Thank you for visiting my Strut Your Mutt fundraising page.
I am aupporting Animals-R-Famly which is an all-volunteer rescue organization based out of Stamford, CT. I need your help to reach my goal.
Readying rescued animals for adoption requires medical exams, microchips, collars and more.
Animals-R-family doesn't have a bricks-and-mortar building. Instead, our network of volunteers foster the dogs we take on and the money we raise goes directly to pay the expenses incurred to get the dogs ready to be adopted.
I adopted my dog Hope through Animals-R-Family two and a half years ago. Animals-R-Family worked with Pilots to the Rescue and a rescue group in North Carolina to bring Hope to CT. Animals-R-Family paid for Hope's vet bills when she first arrived in CT. Animals-R-Family paid for her blood work, ultrasound, x-rays and Cushings test while she was being fostered.
Please help me support Animals-R-Family by donating to my page for the Strut Your Mutt event on Saturday, October 6, 2018, in NYC. Your donation will enable Animals-R-Family to rescue more dogs like Hope in the coming year.
Without donations, Animals-R-Family cannot do the work they do. Donations to Animals-R-Family are used to pay vet bills. Often the dogs that we take on come to us with various medical issues. The money we raise not only pays for tests and medications but also for surgeries. Working with vets, we get dogs heathy so they can be adopted and we are able to let potential adopters know the current status of each dog's health. The more money we raise, the more dogs we can save. It's that simple.
Strut Your Mutt isn’t your average dog walk. Hosted by Best Friends Animal Society, it’s a huge festival that provides rescue groups with the opportunity to raise the money so they can save more animals.
Can I count on your donation for this sponsored walk? It’s tax-deductible for you, and the great thing is each participating animal welfare organization keeps all the money it raises (after transaction fees).
Every day, more than 9,000 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters simply because they don't have safe places to call home. Each one could have been someone’s furry buddy, if given a chance. That’s why I’m joining thousands of fellow supporters in 14 festival cities and online to take part in this incredible fundraising event.
Together, we can Save Them All.
