Once again, CA GSP Rescue will be joining the Best Friends’ Strut Your Mutt charity dog walk! This year’s event is at Exposition Park in Los Angeles on Saturday, October 20, 2018, and we are looking for participants to join our team! In years past, our adopters and volunteers have had a great time meeting other GSPs (and their people) at the walk, and we hope this is our biggest year ever! Our goal is to raise awareness of the more than 4,100 dogs and cats killed in America’s shelters each day and to raise the much needed funds to help the many German Shorthaired Pointers that come through our door. Won’t you walk with us?
Strut Your Mutt is no ordinary dog walking event! This fundraising festival includes interactive games and activities for you, your dog and your whole family! Register today and break those sneakers in for a day of lifesaving milestones.
If you are able to join our team, you and your best friend can walk or run a timed 5K together, and then hang out at a festival for all things dog (and dog-lovers) at this years Los Angeles location! Past events have included doggie yoga, pet portraits, refreshments, music, contests, post-run pet massages and more. Not only will your participation help the California GSP Rescue, but it will also help end the killing of pets in America’s shelters.
We really hope to have as many team participants as possible – we love meeting fellow GSP lovers! However, if you can’t walk with us, please consider making a tax deductible donation towards our race. No amount is too small and will go towards medical expenses for the GSP’s currently in our care at the rescue, and for those that will come through our door in the future. As an all volunteer organization without major funding, we sometimes struggle to make ends meet, especially when we get a number of dogs that need medical attention as we have the past few months. In other businesses, when revenues fall you cut areas of your budget. But in our business, there is no excess to cut – and saying no to a sick dog in a shelter is just not an option. Fundraisers like Strut Your Mutt help us meet our goals of getting GSPs out of shelters, providing housing, food, and medical care, and finding them forever homes. THIS is why we strut!
Just as it was with prior events, when you sign up for the event, you will get your own fundraising page, that will help you get support from friends and family; and allow you to share on Facebook and Twitter to expand your audience to help raise funds, as well. You will also receive a free t-shirt if you register for the timed 5k or raise a minimum of $75 (including the registration fee, which counts as a donation). And there are many other exciting prizes available…keep watching our Facebook page for details!
