Thank you for visiting our Strut Your Mutt Team page. We’re raising money to help end the killing of pets in America’s shelters. Every day, more than 4,100 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters simply because they don't have safe places to call home.
Here at Pound Hounds Res-Q, our goal is to make that number zero. We are a foster based rescue that operates in the northeast, primarily saving the lives of dogs in the New York City shelter system.
Since our inception in 2014, we have saved the lives of over 550 dogs and cats and we have spent roughly $200,000 on their care. Between routine vet care, emergency room visits, pneumonia, cancer, training, transport, and boarding the expenses are vast but oh so worth it.
Pound Hounds was founded by a New York Animal Care & Control (NYACC) volunteer who was overwhelmed at the number of animals that were being euthanized at the very shelter she was volunteering. Every week she would go to walk dogs that would never see themselves safe and out of the shelter. She needed to do something about that and formed Pound Hounds. Her beloved Brutus, her first Pit Bull, and Pound Hounds Mascot was rescued at that very shelter.
We believe that rescuing is the first step in saving an animal. After you rescue an animal, that’s when the real part of rescue begins. That is where rehabilitation takes place. Rehabilitating has many facets, whether it be physically or emotionally and placing that animal in a home where it will flourish. Oftentimes, the rehabilitation process comprises of retraining and vetting. Many of these animals have been neglected and need attention health-wise to be ready for adoption. Only at that point is that animal ready for its forever home.
We take every animal and rescue seriously. We devote all our time, energy and funding towards these animals.
Please join us in our efforts to continue to save lives either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and we keep 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of homeless pets.
Together, we can Save Them All.
Thank you for your support!
