Valentine’s Record! $2500+

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Dear Readers! You set an all-time Valentine’s record of $2,522 raised for the Hearts for the Herd and nearly 500 Valentines received!

Wow, that is awesome!

Wow, that is awesome!

Yes, Qannik, that is awesome and you raised the second highest total at $510.25, but the Queen set the record with $571.25!

But of course I did. I am the Queen!

And Typhoon did great receiving 98 Valentines, but his big brother Frankie has a really powerful fan club that sent 169 Valentines.

But, of course, the real winners are the homeless dogs and cats that can be helped by Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation thanks to your donations! As a family of rescues, we might be living the easy life now, but we do remember what it was like trying to find your forever home.

A forever home is soooo comfy!

And a big thanks to the Youth of Sarge’s who worked so hard raising money and getting Valentines mailed from their friends. We are really proud of their hard work.
