We’ve Only Just Begun

All of us old Luddite ladies at Four Legs and Fur are excited about the idea of becoming bloggers and letting you know the great things we’ve been doing to help Hickory County’s companion animals.

In the last three moLogo with Shading but no wordsnths, we’ve helped get over thirty cats and dogs spayed or neutered; distributed nearly 1,000 pounds of cat and dog food to seniors and others who would otherwise not be able to keep their pets; and found loving forever homes for thirteen cats and dogs.  Whew!  A lot of work, but so totally worth it!

The only way we can keep doing what we do is when great people like you donate.  Every dollar helps.  So please send your donations to PO Box 173, Hermitage, Missouri 65668.  We are a 501 (3) c organization and you will get a tax-deductible receipt from us at the end of the year, and a LOT of thanks from the animals right away!
