xena fund in key west tie dye shirt fundraiser

For the last two years the Running of the Chihuahuas held near Cinco de Mayo by Rick’s and Durty Harry’s complex has benefited the Xena Fund. Also, just catching on is the All Pet Stroll during the Conch Republic Anniversary celebration in April, she said.

The Xena Fund works with Friends of Animals, Ms. Senturia pointed out, and takes calls from vets and owners. In addition to emergency veterinarian care, the fund periodically holds Healthy Pet Days when local vets offer free consulting, including free heartworm testing.

Tie-dyed tanks and T-shirts by artist Mallory Mike with a line drawing of Xena are available for $20 and delivery is free in Key West.

Another artist, Deb Pansier, who makes dog collars and leashes, created an ID tag with Xena’s picture on it and donates all profits from the tags.

Meanwhile, they just keep on keeping on. Ms. Senturia quoted tennis legend and AIDS statistic Arthur Ashe: “Start where you are, use what you have and do what you can.” Anybody with a furry or even a scaly family member knows how important that can be.

The Xena Fund is located at 1623 Laird St. It can be reached at (305) 432-0494 or by visiting xenafund.com. Donations of cash or checks are gratefully accepted at any branch of Centennial Bank; tell them it’s for the Xena Fund.
