As many of you know, Fur Kids Foundation was formed in 2011 and began providing aid in September 2012. In less than a year, we have helped 10 families and contributed more than $1,000 to the Campbell County Community.
The Foundation could not do any of this work without the support of our sponsors.
Thank you to Cloud Peak Energy, who is sponsoring Pet-A-Palooza in September. We would also like to thank Animal Medical Center, FCA Country Store, Hands on Pottery and Photo Imaging Center for taking the time out of their busy schedule to support our cause with fundraisers and helping us with educational events. And, thank you to Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Energy Laboratories, Inc., First Interstate Bank, Gillette Energy Rotary Club, Land Surveying Incorporated, Lubrication Services, Inc., McKinnon Flooring, Phagan Photography, Sol Domus and Wyoming Beverage Pepsi-7-Up of Gillette, and our donors for supporting us this past year.
Thank you to the two vet clinics in Gillette, Animal Medical Center and Thunder Basin Veterinary Clinic PC., for supporting us and for embracing our mission.
Thank you to the Gillette/Campbell County Animal Shelter for sending clients our way and for helping us promote our events.
And, lastly, but certainly not least, thank you to our rock star volunteers because without them this organization would not run. This Foundation is run solely on volunteer support—we truly would not exist without you.
Congratulations to the other groups and individuals who received awards today:
- The Elite Flys, a motorcycle group that volunteers regularly at Pioneer Manor, a local long-term care facility
- The Gillette Police Department’s Crisis Response Team, a group of volunteers who ensure victims of crime have support and the information they need 24/7
- Tyler Kleist, a man who saved a family member from her burning home
- John Thomas Klier, a 10-year old boy who calmly helped his aunt receive medical help
- Bryan Mills, a veteran and decorated war hero
- Mary Lou Smart, a teacher who goes the extra mile for her students
We are truly humbled to be included among this group of hometown heroes. Thank you.
