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.
Founded in 2004, Waggytail Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization that has rescued over 6,000 abandoned dogs and even a few cats and kittens. Through the tireless work of our many volunteers and amazing fosters, we are committed to continuing to find forever homes for New York's littlest strays. However, even with the efforts of rescues like ours and Best Friends, more than 4,100 dogs and cats are still killed in America's shelters every single day simply because they don't have safe places to call home. That number should be zero. That’s why our team is participating in Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt event to raise money, and we need your help.
Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees.
Another way to help in a non-monetary fashion is to foster one of our pups during the time between being pulled from the shelter and finding their permanent home. So many dogs die just because the don't have a temporary place to go. Fostering also helps us learn a bit more about their quirky traits and needs once they come out of their shell after being scared in the shelter, which helps us better present their profile and match them with a suitable adopter. The time commitment can be as short as a few days, and greatly helps rescues like ours without physical shelter locations. Please visit www.waggytailrescue.org/fosters-needed for more information.
