Sign Up for Our Strut Your Mutt Team

Your Donation is Appreciated

The Shelter will participate in this year’s Strut Your Mutt event, sponsored by the national charity, Best Friends Animal Society. We will raise funds to help keep our guest pets happy, healthy, clean, safe and comfortable while they wait for their forever homes! And we plan on having a lot of fun doing it!

Please join us either by registering for our team of walkers or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and SGVHS will receive 100 percent (less Best Friends transaction fees) of the money raised by our team members. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of homeless pets. Together, we can save them all. The walk will take place October 20 at Exposition Park.

To donate or join SGVHS’s walking team go to our Strut Your Mutt Team site.
