Thank you for visiting our Strut Your Mutt Team page. 2017 marks the 8th straight year that OPIN (Outreach to Pets In Need) has participated in the Strut Your Mutt event. And each year, we have a blast!
This year we are walking in honor of Bella, one of the first pets we saved this year. Bella is an 8-year old poodle that we took in. After her visit to the vet, it was discovered that Bella had large bladder and anal tumors that needed immediate care. Bella first underwent IV chemotherapy and now is being given an oral version of chemo. She is under the loving care of The Veterinary Cancer Center in Norwalk, CT and is doing fantastic. Her foster mom says she is quite a character. Once Bella receives her clean bill of health, she will be looking for a new home. Until then, we will care for her like one of our very own pets.
Bella is just one of the stories we have this year. All year long, we are helping pets like Bella start a new life, or helping community pets stay in their homes or avoid euthanasia by offering financial assistance to owners who find themselves in a financial crisis but need emergency or other care for their furry family member. Or, maybe it's the pet owned by a victim of domestic violence. OPIN is there 24/7 to step in and offer a safe haven foster home until the pet's owner can secure a safe place away from the abuser. One by one by one, we are making a difference thanks to your support.
Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Even if you're not planning to walk with us the day of the event, you can still register and help us fundraise or just pass along our link to family and friends. Tell them about all the good work that OPIN does to save pets all year long. Our team goal is to raise $10,000.00 this year and with your help, we think we can make it.
Your donation is tax deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100 percent of the money that’s raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of homeless pets.
Together, we can Save Them All.
Thank you for your support!
