Thank you for visiting our Strut Your Mutt Team page. We’re raising money to inspire COMPASSION through EDUCATION OUTREACH to create KINDNESS for ALL things and Make A Difference for both People and Animals.
We recently helped a family by providing them with pet food while also spaying and vaccinating their dog Brownie. We also provided their dog Chip with a crate and a Kong toy for chewing. Along with these resources we provided the family with literature to help them with caring for their beloved canine companions. This family in downtown Jacksonville was so grateful for the help. We want to keep helping people and pets just like Brownie and Chip.
Our mission is that we exist to inspire compassion by sharing information through humane education, networking, and outreach to create a kinder world for people, animals, and the environment.
WHAT WE DO
We get out into the community and share information with kids through our education outreach programs visiting schools, after school programs, Girl Scout troops, and summer camps. This past summer 2017 we held our first week-long summer camp where we engaged 27 kids about caring for animals, spay/neuter and adoption, how to coexist with wildlife and marine life, environmental impacts, and how to approach a dog safely.
We have recently started to reach out to people in under served communities to offer resources like pet food, toys, crates, spay/neuter assistance, and vaccinations to their pets. This program is modeled off the HSUS Pets For Life program and serves to help keep pets and people together while also reducing the pet overpopulation and number of pets that end up in our communities shelters.
PET FOOD BIN
We have had a Pet Food Bin at Whole Foods Market – Jacksonville for over a year and have collected pet food donations that we distribute to families in need. By helping people feed their pets it takes the less financial burden off of a struggling families place, allowing them to feed their beloved pet and not have to give the animal up for lack of funding to feed them.
We are not a shelter, but we help people, pets, animals, and the environment through partnerships and connections making a difference in lives every day. We are what we teach. We are SAVING LIVES and CREATING COMPASSION. Help us continue to do the work that we do by joining our Strut Your Mutt team.
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. That’s why our team is participating in Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt event to raise money for animals. But we need your help, too.
Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and every EPIC Outreach keeps 100 percent of the money that’s raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help us to continue making a difference for animals, people, and the planet!
Thank you for your support!
