SENIOR PET MONTH
November is the best month of the year for Lizzy’s Fund. It is Senior Pet Month and we are again celebrating by paying the adoption fees for any senior dogs adopted during the month of November at any authorized shelter or rescue. In addition to covering the adoption fee, Lizzy will pay for a blood panel so that the new family has a baseline of their pet’s health at the time of adoption. We are also excited to mention that one of our generous benefactors will 100% match all donations made to the Fund during the month of November to honor senior dogs everywhere! Please consider adding a wonderful senior dog to your family! Remember, with a senior dog, every day is a gift!

What a great night we had for Lizzy’s Fund! The Fund was a not-for-profit chosen to host the bake sale at the July 6th Naperville Municipal Band Concert. The concert is a 150-year-old summer tradition in Naperville. Over 1,000 people attended the concert and in addition to the baked goods, 25 copies of “Sophie…best friends are forever” were given away to people that made significant donations to Lizzy’s Fund. It was a “win-win” for the charity as well as the senior dogs it supports.
