This year I’m participating in Strut Your Mutt event, a fundraising walk hosted by Best Friends that saves the lives of homeless pets right here in my community and all across the country. The live walk event is happening October 19, 2019 at Cesar Chavez Park in Phoenix, Arizona. I've choosen to walk in memory of my dog and support my favorite local rescue group ARIZONA BOSTON TERRIER RESCUE.
My very first boston terrier of 11 years crossed over the rainbow bridge this Febuary as she was losing her battle with cancer. She was such a sweet girl, full of energy, love and lots of kisses. After loosing her our house was so quiet with out those piggy snorts and the steady jingle of her collar made even our younger chocolate lab depressed. I contacted the rescue in hopes of finding a friend for our lab and was able to sign up to be a volunteer/foster right away.
I was surpised at the amount of homeless pets we have in our community; if it wasnt for the rescue most of these pets would be put down due to simple - severe medical issues or that there is no space to shelter them. It is very fullfilling helping a pet in need get back to health and find a new furever home for them. It does take a lot of time, and vet bills to care for these furry sweet clowns but because of awesome FUNdraisers like this one they are able to keep saving these pets lives and so can you!
Please help support me by joining my team, or registering for yourself or a team in support of my network teams page, Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue. Your gift helps homeless pets and will support the animal welfare group I’ve chosen to walk for.
