What We Do
Dugan Foundation believes there is no reason to kill a companion animal for population control. We do, therefore, everything in our power to assist existing non-profit organizations to shelter, adopt and care for the homeless companion animals. We also work to ensure all of our programs have an educational component to allow people to learn what it takes to make a no-kill community.
Three key events work to this end:
Woofstock – Animal Adoption & Music Festival – a large scale adoption event through the cooperative efforts of dozens of rescues and shelters in the state
Fur Ball – a bi-annual black tie fundraising event generating grant funds for work primarily in Spay Neuter efforts
Happy Howlidays – a food and supplies collection drive for selected animal welfare groups in Washington State.
We also attend many animal related events, educating the public about our mission and efforts. See our event calendar to find out where we will be next.
Longer term, we are currently focused in the development of a spay/neuter clinic in Tacoma, Washington with the capability to provide up to 20,000 spay/neuter surgeries a year, free to citizens and rescues. The rescues and shelters of Washington have expressed enough need to bring that clinic to capacity within its first year. Next steps will be to implement a regional plan for Washington, building a clinic in Eastern Washington, with two clinics to follow strategically placed to manage the overpopulation.
