Love Your Pet Non-Event

In February 2021, the foundation enjoyed presenting a second year of our winter “Non-Event” celebrating National Love Your Pet Day. Pets are part of our families. They're dear to our hearts, and they love us with all of our faults, unconditionally. We enjoyed providing an opportunity to celebrate our pets, while raising funds for Lassen Volcanic National Park

This year, we’re putting on our thinking caps to create equally fun and creative events for 2022. Stay tuned for more information on this page.
