Bethel Friends of Canines is a volunteer run organization that works in conjunction with the local animal care officers to find permanent homes for abandoned or neglected dogs and puppies in our community. Our mission as a service organization is to increase the canine well being through education, advocacy, and a network of foster and adoptive homes.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
BFK9 is a 100% volunteer run nonprofit organization. Our success depends on our volunteers and community support. All of our funding comes from donations, fundraising, grants, and programs like Pick. Click. Give. Every penny that we receive goes directly to bettering the lives of the dogs and cats in our community.
Your donation from Pick. Click. Give. will help to cover a variety of items. One way we assist is to take in unwanted and abandoned pets and adopt them out into approved homes. The cost of this is large, and donations go towards funding of the day to day necessities it takes to save these animals: food, kennels, toys, vaccinations, emergency care, spay and neuters, etc. A large amount of the animals we take in have been turned over or surrendered to us due to a medical emergency.
Although we are based in Bethel, we rescue animals from surrounding villages and work with rescue groups in the Anchorage and Mat-Su area. A majority of our animals (and all medical emergencies) are flown into Anchorage for emergency services, and then to find their forever homes with these partner non-profit groups. Your donation helps these dogs to get the life saving medical help they need.
Your donation from Pick. Click. Give. will also assist in finishing the building of a large kennel in Bethel. We have started constructing a large kennel to house animals that we rescue. The completion of this kennel will allow us to rescue animals without having a foster home lined up, which means we could take in any animal at any time. With completion of this kennel, we will be able to rescue (and therefore save the lives of) a higher volume of animals.
Your donation will also help us to reduce the population of unwanted pets in Bethel and surrounding villages. We currently sponsor a low cost spay and neuter clinic for community pets, which has gone over with great success.
BFK9 would not be as successful as we have, if it wasn't for the great community support we have received. It is individuals like you, who generously donate to help support our cause and what we are doing. We greatly appreciate every dollar that is donated! Thank you!
