The Kahanui Chapter of the FOM has been an ongoing benefactor of Foothills Animal Shelter on the Front Range and has made provided some significant aid for the shelter over the past year during times of need.
At the end of 2011 the shelter's Director of Veterinary Medicine shared that the past year had seen the healthiest and most successful Kitten Season she had ever seen in the shelter. During the worst part of the summer, where Foothills experienced the most daunting numbers of unwanted kittens, the Kahanui provided funds for kitten milk and food - playing a strong role in the success of 2011.
Here are some photos from that event: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.247009855330531.64177.188031377895046&type=3
Earlier this year the FOM also provided funds for a much needed Puppy Pin materials - construction is currently under way.
This means that litters and singular puppies no longer have to be housed in the dog runs - a daunting scene for any baby-doggin's just starting out life in this big world!
Foothills does not just provide shelter to the homeless; recently the shelter was home to scores of evacuated animals during the Jefferson County fires...and fire season is obviously not over yet! Foothills housed cats, dogs, hoofstock, chickens, geese, peacocks, reptiles and even koi fish for evacuated and lost homesteads until families could pull their lives together and move forward after the blazes. Foothills also has a crackerjack crisis & evac team that works hard to gather animals when their people are away from home or not permitted to return to their homes due to evac.Currently, I have placed my frizzy mop in the chopping block in the name of the needy and homeless animals at Foothills Animal Shelter! A donation in ANY denomination would be appreciated - please see my page:https://givingfirst.org/PollyParrot
The date of expiration for my hair will be the evening of 06/27 - of course the process will be documented!
Your support would be greatly appreciated as it adds to the bigger picture of support to the Front Range animals and community!
