Fundraising Update

Tonight I am completely overwhelmed by the love and generosity of our community, family and friends. I dropped off a neighbor's son's gift of his allowance to 4 Paws tonight and found out the total of funds raised on behalf of Madison are at a whopping $2, 126.00. I started to sob right there in their office. I believe that this dream of a service dog for Madison will be attained and that is only because of all of you! Thank you. On the first of every month I will receive an update as to our progress. As I receive your name and donation I will post it here.....
