New Website Coming!

Be on the lookout for a brand new, fresh looking website for FOWACC.  Under construction right now (just like the new Shelter!)  Thanks everyone for your support, and you will be redirected to the new site from this address soon.

 

Special Appeal:

The Town of Windsor is building a new animal shelter at the corner of Bloomfield Ave. and Marshall Phelps Rd. The storage in this facility is minimal.

We are also going to be losing our storage area at the private residence utilized in town.

Roland, from Simply Sheds has come forward, and has offered to build a shed for us for 2,000. Thank you Roland for your generosity.We have lowered our goal from 5,000 to 2,000 to reflect the offer. Please spread the word!

We hope to raise enough funds through this GOFUNDME account to purchase a large shed, which will then be placed on the property where the new animal shelter is being constructed. This will allow us to continue to provide residents with necessary pet food allowing them to keep their animals rather than surrender them. We currently serve anywhere from 70-100 families each month providing them with pet food which is donated to our organization.

The new shelter is under construction and due to open soon…

Please help us continue to provide this free service to our residents by donating towards this cause and our goal of $2,000.00.

A BIG THANK YOU to Ed Cutler – “Benches for Heroes”

Mr. Cutler refurbishes old benches in his Windsor garage and donates them to wounded veterans. He has generously offered to donate a bench, similar to this one, with a plaque in memory of Windsor’s Fallen K-9 heroes (Valor, Sampson,   Jag, Iko, Kane, Tanner, and Gobbi). The bench will be placed at the new Windsor Animal Shelter site with a dedication ceremony during the Grand Opening. Please check out Mr. Cutler’s facebook “Benches for Heroes” to find out more about his mission to show his appreciation to our wounded veterans.
