through our doors every year. We have raised $170,000 to date! We are only $25,000
                           from the finish line!

                           REMEMBERING EDDIE
                           What a difference one small brown dog can make.

                           We adopted Eddie from the FM Humane Society on April 11, 1995. He was a
                           pound rescue about 2 months old. The vet classified him as a terrier mix, distin-
                           guished by lots of facial hair, very soft ears and a coat the texture of a whisk
                           broom. When asked what breed of dog he was (a frequent question), my husband
                           always told people he was a “brown dog”.

                           We knew from the very start that he had a lot of personality. When we brought
                           him home from the Humane Society, he immediately crawled up into the back
  window of the car and stayed there. This would remain his place to ride on all trips – even when he was
  full grown - until we traded the car for a van.

  Eddie was a funny dog with many endearing characteristics. Going to the vet was a social occasion. He
  couldn’t wait to get in the door to start socializing with anybody and everybody. He howled when he
  was happy, usually in the morning when he first got up or if he was trying to make a point. He was fasci-
  nated but puzzled by the neighborhood cat, Tommy, who totally ignored him. He was afraid of loud
  noises and hid in the closet during thunderstorms and on the 4th of July. He was a hunter of small game,
  spending many happy hours at the lake hunting for chipmunks, frogs and mice. When he was onto some-
  thing, his tail would go around in a circle. Once he carried a painted turtle around in his mouth, didn’t
  hurt it, just carried it around.

  A light went out in our lives when we lost Eddie on Saturday, September 20. He brought so much fun
  and laughter into our lives. Isn’t it amazing what affect one small brown dog can have?

Dear FMHS friends and supporters,

       We have been playing the “match-maker’ for an average of 50 dogs and cats and their loving families per month
throughout the year of 2008. We love it when a match is made at our shelter and when a cat or a dog gets its second
chance at a loving family. If you could be there to watch it happen, you will agree with us that they know when it is
                           time to go home with their families. It is definitely a sight to

                                This is what you make happen every day at the shelter with your support
                          and generosity. With your generous donations, you make it possible for 50 cats
                          and dogs a month to find their families at our shelter.

                                  Our goal was to raise $195,000 this year. We made it to $170,000 and we are so
                          very close to the finish line. We are asking you to help us get there. There are many ways
                          you can help us make it happen. You can use the gift card on page 2 and make a donation, or
                          you can play the “Name That Dog” or “Name That Cat” with us, or you can sponsor a dog/
                          cat kennel.

                                  Your gift today will continue to make the difference between a life on the streets
abandoned and scared or a life with a loving family. We cannot do it without you! Would you please continue to
help us make these “MATCHES MADE IN THE SHELTER” happen?
In gratitude,
Nukhet Hendricks, Executive Director

                                            NAME THAT CAT!

                             When the FM Humane Society rescues cats and dogs from the local impounds,
                             the animals come to us without a name. Staff has a wonderful time observing
                             the particular dog or cat to pick out just the right name.

We thought you would like to join the fun too!

So, would you like to name a dog? A cat? It is really easy to do! All you have
to do is to fill out the form below and send us your check for $35 or more!
Once we receive your request, we will name the first animal we rescue with the
name you have chosen and send you the picture of the animal. We will also post
a card by the animal’s kennel for all visitors to see the sponsor who name the
animal. By playing the name game with us, not only will you be helping us name
our animals but most importantly, you will be helping us to care for a cat or a
dog for a whole month!

   YES, we want to join in the fun of naming that cat or dog!

                      FM HUMANE SOCIETY’S
                    LEGACY SOCIETY UNVEILED
Donations, both large and small, have enabled the FM Humane Society to save and improve
the lives of dogs and cats throughout the community since 1966.

During the long history of the organization, many animal lovers have chosen to help the
homeless animals of the Fargo-Moorhead Humane Society even beyond the donors’ lifetime
by including the FM Humane Society in their estate planning.

The FM Humane Society is pleased to announce the Legacy Society, a new society for animal
lovers who have made the important decision and included the FM Humane Society in their
estate planning. Members of the Legacy Society will have their names printed in the newslet-
ter and receive special invitations to various events of the FM Humane Society. To become a
founding member of the Legacy Society, please fill out the form below and mail it to the FM
Humane Society.

Letters can be mailed to: Nukhet Hendricks, FM Humane Society, 1201 28th Ave N, Fargo, ND,
