For those of you who are new and are asking themselves: what is Strut Your Mutt? It’s the walk and fundraising event that saves the lives of pets in communities across the country - completely virtual for 2020.
So Here We go, It’s Time to Virtually STRUT For the Animals!
But first of all, Mission Valley Animal Shelter wants to thank you, one and all, who have helped to support our rescue and care of many abandoned or abused dogs and cats during this tumultuous time!
Now, here we are, ready to launch our Strut Your Mutt campaign for 2020! And, as you know, 2020 is not just like any year! Many of us are not sure how it will end and where it will leave us. On the up side of this more than weird year we're happy to share that we, due to people being stuck at home with lots of time on their hands, were able to find wonderful homes for many of our animals! Unfortunately there is the other side of the coin we are afraid of: Will there be an increase in abandonments and surrenders as those who have lost their livelihoods make the difficult choice to feed their children versus their pets or go back to their normal lives and work schedules. We want to be ready if this should happen.
Therefore it is of utter importance to retain our employees who have been with us long-term and who have been giving loving and exceptional care to our rescues and to be able to provide necessary verterinary care.
You can see why we need to raise funds to ensure ongoing excellence in care, not only for those already sheltered in our facility, but for the surge we might experience as the fallout from the Pandemic continues to snowball.
Please join us either by registering for our team or donating. Will you help us to reach our goal of $5,000?
Your donation is tax deductible and Mission Valley Animal Shelter will get 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help us plan with confidence for an uncertain future. Your gift will mean we can, as a team, continue to offer the high standard of care for which we are known, while helping our rescues to find their forever homes.
Together, we can Save Them All.
Thank you for your support!
Every Team Member that raises $100.00 will receive a tee short and bandanna so you can Strut Your Mutt in style!
