Thank you to everyone who came out to support Fur Kids Foundation’s first Fast and the FURriest Fun Walk! The Foundation is pleased to say that nearly $600 was raised during the event and more than 40 pet lovers walked around Dalbey Memorial Park with us to help kick off Pet Appreciation Week, which takes place June 4-10. Please check out our PAW videos featuring participants who told us what they appreciated most about their pet during the event below. And, be sure to browse through the photos taken on our Facebook page, and tag your friends if you see them!
We are also pleased to say that these pet lovers helped us make the park cleaner by scooping nearly 15 pounds of dog poo! We love making the parks in Gillette, Wyoming cleaner than when we found them. We gave away some fun HURTTA prizes to attendees and enjoyed loving up on all the dogs.
