I’m excited to share a great upcoming event from the fabulous lifesavers Best Friends Animal Society and report that Mason and I will be able to join the fun—that supports for the best kind of cause—in Portland!
Strut Your Mutt is an annual fundraiser that includes a walk and festival in nine cities across the U.S. The goal? No more homeless pets, no more shelter deaths.
“EVERY DAY, more than 9,000 pets are unnecessarily killed in America’s shelters simply because they don’t have a home. Each one an individual. Each one a valued life worth saving. 9,000.
That number should be zero. And it can be. Best Friends Animal Society and our No More Homeless Pets Network Partners are joining together to bring that number to zero.
The donations raised through Strut Your Mutt will be used to fund lifesaving adoption programs and spay/neuter services, to ultimately impact the number of pets entering and leaving the shelters.
Please join us for this fun-filled event either by registering for the event or donating to a participant. Together, and through your support, we can save lives and bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets®
To get involved or learn more about the work of Best Friends Animal Society, please visit bestfriends.org.”
Last year, Strut Your Mutt raised $700,000 for Best Friends and the partner organizations local to the cities in which the events took place. With more cities taking part this year, the fundraising goal is one million dollars! Find the list of organizations that will benefit in each city here.
Find registration info for each event, and details on how to help raise funds, here. The walks are one mile followed by a festival and fun for the whole family. If there isn’t a Strut Your Mutt event near you, you can also participate virtually by registering to “Strut Across America.”
