Rudy's Fund for the Animals

Rudy’s Fund was established by Fringe Benefits Thrift Store in 2010 in loving memory of Ruth Zabel, one of the founders of Fringe Benefits. This fund is generated by private donations and special events and fundraisers hosted by Fringe Benefits and other supporters. It is available to humane programs or organizations that are local, national, or worldwide. It directly benefits animals in special and emergency situations where funding may need to be expedited. Fringe Benefits works to keep Rudy’s Fund readily available. Funding through Rudy's Fund may be available without solicitation or going through the application process.
