Bichon FurKids Rescue Annual Fundraiser The 2022 Bichon Bash

ORGANIZATION: BICHON FURKIDS RESCUE

Image_202108171636

Annual Fundraiser for Bichon Fur Kids Dog Rescue (BFK) www.bichonfurkids.org. We were founded in 2005 and are based in Southern California. To date, our rescue organization has rescued, rehabilitated, and lovingly rehomed and placed more than 3,500 dogs, primarily bichons and bichon mixes (as that is our mission). We have also rescued a few non-bichon pups that urgently needed help.

BFK is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, registered with the IRS for the past 15 years and managed by an elected Board of Directors.

We take in dogs of all ages, from newborn puppies to our senior citizens. Our goal is to always provide the best foster environment possible -one that enables us to truly understand the personalities and needs of our rescued pups in order to match them with the best families available.

In addition to love and dedicated attention, we provide best healthcare possible to address their medical needs. We also provide whatever training a dog may need to become the best dog he or she can be.

We have also incorporated a "Forever Foster" program for older bichons whose medical needs are absorbed by our organization. Within that program, BFK pays the medical expenses for the life of each FurKid in the program.

Our Annual Fundraiser - The Bichon Bash

As you may imagine, the money that we invest in caring for each pup can be extensive and a challenge for any rescue group. The pandemic has also affected the cost of veterinary services, including an uptick of between 25-50%. As a result, we are scrambling to ensure that we have sufficient funds to provide the care that these loving pups need and deserve.

We hold our annual fundraiser, which we call the Bichon Bash, to enable us to raise as much money as possible to provide for the dogs in our care. Please understand that 100% of any and all money we raise goes directly to address the needs of our FurKids -from veterinarians and groomers to supplies.

Our fundraiser is attended by supporters, friends, adopters (and their bichons), vendors, sponsors, with a catered lunch, raffle baskets, auction, bake sale and booths.
