Summer is fast approaching and with summer weather 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.
We also have a critical need for 15 volunteers for the Olympic Cellars fundraising event on August 4 from 6 to 8 pm. Contact Danette Grady at (360) 452-0414 if you would like to participate in this worthwhile event.
CATNIP & SIP UPDATE
Thank you to all for a most successful Catnip and Sip Event. We raised $19,766 to benefit our rescues. A generous donor offered a match of $5,000 for our Fund A Need to assist with cost of renovations for Turtle Towers and our Isolation Trailer. We exceeded our goal with $6,125 given.
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!
PFOA has a critical need for two able bodied volunteers to set up our tent and display at local major festivals. The tent is used for the sale of our primary fundraising item – our world-famous handmade potholders. In 2017, our potholder team had over $27,000 in sales. 100% of these monies are used for the care of our rescues. If you can help fill this vital role, please contact Danette Grady at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for helping us to help them.
