Thank you for visiting our Strut Your Mutt Team page. We are raising money for Give Me Shelter Project, which will allow us to help more cats strut their stuff to forever homes!
Our story began in 2008 when we were part of a small group of independent rescuers who came together to rescue 88 cats from an eviction situation. Most of the cats were not friendly enough to be adopted. We searched and found placements far and wide (8 cats were flown to a sanctuary in Arizona!).
We undertook similar rescues in 2010/2011 and another major rescue in 2012. Many agencies advised us to turn the cats over to the local “kill” shelter. Instead, we felt compelled to consider the life of each individual cat and do all we could to protect that life, forming Give Me Shelter Project in 2011 to focus on just that!
Along the way, we’ve rescued hundreds of other cats who found themselves in dire situations - like Allison who was trapped in an abandoned building, and Becky who was blind and living on the street. Hobo was hit by a car and found on the side of the road with a broken arm. We currently have over 150 kittens and cats in our care and are dedicated to providing each one with necessary medical and foster care and, most importantly, their forever loving homes.
We strive to promote the concept that EACH ANIMAL COUNTS.
