomorrow, while we’re eating our delicious Thanksgiving Day feast, the Fur Kids Foundation board gives thanks to you. Happy Thanksgiving!
Psst: Don’t miss our Thanksgiving blog on what not to feed your pet, Don't Let Your Pet Gobble Gobble Some Items on Your Thanksgiving Day Table.
Who's excited for Thanksgiving? I know we are at Fur Kids Foundation! Wake up early to get that big ol' bird cooking, turn on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and later watch some football. If it snows, maybe I'll get the family together for a quick game of touch football to work up an appetite for all that food I'm gonna shovel in my mouth.
And then we'll set the table, dish out all the food and get ready to dig in. Chances are we'll also be stumbling over at least one over eager fur kid who's waiting for that one moment when she can snatch the turkey from your plate. But, before we allow you to let that happen, we want to make you aware of some foods that may not be so good for your four legged buddy. We wanted to share with you this Dogster article, Is It Safe for Dogs to Share Thanksgiving Feasts?, as it offered some great information on all the main dishes from turkey and stuffing to mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce, and a few others mixed in. And, if you're more of a visual person, check out the infographics (we love infographics), also supplied by Dogster, below.
