Why is it called The Julian Fund?
This fund raising effort of Piney Mountain Foster Care is named after a chewed up boxer who was snatched from the jaws of death just minutes before he was to be euthanized (literally: another 20 minutes and he’d have been dead). Money was raised for his extensive medical needs, he was loved, healed, trained, and then adopted to a family who adores him.
Julian’s adoptive dad had not had a dog before and he was hesitant, but agreed to a trial in-home stay. Once he got to know Julian he was hooked!
When his wife asked if he was willing to proceed with the adoption, he replied,
“Life is too short to not have a dog.” In that spirit and in honor of this wonderful dog, we established The Julian Fund to raise money specifically to pay the medical bills of needy rescue dogs, especially those rescued from shelters.
The Julian Fund has a web site of it’s own. Please see The Julian Fund
