As most of you know, this is my 8th year raising money for Rescuzilla, a volunteer-only rescue that I adopted Muggsy from.
This year, like every year, I'm walking for my pups - Mr. Muggs and in memory of Mr. Duke, who passed last year of cancer. Both boys were rescued from the AC&C in Manhattan, a high-kill shelter. For those of you that have not met Muggs, he is a complete goofball who loves swimming, is always smiling and must stop and say hi to anyone he sees walking. Duke loved swimming, pulling the stuffing out of toys and snuggling with his people.
I raise money for Rescuzilla because they are a small rescue dedicated to pulling animals that are overlooked at the shelter and fixing whatever issues they may have before placing them in loving homes. They pulled Muggsy (FKA as Sparkle (yes, really)) because they could see he was a lovable sweetheart but the shelter was making him "kennel crazy". They knew he would never get adopted in that environment and would ultimately be euthanized. I found him through RZ and the rest is history ;) He is the most easy-going and sweet animal who wouldn't have stood a chance at that shelter. The difference these folks make in the lives of these dogs & cats is amazing and I'm so thrilled to continue my support of them. This past year I have gotten more hands-on with their efforts and plan to continue supporting them financially and through volunteering.
There are several ways to get involved:
1. Donate! No amount is too small.
2. Share this email or post my fundraising page on your social media if you have animal lover friends and think they'd be willing to donate.
3. Join me in walking and fundraising! The walk is Saturday October 6th at 9am at Pier 84 in Manhattan. It's always a great time!
4. ADOPT! Angusburger (Gus - pic attached) and many of his other friends (canine & feline) need a home! If you need a laugh, see Gus' YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beS2-C2AQIs&list=PLvi_CzHeP7MYhXctrFcuLXEQnSVKtF9jq
All donations go directly to Rescuzilla's efforts to save dogs & cats from the street or shelters (like Muggs & Duke). They are a volunteer-only rescue that does this amazing work in their spare time. Please give what you can, no amount is too small!
