Thank you for visiting my Strut Your Mutt fundraising page.
Strut Your Mutt isn’t your average dog walk. Hosted by Best Friends Animal Society, it’s a huge festival with dog friendly events that raises money for a cause — saving the lives of animals in shelters across America.
Every day, more than 9,000 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters simply because they don't have safe places to call home. Each one could have been someone’s furry buddy, if given a chance. That’s why I’m joining thousands of fellow supporters in 14 festival cities and online to take part in this incredible fundraising event. Any donations made to my page will go to my team, Friends of Jacksonville Animals.
Since 2008, Friends of Jacksonville Animals has been supporting Jacksonville's city animal shelter, Animal Care & Protective Services. The city has funds to provide only the very basic services to the shelter animals. We are proud that we are able to provide funding above the basics to help those animals that would not otherwise receive the care that they need to become adoptable. We work very hard to raise money so that more animals can be adopted into loving homes. To date, Strut Your Mutt is our largest fundraiser, and provides us the financial backing we need to continue our important work helping shelter animals. Won't you please help me raise my goal of $300.00 by donating to my page? No amount is too small and any amount is greatly appreciated.
Last year, with your donations, FOJA was able to spend $129,000 on programs that directly benefit the animals.
This included printers for all the ACO vehicles... to allow them to work more efficiently and get to more calls, saving more lives in the process.
This included $43,000 for heart worm treatments for dogs. To date, this program alone has saved over 2,200 dogs.
Last year, we were challenged with high medical bills from funding several major orthopaedic surgeries, cancer treatments, diagnostics and treatments at specialty vet offices, and so much more.
We are incredibly humbled and honored that you would give your dollars to FOJA making it possible for us to always say yes when the question is "Can you help?"
I need your help to reach my goal. Can I count on your donation for this sponsored walk? It’s tax-deductible for you, and the great thing is each participating animal welfare organization keeps all the money it raises (after transaction fees).
Together, we can Save Them All.
