Dorothy Wills-Rafferty and FiveSibes/GibStrong donate $1,277.00


Dorothy Wills-Rafferty of FiveSibes coordinated and ran an online auction to benefit three epilepsy groups including TWF. This was  our single largest donation to date. Thanks to Dorothy, Gibby, and everyone who participated.

TWF is named after a Saint Bernard, Wally, who had his life cut short from epilepsy. As a tribute to a much beloved dog TWF was established. TWF believes that no family should have to euthanize a beloved family member for financial reasons. And no dog rescue or animal shelter should have to turn a dog away because of the disease, and expense of treatment.

Wally’s Canine Epilepsy Foundation sole purpose is to assist humans who have canines diagnosed with epilepsy, and dog rescue and animal shelters, in paying for epileptic medications and treatments, and to assist researchers in finding a cure for epilepsy.
