YOUR GIFT PROVIDES VETERINARY CARE FOR A BOXER IN NEED
2020 has been a strange year to say the least, but we are so grateful and excited that, even with the in-person event being canceled, we can still participate in Best Friends' Strut Your Mutt!
For each of the past five years, Strut Your Mutt has been critical to our ability to continue serving the most vulnerable boxers in northern California - the ill, injured, and senior, those needing behavior intervention, and those otherwise at greatest risk of shelter euthanasia. We are proud to be able to serve these dogs, knowing that their expenses are greater than that of the average, healthy, young dog. In fact, on average, each dog in our care costs our organization about four times its adoption fee. We are able to sustain these costs thanks to each of you who supports us through the Strut Your Mutt.
Last year, our Strut Your Mutt team raised just over $73,000. Since the beginning of 2020, these funds helped us to take in dogs like:
Bodie, an adorable big boy who needed a femoral head ostectomy and physical therapy to find relief from severe hip dysplasia.
Buster, rescued from a southern CA shelter with a grapefruit-sized mass hanging from his knee.
Abby, who had been suffering for at least two weeks with a severe bone fracture resulting in her bone penetrating her skin.
Bridget, Goober, Lucy, Sammi, Jeremy, Noodles, Xena and Lambert - all hospice dogs, who deserve as much as any of our pets do to end their lives with dignity and enveloped with love.
Tommy, Prescot, Gomer, Lydia, Sophie, Chrissy, Cocoa, Copper, and Sheba- beautiful senior souls who have either found their forever homes or are on their way to doing so!
In just the first six months of 2020, all of these dogs and so many others have benefitted from NCBR's work and from the support of caring people like you.
