Corvettes and pets get together for foundation
Last updated 3/21/2023 at Noon
John and Sande Burgess of High Desert Corvette Club (HDCC) made a visit to the Furry Friends pet food bank last week. They were pleased to deliver a $500 donation to Furry Friends Foundation (FFF).
“People often ask me how we are funded and now I am happy to add High Desert Corvette Club to that list of supporters,” said FFF founder Kiki Dolson.
The pet food bank is busier than ever and larger donations are vital to the operation.
The donation was made in the memory of HDCC member Ann Lankford, who was a great lover of all animals, especially dogs and cats. The club is donating a total of $1,500 to local animal rescues including Brightside Animal Center in Redmond and Three Rivers Humane Society in Madras.
High Desert Corvette Club is a social club dedicated to the love of Corvettes. They support the Central Oregon community in many ways. In 2022 they donated $500 to another Sisters charity, STARS, and in addition they have donated to numerous Central Oregon charities such as the Kids Center, Saving Grace, Central Oregon Veterans Ranch and others.
Currently aiding more than 125 families with pets monthly, Furry Friends distributes over two tons of pet food a month.
“The cost of pet food has really risen since COVID, and the need has increased. We really need cash donations right now. We’re also happy to take any bags of dog or cat food too,” Dolson said.
Families are able to get pet food and supplies once a month from the pet food bank. FFF also sponsors free spay/neuters and vaccinations through the Rawley Project’s FixBend program.
