~YOUR GIFT PROVIDES VETERINARY CARE FOR A BOXER IN NEED~
For the past six years, Strut Your Mutt has been critical to our ability to serve the most vulnerable boxers in northern California - the ill, injured, senior, and those otherwise at greatest risk of shelter euthanasia. We are grateful 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 adult dog in our care costs our organization about four times its adoption fee, and each senior costs about 15 times its adoption fee. We are able to sustain these costs thanks to each of you who supports us through Strut Your Mutt.
Last year, with your support, our Strut Your Mutt team raised just over $97,000, and was the top team in the nation!
Since the beginning of 2021, these funds helped us to provide care for 97 dogs, more than one in four of whom were senior.
Petey, a goofball of a senior who suffered life-threatening gastric dilation and volvulus in the shelter and was rushed directly to an ER for emergency surgery.
Izzy, a beautiful young girl whose family saw in her only her potential to produce puppies but were unwilling or unable to help her when her unborn puppies died and needed to be surgically removed.
Benson, a gentle, blind senior left at the shelter with terminal cancer.
Clint, a tenderhearted boy who entered our care with severe injuries, most likely due to being hit by a car, and required orthopedic surgery.
Thor, a dashing fellow whose family was unable to pursue costly vet care to diagnose and treat immune-mediated polyarthritis.
Princess, a sociable senior girl surrendered with a large ulcerated sore that had developed due to her never having a soft surface to sleep on.
Maggie, who entered our care emaciated at 28 pounds, simply because nobody had bothered to feed her.
These dogs and so many others have benefitted from NCBR's work and from the support of caring people like you.
