Connie’s Care Fund
Connie’s Care Fund was established in 2013 in remembrance of a dedicated Furry Friends volunteer, passionate big and small cat lover and dear friend, Connie Miller. Donations to this fund are specifically designated for extraordinary medical expenses for the cats in our care.
If you would like your contribution to go to the Connie’s Care Fund please specify when you donate.
We Love Our Pets license plates
With the purchase of a “We Love Our Pets” Washington State license plate, sponsored by the WA State Federation of Animal Care and Control, you will help spay and neuter more pets and save lives. In an effort to be proactive regarding the pet overpopulation problem in our state, these funds have been earmarked through an agreement with the State of Washington for spay/neuter surgeries for dogs and cats in our state. As of the end of 2013, nearly $400,000 in grant funds have been awarded by The Federation, enabling the completion of more than 14,000 spay/neuter surgeries in Washington State!
Plates are available for registered passenger vehicles, light duty pickups, trailers, motorcycles and campers in Washington State. For questions or to locate vehicle licensing offices, visit the Washington State Department of Vehicle Licensing. Thank you for your support!
