Strut Your Mutt, hosted by Best Friends Animal Society, is an annual fundraising event that saves the lives of our furry friends in shelters across America. Every day, nearly 5,500 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters, simply because they don't have safe places to call home. However, wonderful organizations around the country are working to change this...organizations like Foster Dogs, Inc.!
Foster Dogs, Inc. helps animal rescues find temporary foster homes for adoptable dogs so that they can live in a loving and safe environment while waiting for a "forever" home. The organization also provides foster dog parents with knowledge, resources, and support throughout their entire foster experience. Additionally, Foster Dogs, Inc. offers educational workshops, adoption events, and special programming (such as their Fospice Program for terminally ill or aging dogs in need of homes). Virtually all programs and services are free of charge. Overall, Foster Dogs, Inc. works to nurture a dynamic, supportive community of animal rescuers, foster dog parents, dog adopters, and dog lovers.
Foster Dogs, Inc. has been a part of my life for over 6 years - as a volunteer, steering committee member, foster dog parent, adoptive dog parent, and member of the board of directors. The organization inspired me to get more involved in dog rescue work, and along the way I became part of a unique community of people (and pups) working to make change. The money we raise through events like Strut Your Mutt will go toward supporting community education and events, donating necessary items to rescue groups in the tri-state area, hosting adoption events, expanding vital programming and services, and much more.
Please consider making a donation. Any amount is greatly appreciated, and tax-deductible. Foster Dogs, Inc. will receive 100% of your donation. Many thanks!
