I first heard about this marathon running dog via The Barks eNewsletter in an article dubbed A Dog's Gotta Run by Rebecca Wallick. (Yes, I read a magazine dubbed The Bark, and honestly, you may wanna check it out.) And then I watched the video.
I also think it is amazing that three friends came together one midsummer eve with the sole purpose of sipping margaritas and laughing, but ended up establishing the beginnings of the Fur Kids Foundation.
The Foundation has been a labor of love for the board members, and we've received wonderful support from the Gillette community — both financially and with volunteers. Since we met our fundraising goal in September, after a successful Pet-A-Palooza, we have helped more than five families and contributed nearly $1,000 in aid. With the help of Animal Medical Center of Wyoming, we have given away four spay and neuter procedures and helped to educate the community of the importance of spaying and neutering their animals. And we've just begun.
