Every year, I join my Wags & Walks team and participate in Strut Your Mutt, a fundraising walk hosted by Best Friends.
This year is particularly special to me because I have decided to walk in memory of my sweet girl Heartly who has done this walk with me in years past. Rescued as a puppy from the North Valley shelter, Heartly's story could have looked very different. I am grateul everyday that Wags & Walks rescued her and that she was able to live her life to the fullest for her very short time here with me. Though losing her to cancer at such a young age was one of the hardest losses I've had to endure, I will be forever grateul to have shared that time with her.
Unfortunatley, not every animal has this opportunity. More than 2,200 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters, simply because they don't have safe places to call home. Each one is a loving pet deserving of a loving forever home.
Please help myself, Wags & Walks and Best Friends work toward making that number zero. No amount is too small!
