Friends of Kona

Friends of Kona helps facilitate behavioral intervention for rescue dogs in shelters. The number one reason that a shelter dog won’t be adopted, or the adoption will fail, is due to behavioral issues. Training and behavioral medicine can be a costly endeavor often counted in the thousands. This is a hard burden to handle for both the shelters and the adopting families. Our program gets money to shelters and people who need it to make more successful adoption matches and create better dogs in the community.

Friends of the Flamingosaurus

MISSION STATEMENT:
The Friends of the Flamingosaurus seeks to unite the community of Hampden and its visitors in the spirit of fun, quirkiness and reinvention through the creation and maintenance of a public art sculpture, the Flamingosaurus, in Roosevelt Park.

OUR GOALS:
The Friends of the Flamingosaurus will facilitate the creation of a new, improved, 3-D, illuminated, 42′ tall version of Baltimore’s iconic Flamingosaurus. Whereas the original adorned the facade of the Cafe Hon at the corner of West 36th Street and Roland Avenue for two decades, the new “phoenix” Flamingosaurus will rise above the trees a mere two blocks away in Roosevelt Park, on the corner of West 36th Street and Falls Road. After installation of the new sculpture, the continued mission of the Friends of the Flamingosaurus will be to maintain the piece by keeping it illuminated at night, making sure it is clean and free of graffiti, seeing to regular upkeep and repair, and performing the administrative tasks necessary to ensure a healthy lifespan for the sculpture.
