Strut Your Mutt to save lives! All the cool kids (and pups) are doing it. This year’s event is on October 5, 2019 at Hudson River Park in NYC. Foster Dogs Inc. is teaming up with Best Friends Animal Society for our 4th year of fundraising (our 8th year walking), to help save the lives of homeless animals, at Strut Your Mutt this Fall. Join us!
A bit little about us: Foster Dogs, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that connects rescue organizations, adopters, fosters, and other partners together in our shared mission to help animals in need. We believe that we can help lower the number of animals euthanized in shelters by encouraging and educating about fostering. Fostering a dog saves 2 lives, the dog who moves into the foster home and the dog who takes that empty place in the shelter.
Your donations to our Strut Your Mutt campaign will help fund programs including:
- Foster Roster: Our one-of-a-kind online database of foster caretakers in the NYC area that allows us to match dogs in need with appropriate foster homes. This program is offered for free to any approved participating shelter or foster-based rescue organizations
- Foster Education Series: Foster Dogs has developed a stellar education program that we offer for no charge to our foster community. Offered in Manhattan, our workshops are designed for anyone interested in fostering or improving their lifesaving expertise. We hope to soon make these available over the web to those interested outside of NYC! We need more funding to make that happen.
- Chloe's Fospice Friends: Named for our departed friend Chloe Kardoggian, this program assists elderly or terminally ill shelter dogs in finding “forever foster” placements. We support both the dog and the fosters throughout their journey, providing the dogs with much needed vet care, love, and dignity during their final months.
Please join us by registering to walk with our team (in-person or virtually) or by donating to one of our team members or the general team fund. Your donation is tax-deductible and we at Foster Dogs keep 100% of the money raised after transaction fees. In 2018, our team raised over $48,000 - thanks to YOU! This year we want to raise another $25,000...and you can help us get there!
Together, we can #SaveThemAll
Thank you for your support!
