In October 2016, Fur Kids Foundation had 18 families apply for assistance (compared to 10 families this time last year), and we were able to help 12 of those families—for a total of $2,840.74 given in aid. This is the first year that the Foundation has gone over its emergency veterinary care budget in order to help families in Campbell County, Wyoming. Below is a rundown of the cases we provided assistance to:
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 email@example.com.
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 who support us with promotions, these families are who you are helping. Thank you again for all that you do for the Foundation, and for families with pets in Campbell County, Wyoming.
