The Falkor Memorial Fund
Yesterday was a GRREAT day for Legacy Boxer Rescue! We celebrated our 9th birthday with a blowout bash on Facebook. Our Pack Leader, Auntie Sharon, shared stories all day about some of the memorable dogs in LBR's history. We set up a birthday wish-list on Amazon, and our amazing fans gifted us with 1 Freedom No-Pull Harness, 18 Gecko toys, 4 Rubber toys, 5 blue collars, 5 blue leashes, 22 Bowls and 6 42" crates for our fosters! How cool is that?
We also used yesterday as a fundraiser for a very impawtant new project -- the Falkor Fund.
I'm sure many of you remember poor little Falkor, who came into LBR's heart just last week but left a big impression! He was horribly sick and emaciated. LBR tried to save him, and we set up a donation link to raise money for his care. Sadly, Falkor was too far gone to save, and he passed away at our vet's office. But his memory lives on!! At the urging of our fans, we've left open his fundraiser and turned it into the Falkor Memorial Fund! We will use it to help LBR care for more dogs like Falkor, the ones who've been abandoned by everyone and need extra help to find their legacy of love. As of last night, the Falkor Memorial Fund has $6,838.00! LBR's fans rock, and I know the Falkor Fund will allow us to keep saving lots of amazing dogs!!
We will be leaving the Falkor Fund open for donations. You can go here to contribute.
