Join Foundant Technologies for a FUNdraising event that will get your tail waggin' on Friday, August 28! Have your dog washed, enjoy some food, grab a raffle ticket, learn pet CPR, and more. All proceeds go to benefit Tiny Tails Rescue, 4 Paws Rescue and Stafford Animal Shelter.

Foundant Animal Rescue Fundraiser - Friday, August 28 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Dee-O-Gee (2051 Oak St, Bozeman)

Foundant Technologies will be washing dogs in the Dee-O-Gee self-wash room (using only all-natural, hypoallergenic shampoo) from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Friday, August 28. During this time, they will also be selling hotdogs, handing out Cold Smoke Coffeehouse donation coupons ($1 of each purchase goes to the fund), and selling raffle tickets for the chance to win awesome prizes from local vendors, including West Paw Design. There's a “suggested” $20 donation per wash, $5 per hotdog, and will be charging $5 per raffle ticket.

Raffle Items:  West Paw is donating a dog bed/toy package. Tiny Tails is bringing a handmade dog and cat quilt. And J&V will be donating some kind of cookware.

All proceeds will go to Tiny Tails Rescue (Manhattan), 4 Paws Rescue (Cardwell), and Stafford Animal Shelter (Livingston), smaller rescues who are in great need. Tiny Tails and 4 Paws are run strictly by volunteers who often use their own money to fund their operations – neither have a facility. Stafford receives partial government funding, but they rely on fundraising for much of their operations and do not turn away any animals.

Each shelter will be on hand to talk about their operations and the animals they care for. Tiny Tails is also bringing Casper the CPR Dummy Dog to teach people how to do CPR and First Aid on their pets.

No cash but would still like to help? The shelters have wish lists of items they need. Visit their websites for more info:
