The gift of touch is a gift from the heart. Throughout the month of February, for every $25 you donate to Friends United with the Richmond Shelter (FURS), Canine Massage FX will donate a massage to a FURS dog of your choice. In addition, you will receive a 25% discount off a massage for your own canine friend in the Richmond area.

100% of your donation goes directly to FURS for medical care, housing, training and adoption of FURS dogs. Simply select the dog you wish to sponsor and enter their name in the field provided on the contribution page.

FURS is a non-profit, all volunteer dog rescue and adoption group in Richmond, VA that takes in a high percentage of senior, special needs and hospice cases. Many of these dogs come from situations of abuse, neglect and homelessness and carry with them the weight of their past. FURS provides these dogs with the love and care they need both physically and emotionally until they can find a home to call their own.

Massage for these dogs will provide a great deal of relief from stress, age related issues and previous abuse to both body and spirit. Not only does massage feel good, it can profoundly change a dogs attitude and increase their comfort level by targeting blocked, imbalanced, underutilized and compromised systems.

Touch is a powerful tool that not only has the ability to reroute neural pathways, but is essential for all well being. The gift of massage would be a well deserved treat for any of these dogs and is a great way to warm your own heart this Valentine's season.
