Welcome to Helping Hounds Dog Rescue’s fundraising page! Helping Hounds Dog Rescue (HHDR) provides a compassionate approach to dog rescue by matching homeless dogs from overcrowded shelter systems with loving homes. Our journey began in 2008 when a group of like-minded citizens came together to save a momma beagle and her pups from euthanasia. It didn’t take long for the next dog in need to arrive, and Helping Hounds was incorporated into a not-for-profit organization in January 2009. We have found forever families for over 5,000 dogs and celebrated our 10th anniversary last year!
For the past several years, our annual Pumpkins and Pooches event has been an integral part of our yearly fundraising efforts. Due to COVID-19, we are taking our October event virtual by partnering with Best Friends for Strut Your Mutt! Join us for this virtual walk event. For this virtual event, you can join us no matter where you live. You can walk on one day or several days throughout October 2020.
How can you help support HHDR?
1. Join our team and Strut Your Mutt! Start a personalized page where family, friends, and coworkers can sponsor you to walk. Your $15 registration fee counts as a donation to HHDR and allows you to maximize your fundraising efforts by tracking your miles through the ResQWalk app. You can quickly and easily create your own page allowing others to sponsor you in support of HHDR.
2. Make a donation on our team page! We need your help to reach our fundraising goal of $10,000! Your donation is tax deductible, and HHDR keeps 100% of the money after transaction fees. Don’t forget to ask about matching funds from your employer.
3. Spread the word about this fundraiser! Share our fundraiser on your social media or through email or word of mouth. We appreciate your help getting the word out in CNY and beyond.
Your support makes it possible for us to continue our lifesaving efforts and to expand our services to include humane education for our community’s youth. We hope that you join us for Strut Your Mutt! Thank you for your continued support of our mission.
