The last two years have been particularly hard for Furever Home, as well as many other local businesses and non-profits. Since the onset of the COVID pandemic, all fundraising has been halted to keep our animals, supporters, volunteers, and donors healthy and safe. Even now, years after the global pandemic, Furever Home is still struggling to recover and operate. “We have amazing local donors and most of them are also affected by the pandemic, so our source of funding is still decreasing day by day,” said Tina Krueger, Volunteer Fundraising Coordinator for the rescue.

Furever Home Adoption Center’s mission is to relieve the suffering and meet the needs of homeless animals within Lancaster County. The rescue exists through public support and private fundraising, and this event is an integral part of their ability to help save more lives.

Participants, volunteers, donors and sponsors are still needed for the event. To learn more about the organization, visit www.FureverHomeAdoptionCenter.com. For more information, contact Tina Krueger at flippers1@aol.com or 717-808-8108.
