Thank you for visiting our Strut Your Mutt Team page.
We are excited and grateful to be involved in Strut Your Mutt for the first time this year.
Our goal is to raise $5,000 to help us to continue and expand our rescue of ill, injured, neglected and abused dogs in Central Florida.
This has been a difficult year so far but we have not shied away from the most difficult of cases, saving many dogs like the ones highlighted here.
Lucha - abandoned at just 9 weeks old next to a dumpster, with a congenital birth defect causing some of her vertebrae to be pushed together very tightly resulting in partial paralysis
Ember - dropped off at the county shelter with toenails missing from all four paws and her back two feet degloved, likely the result of direct physical abuse.
Kahlo - a 4 month old puppy dropped at the county shelter with a T8-T9 vertebrae break and T13-L1 fracture, leaving her back end completely paralyzed
Diamond - abused during a domestic violence altercation resulting in a broken lower jaw, a fractured upper jaw and trauma to her liver
These dogs, like all of the dogs who have been brought into our family, are now receiving the best of care and love.
With your support we will be able to continue to make a difference in the lives of many dogs by giving them the medical attention they urgently need and finding them loving and responsible forever homes. We will also be able to expand other community services we provide such as the re-homing assistance program, helping dogs find new homes and avoiding their surrender to local shelters.
Healing the broken and giving them a fresh start is what motivates us to save as many dogs as possible every day.
