“Making a Difference in a Dog’s Life”

Fur Kid with American FlagHello Bichon Lovers,
Welcome to our summer 2018 newsletter — in time to wish you a happy (and safe) holiday and to bring you some articles of interest to FurKid moms and dads.

Our cover article is one we think will touch your hearts, as it has ours. It’s the story about learning the difference between ‘animals’ and ‘pets’ — and how the word ‘sharing’ has new meaning when it includes a FurKid (or two). Although he’s a pretty little guy, Avery had big shoes to fill. And he signed up to do just that. His story is even more special because it is through your generosity that he can now truly see the world around him, brightening the life of his family and everyone Avery meets.

Our Junior Volunteers are very special and most appreciated. For Samantha Munitz, giving back and doing a ‘mitzvah’ involved making beautiful blankets for FurKids. She and her family have fostered a number of pups over the past four years – and Samantha’s service project was a colorful one, as documented in photos and her words on page 4.

Many of you have asked us if there is some way that you can help a specific pup or kind of pup, mentioning that you want to do something but are unable to foster. We heard you — and have developed a program we hope you will like. It allows you to participate in whatever way works for you and for however long you would like to help. You choose if you want to help a puppy, a Golden Oldie, a Hipster – or any other category. As it is a new program that we are rolling out, we have our fingers (and paws) crossed hoping that, with your support, we can help more deserving FurKids. Information about FurKid Sponsorship is on page 5.

We all love our little FurKids from the bottom of our hearts to the tips of their paws. And keeping them safe is a priority. With the Fourth of July approaching, we are asked about what we can do to ensure their safety and sanity. The article on page 6 and 7 provides some tips and techniques. We hope that you will think about your FurKids and make sure that they are safe on the 4th!

While we have rescheduled the Bash until next Spring (dates to be confirmed soon) we are working on other adoption and meeting opportunities. Our next event is outside the Chico’s store on Saturday, July 28th at The Forum Shoppes in Carlsbad. Please check the EVENTS page on our website from time to time, as we will be posting events, dates and locations as we commit to them.

The love, support and generosity of our Bichon FurKids community is what keeps us going. The photos and updates you share with us keep us smiling and working to save more FurKids. Your support helps us over those bumpy roads. Please keep those photos and updates coming as we really DO want to hear from you!
