Pet-A-Palooza, Fur Kids Foundation's largest fundraising event of the year, was PAWSOME—with nearly $6,000 raised to help families with pets who need access to emergency veterinary care! There were more than 300 attendees with their dogs at the event! We saw an increase in contestants at our attractions with 17 pets registered for Pawject Runway and 15 contestants for the Small Dog Showdown. And, our new Table of Treats and Trinkets sold out half-way through the event!

Discs are available at Photo Imaging Center Gillette, located at 900 Camel Plaza, Suite C. You can print the pictures of your choice!
This event is very important to Fur Kids Foundation, as it’s the largest fundraiser that we hold. The volunteer board wants you to know that more than 80 percent of the funds raised at our events and fundraisers go toward helping families with pets with emergency veterinary care. Since 2012, we’ve helped more than 215 families, and we’ve granted more than $32,000 in aid. None of this is possible without your support.
We are truly grateful to the following businesses and individuals for their help and generosity at Pet-A-Palooza this year.
