Merf Dog Send-off

Venice lost a legend today. He helped hundreds of us. Let’s send him off in style.

Do what you can, anything helps.

What the money will be used for- ALL monies will go into a special account solely accessed by Merf’s mother, Lorna Crosby. The purpose of the funds is to entirely cover the cost of his cremation, a memorial of some kind with food on his birthday, April 2nd, and eventually a boat ceremony and proper send-off ash spreading celebration TBD. Any remaining money is to help his mother with any loose ends, his animals, and primarily for the house payments so she doesn’t have to stress while she figures it out.

Thanks for your generosity, please share!
