Thank you for visiting our Strutt With Your Mutt 2019 team page and helping us reach our fundraising goal!
We are participating in the 29th Annual Strutt with your Mutt on Sunday, September 15 in Brookside, in support of Wayside Waifs. Wayside Waifs is Kansas City's largest and most comprehensive no-kill adoption campus. Wayside cares for over 6,200 abandoned, abused and homeless animals every year.
As a lot of you know, I am now working at Wayside Waifs. Before that, I was a volunteer and I continue to volunteer. Wayside Waifs is MY HAPPY PLACE.
It's also the place that gave us HOOK, our Australian Blue Heeler/Welsh Corgi Mix. We've had Hook for about a year. Hook came to Wayside with his three littermates. They made quite the cute group of pups and were a great mix of heeler/corgi characteristics. I wanted to adopt from Wayside and my husband wanted a blue heeler, so when we were notified that Hook was in the building, we knew we wanted to see him right away. It was love at first sight. We fell in love with Hook's big ears, his loving personality and his crooked tail. You see, Hook came to Wayside with a broken tail tip. The end of his tail is forever in the shape of a shepherd's hook, hence his name was born. He has grown into quite the dog.... he loves to dig, jump, play with other dogs and snuggle. Most of all, he loves his Daddy (my hubby.) He is quite the Daddy's boy and sits on Reed's lap every night when Reed gets home from work. It's such a sight, as he sits on his lap like a child, with his legs hanging down!!!
Please join my team, Hook's Happy Walkers, by either registering to walk (I'd love to have some friends come with me!) and/or making a donation through this page. Wayside is a great organization and relies on private donations to function.
Wayside's mission is preparing pets and people for the bond of their lives. They provide animal adoptions, animal rescues, foster care programs, humane education programs including No More Bullying!, the Bark Park (an off-leash dog park), Whiskers & Wags (an on-site pet retail boutique), pet memorial services, and volunteer opportunities.
With your generous support to Strutt With Your Mutt, you are making a direct impact to the homeless animals at Wayside Waifs, giving them a second chance at finding a fur-ever home! We encourage you to strutt with us on September 15.
Anything you are able to give makes a difference! Please consider making a donation to our team goal! We can't wait to strutt this fall!
