For anyone who knows me, you know that I dedicate 95% of my waking hours to Muddy Paws Rescue. I founded MPR in 2016 with a vision of Rescue Done Right, but I had no idea what it would become. Two and half years later, we are now one of the highest volume foster-based rescues in New York City, we have rescued nearly 2500 dogs, and you can’t walk down an NYC street without encountering an alum. I used to visit dog parks and when I told people which rescue I ran, I’d get a polite “Oh, I don’t think I’ve heard of that one…” Now, when I mention Muddy Paws, I usually get a wildly different reaction - if someone hasn’t rescued from us, they know someone who does, or they’ve heard about us while looking to adopt.
We would not be where we are today without our amazing staff, volunteers, foster parents, and YOU, our donors. I’m very proud of the fact that while we are a nonprofit, we very rarely campaign for funding or proactively seek donations. Strut Your Mutt was our biggest fundraising campaign EVER in 2017, raising over $30,000. This year, we want to beat that! Your support will go a long way towards making that happen.
Donate for your dog, donate for your neighbor’s dog, donate for the hundreds of dogs currently sitting in NYC Animal Care Centers. Donate for Shyla, donate for Bailey, donate for Cairo, for Scooter, for Luke. We want to save lives and we want to do it right. Thank you for your support!
