Coronavirus. This virus, its effects on people and economies is all over the news now-a-days. It’s also why we are making this post right now.
We’ve been told the City and County are interested in allowing Pooch Plunge to take place on Saturday, August 15. And, we are cautiously optimistic that we can hold the event. Holding events like Pooch Plunge is how Fur Kids Foundation can make money so we can continue to help Campbell County, Wyoming families afford emergency veterinary care.
We are working on ways to keep people safe. We are purchasing face shields for our volunteers, setting up ways for our community to register and pay online, creating hand sanitizing stations, and more. Please know that safe physical (social) distancing and wearing face masks will be encouraged at the event. We even have a dedicated time for folks with small dogs (under 40 pounds) to attend without larger dogs around.
That being said, we need to hear from you. Will you attend Pooch Plunge? Please answer our poll on Facebook to let us know. It will close on July 27. Take the poll here
