Hello animal lovers! We’ve got lots to update you on!
We’d like to thank everyone who came out to our Strut Your Mutt event in September. It was very successful and fun was had by all. And let’s have a HUGE WELCOME to our newest members! Over 20 people joined FLASh as paid members, at Strut Your Mutt! Awesome!
Take a look at the wonderful photos of the day HERE.
On October 6th, we held a business meeting to discuss how to best use the SYM funds and other news. We had a terrific turnout and thank you to all who attended!
Please take a look through the summary of the meeting (linked below), and please share any thoughts or ideas you have, on any of the topics. You can email FLASh (firstname.lastname@example.org), me (email@example.com), or post on the FLASh Facebook page.
We also have more happy news!! FLASh has received a $2500 grant that we applied for, from PetCo Foundation! This grant was written specifically to assist folks calling in to the HotLine, which is used to help those in need when situations arise where someone cannot keep a pet, or have found a pet, and for families in a crisis situation who just may need a little help. The funds are dedicated to helping with spay/neuter costs, vaccination costs, pet food, and temporary boarding.
Just a reminder/information to all members, we do have a yahoo group that is a closed group – just FLASh people – no spammers, etc. Everyone is invited and encouraged to join it. It’s a very easy and effective way to communicate amongst each other, in a more ‘private’ setting than Facebook. This is where we post information about hotline calls, needs for help, just general discussions about things we are working on, etc.

Thank you, and keep checking back for more updates!
