For the third year in a row, I am fundraising as a team member of the Rescue Haven (fka FernDog Rescue) Strut Your Mutt team. Strut Your Mutt is a nationwide mega fundraising event and dog walk put on annually by Best Friends Animal Society in cities across the nation. Since 2014, it has been our small, foster-based, volunteer-run rescue group's most successful fundraiser of the year. This year's event, which takes place on October 7th in Manhattan, is particularly special to me as I joined Best Friends as an employee this past December when they offered me a dream job.
As an employee I have been able to see, firsthand, how Best Friends prioritizes supporting communities, rescue organizations and shelters over their own recognition as a leading national animal welfare organization, in order to achieve their mission to Save Them All. Best Friends has resolved to end the needless killing in American animal shelters by the year 2025, and we are on track to do just that thanks to the work of organizations like Rescue Haven.
Strut Your Mutt is the perfect example of how Best Friends supports local initiatives to Save Them All. Every single penny raised by team members goes to their team's rescue group - these funds will go directly towards the care of our foster dogs. Thank you for contributing to my Strut Your Mutt fundraising efforts so that Rescue Haven can continue contributing to Best Friends' mission to Save Them All. Your donation is tax deductible and 100% of that money will go directly to the dogs in our care.
