Thank you for visiting my Strut Your Mutt fundraising page for English Springer Rescue America, Inc.
Strut Your Mutt is a series of huge events - with a community dog walk, 5K run, and even a dog-themed festival - hosted by Best Friends Animal Society in cities across America.People like me "strut” at the event to raise money either for Best Friends Animal Society or for a local animal welfare group. I am walking for ESRA!
It’s a lot of fun, but here’s really why I’m participating. Every day pets are killed in America's shelters simply because they don't have homes. Each one could have been someone’s furry buddy, if given a proper chance. **After an extensive data collection effort, findings show that the number of dogs and cats killed daily in shelters has dropped from 9,000 to 5,500 over the last six years. This is tremendous progress, and everyone who has ever helped save a life, be it an organization, or an individual adopter should feel proud that you have helped reduce this number. However, even one animal a day is too many, and we will continue to work together to Save Them All. The money raised through Strut Your Mutt funds adoption programs, spay/neuter services, and medical expenses.
Best Friends and the Strut Your Mutt participating groups (collectively called the No More Homeless Pets Network) know these programs will save all of those homeless pets from being killed in shelters; they just need the help of people like you and me.
And I need your help to reach my fundraising goal. Can I count on your donation? It’s tax-deductible for you, and the great thing is ESRA keeps all the money it raises (after transaction fees).
Together, we can Save Them All®.
Thank you for your support!
