Dear Friends of Rescuzilla,
We're excited to participate in our 5th Strut Your Mutt charity walk! That's like 35 dog years! In that time we've continued our mission here in NYC and grown to rescue as far south as Georgia. Our mission has also expanded to helping prevent pet overpopulation by providing spay/neuter assistance to underserved areas. By addressing the root of pet homelessness we can create a larger impact on decreasing the number of dogs and cats euthanized in shelters every day simply because there is no space. Our all-volunteer run, foster-based rescue keeps 100% of funds raised (less transaction fees) so your donations will go a long way!
Woof, Meow, Love,
Carolina & Katherine
WHY WE STRUT...
We strut for dogs like Bartleby!
Bartleby was a sight for sore eyes when we first found out about him. He was on hold for a possible cruelty investigation at our local municipal shelter, so filthy and severely matted that they were unable to complete a basic medical exam on him. With no leads in the case, the hold was released, the mats were shaved off, and we inherited a quirky little character that was intent on making the most of his second chance! We brought him to the best veterinarians in NYC to make sure we could find an adopter who could address his medical needs, and it turned out that Bartleby was completely, 100% blind. He sure had us fooled! Bartleby soon became an all-time Rescuzilla favorite, stealing the hearts of everyone he came across. His new mom drove all the way down from Boston (twice!) to make him hers, and they now make regular visits to the School for the Blind together to spread the Bartleby joy to kids like him.
For Bartleby, and thousands of animals like him, the money we are raising will go directly to save lives, fund adoption programs and spay/neuter services, and keep animals out of shelters.
