Plungers! Fur Kids Foundation wanted to say thank you for supporting the Foundation by attending the Pooch Plunge! We had such a great time with you all, and certainly hope you had a great time as well. More than 140 dogs attended the Pooch Plunge, and you helped us raise more than $700. Please be sure to check out the photos that were taken in the 2020 Pooch Plunge album on Facebook—feel free to tag yourself in the photos and share the album with your friends and family!

Did you know that FKF is completely volunteer run? That’s right! We do not pay an executive director, or anyone else who helps us, to do any of the work. Sure, volunteers with FKF love animals, but we also want to help people and we care about our community.

And, pre-order the calendar for $15; cost includes shipping!
Donations can also be taken online at https://www.furkidsfoundation.org/donate.html. If you can give us $10 a month; it matters – remember, $120 can help us cover the cost of an emergency veterinary case and medication. That's one more family and their beloved pet that we can help keep together. The little things do add up; greatly.
