This is our first online edition of Paw Prints, the Paws & Claws Fur Ever newsletter.
July 5th – Omaha, NE Freddy’s Fundraiser was very hectic. The restaurant had recently changed policy on fundraisers requiring that those buying food, drink or frozen custard & wanting their purchase to be credited to the fundraiser had to tell that to the cashier when paying for their order. Well, it seems that the drive-thru cashier ignored those instructions thinking that at the end of the evening, all sales would added. Not the case. As a result we were denied drive-thru sales credit and probably didn’t receive full credit for dine-in orders either, since it appeared at least one cashier didn’t know how to note the fundraiser when ringing sales. It appears we raised less than $80 for the 4 hours spent canvassing diners and drive-thru patrons. We will not return to the Millard Freddy’s anytime soon.
July 3 – Aug 5 – GoFundMe Fundraiser A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for a special project. We will be using donations raised on this page to cover adoption costs for long-time residents of the Handsome Dan Rescue in RI in memory of the dog for whom the rescue is named. Handsome Dan was the youngest of the Vicktory dogs rescued from a dog fighting ring operated by Michael Vick & his partners. Their rescue and subsequent second chance changed the way survivors of dog fighting are evaluated. Last week, Danimal (as he was called) crossed Rainbow Bridge. His family continues to run the rescue that bears his name. Please consider donating what you can to this special project. You can find the GoFundMe page at: gf.me/u/jkchit As always if you prefer, you can mail a check/money payable to Paws & Claws Fur Ever, P O Box 390215, Omaha, NE 68139. Please indicate that the donation is to be credited to the Adoption Project.
We are still looking to do an auction and shirt sale later this year. Details will be announced as they are completed.
Thank you for your continued support. A special thanks to our fabulous Board of Directors, Cherie Clark, Cheryl Montgomery & Bill Clark.
Until next time — Nanci
