A Golden Legacy of Love and Compassion

Fisher, a beloved Golden Retriever and K9 Ambassador at Crystal Mountain, left a profound impact through his love and companionship. Following his sudden passing, Jeff Rabidoux, Fisher's owner, was touched by the outpouring of support and love from the community, including those who knew Fisher only through stories and social media.

To honor Fisher’s memory, Jeff and his wife Katie established the "Fisher Fund." This initiative, within the Benzie Sunrise Rotary Club's Rotary Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, assists pets in need of medical care when their owners face financial challenges. The fund is a testament to Fisher's enduring spirit, continuing his legacy of kindness and compassion.

Support Fisher's Legacy: Your tax-deductible donation to the Benzie Sunrise Rotary Foundation Inc. helps keep Fisher's loving spirit alive, providing essential care to pets in need.
