Thank you for visiting our Strut Your Mutt Team page. We’re raising money to help end the killing of pets in America’s shelters. And we plan on having a lot of fun doing it!
Storm is unable to walk at Strut, but he is still going to participate in Strut Your Mutt to raise money for the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge, Inc (RBARI) through his team page, and you can too!
“Hi everyone! My name is Storm, and before I knew RBARI, I was scared and alone. It was so hot outside, and I was wandering around, not knowing where to go. Then, it started pouring with thunder and lightning. There were floods around, and I was so scared. I found a building to hide under. My legs were so tired that I collapsed and waited. It seemed like an eternity before someone found me and put me in their van. I couldn’t walk any more. I heard them talking on the phone about going to the hospital and a place called the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge. It all sounded scary, but at least they had given me a drink of water, and I was now dry and cool.
The next few days I was pretty nervous. I went to a place they called the hospital and had lots of people around all the time taking care of me. I have never had so many people take care of me before. I had a full water dish and food bowl and a soft bed! All I wanted to do was sleep, then eat when I would wake up. I was sore, but they gave me medicine, and I was finally comfortable.
When I was feeling better, they told me again about a place called RBARI, where I would find friends and love and would be able to look for a family of my own. I got in the car again, and this time I wasn’t as scared. When I got to RBARI, I met a lot of nice friends, found a room and bed of my own and even got to walk around on the grass and take so many walks with my friends every day! I never walk alone any more, and it feels so good.”
As the leading no-kill animal shelter in Northern New Jersey, RBARI is dedicated to the dream that someday soon, that number will be zero. That’s why our team is participating in Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt event to raise money for animals. But we need your help, too.
Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100% of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of homeless pets.
When Storm was rescued, he couldn’t even stand up, but today he is strutting alongside RBARI and help raise money for friends who are still out there, trying to find a place like RBARI to give them hope. Please make a donation today to help give hope to those homeless animals who have been searching for so long for love.
Together, we can Save More Lives, as we Save Them All.
Thank you for your support!
