Remember Fur Kids Foundation's Round up for Pets fundraiser with the Gillette Dairy Queen in April 2019? Guess what: Our pawsome supporters, wonderful DQ patrons, and lovers of ice cream helped us raise more than $3,750 to help families with emergency veterinary care in Campbell County, Wyoming! Way to go.
This fundraiser was organized by our wonderful volunteer, Jill. Fur Kids Foundation wouldn't be where it is without our volunteers, and we are lucky to have Jill as one.
We also need to say thanks to Chris and Barb, who manage the Dairy Queen in Gillette, Wyoming, as well as all of their staff who asked nearly every customer who ordered if they’d like to donate $1 to the local Fur Kids Foundation. Their hard work made this fundraiser a HUGE success.
We look forward to doing this fundraiser with them again next year! We hope you stay tuned for more information about our upcoming fundraisers this summer, including the Watermelon Eating Contest at the Campbell County Fair on August 3, and the ever pupular Pooch Plunge on Saturday, August 17!
We love it when people or businesses hold fundraisers on our behalf. If you are interested in helping plan or implement fundraisers with the Fur Kids Foundation, give us a shout. We would love to support you in your efforts.
