Thank You Girl Scout Troop #8801, Mira Mesa
Our appreciation and gratitude goes out to the Brownie Troop in San Diego for taking the time to learn about the importance of rescuing and also for taking the time to make beautiful fleece blankets for our furkids to snuggle with!
Dear Bichon Fur Kids Rescue-
Troop 8801 Junior Girl Scouts has been working on some warm fuzzy blankets for the sweet dogs. This is our service project for the year 2012-2013. We certainly enjoyed making these fun blankets and filled them with love.
Our troop has supported many areas of our community. We do have a member of our troop who helps foster the Bichon Frise in your organization. Her name is Sofia Ugarte. Our troop definitely has canine enthusiasts. They all love dogs. We hope that each dog will be in a happy home and be extra comfortable in their new blankets!
Our blanket artists are: Kailtyn, Sofia, Alexi, Isabella, Neveah and Becca (not shown).

Thanks to Connor and Kellie for volunteering their summer vacation time to take care of Bichon Furkids in foster care at the home of Jessica Ley in Anaheim.
In addition to the many furkids she fosters, Jessica also babysits for Kellie and Connor for the summer. Kellie and Connor feed, brush, walk, play, teach, help bathe and clean up after the furkids … and even try to get people to adopt them! Connor is quite the salesman. Sometimes the kids get scratched, nipped and growled at, yet nothing detours them from loving and caring for the dogs. They were a tremendous help preparing Danny, Scooter and Pop Tart to go their new homes. And there will be more before the summer is over! Jessica says that the giggles she hears when the dogs jump all over them and shower them with kisses is heartwarming.
Thanks, Connor & Kellie! You have made a difference in the lives of several furkids!
Thank you so much for helping make these beautiful blankets!
Over Thanksgiving vacation and the first part of December, Breanna gathered together some fleece and some friends and made almost twenty blankets for deserving fur kids. We want to thank her, and her wonderful mom, Shannon and her bichon, Comet (who personally put his paw of approval on each blanket.)
Breanna, we thank you for your generosity!
