The HolliBell Foundation raises funds throughout the year to help animals in many areas. Whether it be working with rescues to chip away at the over population of strays and ferals, whether it's to give temporary help to low income families that require assistance keeping their pets or whether it's an emergency situation that requires funding, the HolliBell Foundation hopes to provide this relief.

Here are some of our past contributions:

Year 5 - here we come! Already donations made this year!

Cupcakes for a Cause is made up of two fantastic ladies who know how to bake, Yum Yum! Not only are they delicious but they are baked with love and the main goal is to raise money for animals in need. I have been blessed to receive donations from them over the past couple years, which I have used for vet funds for the care of kittens and cat in our rescue. A big hug to these ladies and Cupcakes for a Cause for their tireless fundraising. Shelly Dickie (founder of Dickies Cause 4 Paws, a non-profit kitten rescue as well as TNR)

I have known Heidi for many years and the one thing that has never changed is her unwavering support of animals and tireless effort to help those in need. From going out of her way with hours of free time and money working with Caroline doing baking and fundraisers, the two of them have saved and supported countless rescues. I've always enjoyed being able to support the many fundraising events they've done and thanks to them welcome my most recent family member Elliot. Thank you to both of you for the tireless work you do on a daily basis! Love Christine and Elliot
