Happy August! Is it August Already!?!
July was busy with boarding and walks. I hope you have been having lots of summer adventures. We have been hard at work with new training clients, weekend boarding and, of course, our regular walks.
This month came with some exciting new developments. We are in the process of building a board of directors, reaching out to folks for fostering and making moves towards our big dream of having a full foster network for houseless families in need of temporary housing for their Fur-Ever pals.
The Dream Is Coming to Life!
We are hoping to begin an access fund in the coming months.
As some of you may know, we offer our services on a sliding scale basis for low income households with Furbabes. We at Fur-Ever Is A Promise believe walks, sitting/boarding, and training sessions should be accessible to all families and we want to make that service sustainable. By setting up an access fund where community members can donate we can offer that to more families and hire more walkers on for more hours.
In the past we have offered our services at a sliding scale that has slid down to ZERO for boarding, walks, and training. We want to keep doing this!
More to come on how you can donate to our access fund will be coming soon!
You Can Contribute To Your Community Too!
Do you want to foster a pup? Do you have ideas on how we might structure our Foster Network? Wanna just meet and organize with some rad social justice nerds who want to help houseless and marginally housed Portland Residents stay connected to their fur-ever pals? We want you to join the Fur-Ever Is A Promise Foster Network! Email me with the Sign Me Up! in the subject line and we will add you to our volunteer interest list and email list so that you can get in on the developments, planning, and trainings!

Regular walk clients,
Let us know if you need changes, additional walks or boarding ASAP! We are booking up with boarding 30 plus days in advance and we want to be sure we can accommodate your needs!
***Just a reminder, we are booking most walks Mon- Thurs. We currently have limited availability for Fri-Sun due to boarding requests. It's not impossible, but it is limited. Email us if you have specific dates in mind.
Products and Tips!
We are now selling holistic remedies, dog care tip literature (illustrated by me!), custom button refrigerator magnets and doggy nutrition workshops! Check out our website at our shop for what we have. All profits from our shop go towards our Access Fund and help us to keep our sliding scale model a possibility!
Thank you for all of your support. When you let us be part of your fur-ever promise pet care services, you are helping your community too! It's not just your dog that gets cared for, a dog in need gets cared for too. It's a pretty amazing thing we are all doing together and I want to thank you for being a part of it and helping our dreams become a reality!
Letty, Kimbo, and Enke
