Jane Seik Memorial Endowment 

As Animal Friends Alliance continues to grow, we are taking steps to secure our organization financially with the expectation that our services will be needed for a long time to come. To this end, we have opened an endowment fund with the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado, in honor of one of our first volunteers, Jane Seik. To honor Jane’s memory and further stabilize our organization, the Jane Seik Memorial Endowment will help us continue providing shelter and adoption for over 3,500 homeless cats and dogs each year.

Help us to continue to grow our endowment in Jane Seik’s honor by donating through the form below. (To arrange a donation of stocks or mutual funds, please email development@savinganimalstoday.org.)

About Jane Ellen Warner-Seik

October 31, 1937 – March 22, 2013

Jane Seik was a critical part of Animal Friends Alliance’s success from the very beginning and was an extremely active volunteer for over six years, until succumbing to cancer in March of 2013.  She was one of our first volunteers, and was unquestionably the most dedicated. Jane fulfilled myriad volunteer responsibilities, from adoption counseling to caring for orphaned kittens that required around-the-clock attention. She helped the organization in every possible way, working as the clinic receptionist, fostering, and even washing dishes and scrubbing litter boxes. Jane and her husband Larry fostered over 45 cats for the Alliance and adopted several special needs kitties.  She was a woman of great compassion, and a force to be reckoned with. She was presented with the our Above & Beyond Award in 2012, and her strength, wisdom, dedication, and love for the kitties will always be an inspiration.
