Before we get down to business, you may have noticed the URL for this page contains "Strut Your Moody Mutt." Ok, now you noticed this (you're welcome). This is for three reasons:
1) My last name is Moody and it's my personal page for this event so it should have my name, right? And
2) The canine I will be walking with is my puppy, Jade. She is currently in the stage where she likes to throw mini-tantrums when she doesn't get her way a.k.a. she's a moody butt. She's also a mutt THEREFORE ... MOODY MUTT! Which is point 3.
Ok, real talk.
Everyone knows that there are shelters across the country (and world, but one step at a time), and many of these shelters are forced to kill their residents to make room for more homeless animals. Those animals on death row are the reason we're here, but what can we do?
That's right! We walk. Not what you thought I was going to say, eh?
But that's exactly what's happening. People nationwide are walking to save the lives of homeless pets!
This year, I’m participating in Strut Your Mutt, a fundraising walk hosted by Best Friends that saves the lives of homeless pets right here in my community and all across the country.
Every dollar counts. All proceeds go to Best Friends Animal Society. Even if you are unable to donate, please share!
This cause means so much to me and I am grateful for your help.
Every day, 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 animal, just like yours and mine.
Together, we can Save Them All and reduce that number to zero.
We can save the fluffy ones.
The scaly ones.
The feathery ones.
The... All of them.
