GRIEVING MY PET
Grieving My Pet Support Group provides compassionate support for all stages of animal companion grief. The cost is free. The goal of this new service is not to merely cope, but to heal and continue life in honor of our loved one.
Meeting date and time:
Second Saturday of each month
11:00am to 12:30pm
Location: Safe Haven
257509 Hwy 101, Port Angeles
(between Barr Road and Shore Road)
iGive is donating $3 to Peninsula Friends of Animals for every new iGive member referred by PFOA. No purchase required. It doesn’t get any simpler. Once they try the iGive Button for PCs and Macs for 90 days, we’ll automatically credit Peninsula Friends of Animals with $3. We know that helping is so simple and automatic with the Button, we expect they’ll shop and help even more.
Feels good, does good, and it’s so easy. You are helping every time you shop at over 1,900 stores. Travel, office supplies, and clothing, too. Each purchase at Walmart, Jet.com, QVC, Staples, and so many more stores. Peninsula Friends of Animals gets an average of 3.00% with every purchase.
During the summer, we have several outdoor volunteer opportunities. We are in need of helpers to mow our grounds on a riding mower. Our smaller yards and hill area require a push mower. Weeding our garden beds, cleaning outdoor furniture in cat yards or washing windows are all opportunities to help and enjoy the outdoors. Any time you could offer would be most appreciated.
OUR SINCERE THANKS!
Peninsula Friends Of Animals extends our deepest appreciation to the Ben and Myrtle Walkling Memorial Trust for their generous $2,000 grant used to purchase a sturdy 8″x 12′ Tuff Shed Storage Unit to house our Pet Food Bank for low income pet guardians in crisis situations. These individuals can’t afford to feed their companion animals and we are able to help due to donations of cat and dog food from local businesses.
Our Pet Pantry serves a critical need in our community with 148 pet households receiving our help in 2017. PFOA distributed over 5,500 pounds of dry food and 540 cans of moist pet food to needy animals.
We are also grateful to the Sequim Sunrise Rotary Team who donated their time and skill to install the shelving in our new Tuff Shed. With their invaluable help, the Pet Pantry is now fully functional.
DONATION DROPOFF POINT
The Allstate office in Sequim, located at 440 W. Bell St., has generously offered to be a drop off location for PFOA donations of toys, food, etc. If you’re unable to drive to Safe Haven, please drop off your donation there.
We have an urgent need for full or queen size flat burgundy sheets. We use them to cover our display tables at various events throughout the year.
PFOA NEEDS YOU!
We need Early Bird Cleaners to assist our Caregivers in refreshing the kitty playrooms. You have the opportunity to be the first volunteers of the day to greet the kitties. If you are a morning person and can help provide this important service, please contact Danette Grady at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for helping us to help them.
