Once again, I'm participating virtually in "Strut Your Mutt" on behalf of the East Orange Animal Alliance, a 501c3 organization I co-founded in November of 2019 to provide resources that enable the City of East Orange, NJ to most effectively care for its at-risk animals and support the people who are dedicated to them.
Much has changed since we began this small but mighty nonprofit, but one thing has never changed: an unwavering commitment to keep dogs and cats out of the East Orange Animal Shelter and in homes. Our work has shifted in large part to community support (supplying a weekly pet food bank, providing much-needed veterinary and behavior support to pet owners, helping to feed the city's community cat population, etc.) on top of the shelter networking work we've always done.
The support that I have received from you all since EOAA’s inception have inspired me to work harder and reach higher. When a loving cat mom emailed a plea for help because she could not afford to neuter her cat who was spraying all over her apartment, and she feared she may have to give him up, we said “it’s okay, we will pay for the neutering, and make you an appointment.” We can help because you help us.
So, I humbly ask you to consider donating to this “Strut you Mutt” fundraiser so that we can continue supporting these vital efforts for our neighbors in East Orange.
