After a whirlwind of activity at Famous Fido’s Chihuahua Fest on Saturday, the dogs needed a break, as did I! It was great to see all the people who came out to support our cause. This is one of our annual fundraisers designed to celebrate chihuahuas and raise awareness about this second most-killed dog breed in the United States.
Famous Fido is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to reduce the number of homeless pets euthanized each year through an adoption program, community education, and promotion of spaying and neutering. The organization receives no federal or state funding and relies solely on community donations, fundraising events, and volunteers to support operations and animal care. The group also advocates for legislation and ordinance changes to secure rights for all animals. For more information, visit Famous Fido’s website at http://www.famousfidorescue.org
If you missed this event, don’t worry – the Halloween party is October 20th and there will be a costume contest with prizes, as well as live music and games.
