Monthly Donor Spotlight

Why did you decide to become a monthly donor?
I decided to become a monthly donor because I found myself donating every time I saw a Facebook post, and I figured that this would just be easier than ad hoc donations. I love the work that you do, filling such an important gap for our community, ensuring health and shelter for senior pets. There is nothing like a senior pet. An aggressive cancer robbed my heart dog, Zuzu, of more senior years with me when she was just 13. She was never sweeter or more loved than in her senior days.
What do you love about senior animals?
These are things I love about senior animals. They are settled. They have distinct personalities already developed. They have many years of practice loving unconditionally...not that they needed practice. They lead the other animals in the family, while the other animals bring out their youthful spirits. They give me an opportunity to see my husband caring patiently and devotedly for someone he loves as he ages and nurses injuries.
What would you tell others thinking about becoming a monthly donor?
Being a monthly donor has assured me that I am helping individual animals in SPAAR's care while also helping further the organization's mission and growth. Throughout our medical challenges with our pets, we have been incredibly fortunate to be able to find and afford the best care for them. We know that that isn't true for a lot of families. Knowing that Ferdinand's Fund is there and that we are helping to grow the fund to help those families is a great feeling.

My husband Andrew and I have two dogs (Luxo, 14, and Fred, 4) and two cats (Jack-Jack, 12, and Tarkas, 4). We are still grieving the loss of our Zuzu to cancer in 2016; she, Luxo, and Jack-Jack have taught us how wonderful senior pets are.
