Donna's Story

Donna Appenzeller

My cause is animal rescue. As an animal lover from a young age, I appreciate the gifts our pets give to us. Our rescue, Fioa, was dying when we found her. She had been confined to a wire cage for some time; her paws and belly were sore due to the wet environment. She had no hair on her nose from rubbing it off trying to escape. She is now a thriving, happy and joyful addition to our family. Funding through the CFC can bring awareness and provide temporary shelter, food, and comfort to animals in need until an adopting family can be found. It is important we leave a legacy or charitable giving, compassion ad understanding to our children, the future stewards of those less fortunate.
