As a non-profit organization, Friendship APL is always open to donations. Whether it’s a dollar dropped off at the main desk or a check written at our annual Wags event, every little bit helps. The bottom line is we would not be able to continue to function without the outpouring of financial support from generous folks and businesses. It keeps the lights on, gas in the tank, vet bills paid and the staff working.
On April 18th, Ganley Westside Subaru held a fundraiser for us which was extremely kind of the good folks over there. If they donated something like $1,000, I personally would have been excited. However, they did not donate $1,000. They donated $13,000. Can we say pleasantly surprised? Sometimes it helps to have a pillow on the floor to cushion the landing of your jaw dropping. Needless to say, I was astounded at the very generous act from that dealership.
As always, vet bills are one of the biggest expenses FAPL faces annually (if not the biggest). To see an amount arrive this sizable is not only helpful, it’s a blessing. Thank you to Ganley Westside Subaru for your most awesome assistance in helping us care for our cats and dogs before they are off to their forever homes. Well done, ladies and gents!
