As we gradually implement the foundation’s award process, our success stories will multiply many times. Please see our “How to Apply” section elsewhere on this website for additional information.
Dennis Friends Foundation grant application system activation continues; however, Dennis’ generosity already has impacted animal lives in a big way. Rio Rancho’s Watermelon Ranch tells us that his contribution has “enabled us to continue our mission and save even more lives.” Through Dennis’ direct bequest, the Ranch has fielded some major animal medical bills. Their executive director relays this message: “Dogs like Darla, Spanky, and Penelope say thank you.” She adds, “I wish there were words for how grateful we truly are. Thank you from the bottom of our paws.”
In Telluride, Colorado, where Dennis maintained a vacation home, Second Chance Humane Society sports a new traveling adoption van to serve the Western Slope. Mobile Mutts & Meows, also obtained through a direct contribution, proudly proclaims, “Donated in memory of (Dennis’ first New Mexican dog) Chaco.”
