Marina del Rey's Forte Animal Rescue will once again be participating in the Strut Your Mutt fundraising event, to be held at 10 a.m. on Sept. 22 Strut Your Mutt is located at Pan Pacific Park, 7600 Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles (near The Grove). This annual event brought 1,500 people and 2,000 dogs together last year!
Participants can help animals in various ways, including registering at this link www.FARescue.org/Strut, clicking on “Join This Dog Pack,” and asking friends, family, coworkers, neighbors for support. For those who can’t attend this event in person, they can register as a virtual participant, form a pack and raise funds. Supporters can also simply donate to Forte’s pack by supporting its Pack Leader. Every penny the pack leader raises will go straight to Forte Animal Rescue.
“Strut Your Mutt” is a leisurely 1-mile group dog walk followed by a festival in a beautiful park, hosted by Best Friends Animal Society. The festival includes doggie yoga and massage, photo ops, free consultations with trainers and pet specialists, complimentary treats for your dogs, fun activities and contests, refreshments and more!
Funds raised will help Forte Animal Rescue continue its lifesaving programs to rescue animals from the pounds and streets, and place them at new homes where they are safe and loved for the rest of their lives. More than five million precious lives are put to death in pounds every year. Supporting Forte Animal Rescue is one way you can help to change this tragic reality.
Forte Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer organization that exists entirely on donations, and 100% of donations go directly to animal care. Forte rescues all breeds and mixes, from poodles to pit bulls. To date, Forte has saved the lives of more than 950 dogs. Forte Animal Rescue can be found online at http://www.facebook.com/forteanimalrescue and www.FARescue.org/Strut.
In addition to ongoing boarding and other expenses, Forte Animal Rescue continually incurs significant veterinary medical bills, hence any support would be greatly appreciated. Donations can be made online or via regular mail at PO Box 10085, Marina del Rey, CA 90295. Forte Animal Rescue is also looking for foster homes for its rescued dogs, along with volunteers to help its adoption events.
