Join us for The Mutt Strutt & Dogs’ Day in the Park!
September 14 (Rain Date September 15) at 9 am on the YCR Trail at the Marge Goodfellow Park in New Freedom, PA
Every year, Animal Rescue, Inc. hosts its year’s largest fundraiser, Dogs’ Day in the Park! Last year, we brought back the walk, too! The appropriately named Mutt Strutt gives followers like you a chance to raise pledges for this Sanctuary for Life.
How can your contributions help the hundreds of dogs and cats that call the Rescue their home?
$10 will provide rabies and distemper vaccines to a dog or cat
$30 will spay or neuter a cat and help reduce feline overpopulation
$50 will feed a dog for 30 days at the rescue
$100 will feed 5 cats for one month
$500 will cover a necessary surgery for a dog or cat
$1,000 will cover an emergency surgery for a dog or cat
$5,000 will contribute toward needed repairs at the shelter to enhance the living situations for the animals.
How can you collect pledges?
Setting up a First Giving page is easy! If you need help, here are some directions.
After your page is set up, you can e-mail your friends and family to solicit for donations. They can make them easily and safely on the First Giving site! Better yet, you can share your page on Facebook and ask friends to contribute toward your cause.
You can go to our website here to download a paper-and-pen pledge sheet

After you collect pledges, come to the YCR Trail by the Marge Goodfellow Park in New Freedom, PA at 9 am on September 14th (Rain Date 9/15) and get ready to strut solo or with your four-legged friend at The Mutt Strutt! Walk 1-mile and get great prizes!
