FOFA Gift Basket


Friends of Forks Animals volunteers will be at Forks Outfitters Dec. 16, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

During that time anyone making a donation of any amount will receive a ticket for a chance to win a basket designed by Karen Beyer. The drawing will be held later that day.

Members at the table will be glad to help people sign up pets for spay or neuter scheduled at a later date. All surgeries are done at Dr. Pat’s Pet Care in Forks.

During the holidays and cold weather, the Friends are asked more often to help citizens with pet food. The organization is always in need of cash donations and Thriftway receipts are an asset.

The receipts can be dropped off at Dr. Pat’s or given to volunteers when they are at Forks Outfitters. Bob’s Forks True Value has a basket at his store where pet food can be dropped off to help hungry pets too.

Please stop by the table to meet the wonderful volunteers who make Friends of Forks Animals possible!!
