I am participating in Strut Your Mutt in Kanab, Utah, and have once again chosen to raise money for our local Best Friends Network Partner, Because Animal Matter, in Hurricane, UT. They are the wonderful people who rescued my dog Sage from a dire hoarding situation and fostered him with exquisite tender, loving care until the stars aligned for our paths to meet when I wasn't even looking for another dog. Sage, once terrified of everything, is now strutting around town, going to work with me, and even attended his first National Poetry Convention this year in Santa Fe! A dog once cowering in his crate for most of the day, is now bouncing off the walls, the happiest dog I know!
Last year, we hosted a Community Yard Sale where we recycled gently used items, resold at bargain prices, and were able to raise over $2,000 for BAM! If you are unable to donate or attend the Yard Sale this year, we welcome you to make a donation of any amount to help us reach our team goal of $5,000, most of which helps to pay on-going veterinary bills.
More than anything else, I want to give back to the organization that has given me the gift of Sage.
Thank you for helping us help BAM help more animals.
