"If I could be half the person my dog is, I'd be twice the human I am". Charles Yu, Author.
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.
I’m fundraising for Joey's Elder Paws' H.E.A.L. (Healing with Empathy and Animal Love) Sanctuary in upstate NY. We are raising money to build our main building with a barn, and a bunk house and playroom for the dogs.
I co-founded Joey's Elder Paws / H.E.A.L. Sanctuary in December 2016 as a tribute to our senior rescue Joey. My steadfast companion and furbaby during a very challenging period in my life, Joey truly rescued me. He taught me that life is an adventure well lived. A free spirit he continues to inspire me today.
I am taking part in Strut your Mutt because there are numerous Joeys waiting in shelters and so many others being killed everyday. "Every Dog Matters" to us at H.E.A.L. Sanctuary and we spare no effort to provide a safe haven to abandoned animals. Currently 13 dogs, six horses, five rabbits, four cats, three mini donkeys, two goats, and various chickens, turkeys, guinea hens have found their home with us. Our rescues are safe with us for life.
So please support my lifesaving efforts by donating to my Strut Your Mutt fundraiser to help us expand our facilities at our Sanctuary in Upstate NY, as together, we can Save Them All. Your donation is tax-deductible. And what’s great is that our rescue 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.
