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.
Jim and I, along with Maverick and Roxy, will be strutting with Team FOJA. Friends of Jacksonville Animals is a 501c3 formed by a group of ladies wanting to help the animals of our community who find themselves, through no fault of their own, at our city shelter - Animal Care and Protective Services. FOJA purchases all the immiticide to treat the heartworm positive dogs that come into the shelter - an expense that has mounted over $40,000 thus far this year. Before FOJA, heartworm positive dogs were euthanized - unadoptable because of the expense of treatment. FOJA also provides medical care for shelter animals that can't be treated at the shelter by the veterinary staff. FOJA holds adoption events to help the shelter animals find their forever home. FOJA also promotes spay/neuter and educates the public about responsible pet ownership and the need to combat animal abuse and neglect. I am proud to be a long time FOJA volunteer.
Jim and I and our pups will be strutting once again in memory of our Markson. We adopted him in 2006 from a rescue and he was our introduction to the rescue world. Roxy and Maverick are both from our city shelter - Animal Care & Protective Services. Our shelter is beyond FULL and FOJA has been able to say YES! to many requests for medical help for the animals housed there. We NEVER want to have to say no because we don't have enough money. We need your help this year more than ever. This charity walk is a lot of fun. FOJA will keep all the money it raises at this walk and it will be used to benefit the animals at our city shelter. We need your help and support.
Please go to my page and make a donation to help the homeless animals in our community -
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). If you can't donate, then consider joining Team FOJA and "Strut Your Mutt" with us!!!
Together, we can Save Them All.
