2019 New York City Strut Your Mutt

Scootin for Scooter

Scootin for Scooter is back for another wagon ride, or maybe backpack ride, to raise money for Best Friends Animal Society as they work tirelessly nationwide to ensure that every healthy and treatable animal has the positive outcome it deserves. Every animal welfare organization is worthy of our love and support, and deep down I walk for every individual and organization dedicated to lifesaving, but Best Friends channeled my passion, launched my career, and became an extension of my family and I’d love to see what we can all do to support their mission.

Why We Strut:

Before I discovered Scooter on Petfinder in 2014, our adoption experience was tough. Our applications kept getting denied or ignored and we nearly gave up on adopting altogether. We discovered Scooter, a puppy mill survivor, on Petfinder and finally a rescue gave us the YES we desperately hoped for. That yes, and Scooter’s recovery process, changed my life and his. Scooter finally began to experience the love he deserved, and I launched myself into the animal welfare world, fostering and volunteering, until I eventually wanted to do more and switched careers.

We Strut to celebrate Scooter’s new life.
We Strut to honor the dozens of lives we’ve impacted through fostering and all of the lives we have yet to meet.
We Strut for all of the dogs sitting on wire in puppy mills, waiting to be rescued.
We Strut to celebrate how my life has changed.
We Strut to appreciate the “yes” that started it all.
We Strut to benefit Best Friends Animal Society as they rally behind the nation’s municipal shelters, pet owners, and each individual animal life, in a Herculean effort to Save Them All. 

Your donation to Scootin for Scooter will brighten my day and demonstrate that we can all do something right now (volunteer, foster, adopt, DONATE) to support pets and pet owners.

Scooter and I are deeply grateful for your support!
