SS Safari All-Star Fund


Bonnie Wright established the SS Safari All-Star Fund as a Field of Interest Fund at the Eau Claire Community Foundation to support and enhance the lives of dogs that need special care. It is Bonnie's vision that with the support of grants from this Fund, staff in shelter and foster care will receive training in positive approaches to canine behavior, that there will be improved practices in placing dogs in adoptive homes, and that advances will be made in research on canine cancer. It will also provide funding for the older dogs that may need hospice care and transition in a comfortable home so their last experience is the love of a human by their side at the transition.

This Fund honors the memory of her two beloved dogs, Sadie and Saxon, who died but inspired Bonnie's passion to help provide dogs with a "second chance" whether they present behavioral or physical health challenges. Grants supported by the SS Safari All-Star Fund will be directed to programs that fit Bonnie's vision. Bonnie is a member of the Foundation's Legacy Society.
