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 and cat awareness made visible through Trap Neuter Return groups providing informaiton about their mission, cat health, and saving cat lives, and promoting events to help prevent euthanasia. This charity walk is a lot of fun, but here’s really why I’m participating. Every day, more than 5,500 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters simply because they don't have safe places to call home. That number should be zero. My Team, Georgetown Animal Outreach is participating again this year, and will walk many of our adoptable Foster Dogs. I'll be turning 64 on Halloween 10/31/2017, and this year I would love it if my family and friends would donate to my Strut Your Mutt fundraising page to help save animals, in lieu of gifts to me. Knowing that a contribution was made to this fundraising event, would be the best birthday present of all!! My family is well aware of the efforts I am involved in to help save the lives of animals in my community. Whether it is participating in trapping, spay/neuter, fostering, providing information to community groups, or wracking my brain to find ways to raise funds for our cause, it's a huge part of my life. We hold cat and dog adoption events on a regular basis. We have about 10 managed community cat colonies all over Georgetown, that require a lot of volunteer support to ensure that the cats live the best lives possible. Together, we can rescue, foster, provide medical care, and find so many beautiful dogs and cats forever homes! I hope you will help make this event a huge success this year! Thank you so very much!
