$10,000.00 Matching Campaign:
This month of February with love in the air,
"To love, is to Act."
Senior dog lover, Tanya Nielsen, has challenged Frosted Faces Foundation and our supporters to match a $10,000.00 donation in honor of her mother who passed away on February 13th of last year. Tanya shares that her mom taught her the value of love and putting it into action. Tanya has loved countless senior animals through the end of their lives, and this Valentine's Day would like to see her donation matched to help more senior animals whose love and lives are in jeopardy.
Please help us achieve and double this donation, where your $1 is worth $2.
To love, is to act!

$200 Sue King: How I love senior dogs - I have 5 senior rescue dogs, and volunteer in various ways with FFF from admin work and home checks to volunteering on-site.
$150 Karen Billington: We adopted 9 yr old Toby from our local shelter as a companion for our 8 yr old lab a few months after we lost his older brother. The first couple of weeks were way rougher then anyone expected, Porter really didn't want a new brother. During this period we also learned that Toby suffers from seizures and is a runner / opportunistic escape artist.
The seizures are mostly controlled with medication, and the humans are much better trained about keeping the gates closed. Most importantly, Porter and Toby have made their piece. Porter is the boss and they figured out that they get way more treats when they present as a united front!
Fast forward 3 years and we can't remember when Toby wasn't a part of our family. He is definitely good company for Porter; keeps him honest during evening games of fetch, but Toby is definitely his own dog. Toby is sweet, loving, empathetic, aloof and stubborn as a mule, all at the same time.
Toby is one of a kind and we are very grateful that we get to be his pack. Here's to many more birthdays for our 12 yr old "puppy".....
$100 Mary Arkwright: I try to be a good Mom to my 4 beautiful dogs.

Hopefully having lots of fun along the way too! Daisy, Angel, and I had many wonderful adventures in our time together. I miss them both so much.

$50 Elizabeth Wentworth: My current companion is Mojo; a Chi-mix foundling from a mall parking lot, whom no one claimed. As he is young and I am currently 60; I have been sadly contemplating that this may be my last 4 legged companion. I am fearful of leaving a furry friend in a homeless situation when I pass. But I have come to realize that I may be able to provide a loving home to the older ones whose own need is limited by expected lifespan. I am happily looking forward to providing a home to the elderly ones for as long as I can! :)
$50 Ann McKay: Dogs have always been an important part of my life. But it was volunteering at my local animal shelter that made me a champion for senior dogs. I had a senior rottie named Drew, and have always been a one-dog-at-a-time pet owner, but decided to bring home Noah, a 14-year-old terrier from the shelter that was doing poorly there, expecting to have him just a few months...he was with us nearly 2 years! Then, I fell in love with Angie, a senior lab/Rhodesian mix at the shelter. She had the best personality, but no one applied to adopt her, because she was a senior. So, when my two dogs passed, I adopted her, and Andy, the Jack Russell Terrier mix she befriended at the shelter, who had been there for 2 years because he was extremely distrustful of most people. Then, I discovered Frosted Faces Foundation via a Shane's War campaign posted on Facebook. This was an organization that grabbed my heart immediately! So, I decided I had room for a third, and applied to foster this pathetic little Chihuahua/Papillon mix we named Monty (C. Montgomery Burns). We have since adopted little Monty, and, after my sweet Angie passed, took in 15-year-old Sparky, who was at the animal shelter because his owner stabbed him three times before killing himself. It was very unlikely anyone would apply to adopt a 15-year-old half-blind, mostly-deaf dog, no matter how sad his story. But dogs like Sparky...and Monty...and Angie...and Noah...they deserve so much more than being left in a shelter to die. Frosted Faces inspires me to continue to do whatever I can to help them, by taking in those that I can, volunteering my time for home checks for Frosted Faces, and volunteering at my local animal shelter. Though our time with these seniors is always too short, the gifts they give far exceed the heartache we experience.
