Thank you for taking the time to check out my Strut Your Mutt fundraising page!
Strut Your Mutt, hosted by Best Friends Animal Society, is an annual fundraising event that saves the lives of our furry friends in shelters across America. Toby, Missy and I are actually part of the "Your Dog's Friend" Strut Your Mutt Team. Your Dog's Friend is a local, nonprofit organization located in Rockville, MD that helps pets stay out of shelters by educating owners to be better pet parents. They offer a variety of free seminars on training, aggressive behavior, separation anxiety, pet nutrition, etc. as well as a bunch of different classes (for a reasonable fee) to help you keep your pet healthy and engaged. Toby has completed all 5 levels of Nosework and we are currently in level 2 of Agility training. The instructors are pretty awesome and teach you how to be the best guardian you can for your pet. Check them out at http://yourdogsfriend.org/. You won't be disappointed.
So why am I joining thousands of fellow animal lovers and taking part in the event? Every day, nearly 5,500 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters, simply because they don't have safe places to call home. Your Dog's Friend endeavors to prevent house pets being placed in shelters by educating their human guardians to safely and correctly address behavior issues and provide a happy environment for all members of the family.
That is where you come in: I need your help to reach my goal. If you are able, please make a donation today and help save the lives of homeless pets by supporting the "Your Dog's Friend" team. Your donation is tax-deductible. And what’s great is that each participating animal welfare group - in our case "Your Dog's Friend" - keeps all the money it raises (after transaction fees).
Thank you for making a lifesaving gift to the animals and for helping to Save Them All!
