DOGGIE EASTER BASKET FUNDRAISER SUCCESS!
WOW,what a wonderful surprise! The first ever "Doggie Easter Baskets" were a hit. At only $5 a basket, would you believe that we raised just over $1000 to go toward boarding costs! Each basket was filled with tasty homemade Easter treats in several different flavors such as Cheese Hydrants, Veggie Paws, Carob Chocolate Chip Cookies, Snickerpoodles, Peanut Butter Ankle Biters, and Good Dog Bones. Everyone raved about how much their dogs loved the treats! We want to thank the following businesses for helping to make this possible: Wal-mart (donated $25 in supplies), Big Star ($25 worth of supplies), Budweiser (donated the sign), and Healthcare Contract Services (donated funds/supplies), and Roselyn O. (donated the use of her kitchen to bake these goodies). A very special thanks to the following volunteers (really... we could not have done this without them): Lisa, Leanne, Austin, Pat, Cissy, Shannon, Jerry, Rene, Mary, Gloria, Allison, Dana, Dee, Trisha, and Trinity. We still have a gigantic outstanding vet bill, so please consider donating to help pay for medical costs. Heartworm treatment for just one dog is typically between $200 and $300 each! Needless to say we have a huge number of heartworm positive dogs living in the Mid-South! THANKS AGAIN TO ALL OF YOU WHO HELPED WITH THIS FUNDRAISER! If anyone has any ideas for fundraising or would like to volunteer, please email us!
