Mutt Strut - Just ONE Month Away!

Our 19th Annual Mutt Strut is just one month away which still gives you plenty of time to raise money for the animals in need here at Lake Humane Society. Our goal for this year is to raise $25,000 for the injured, abused and abandoned animals in our care. As many of you know, we do not receive any government funding, nor are we operated or funded by any national humane organizations. We rely solely on contributions from individuals and local businesses that care about animals and our service to the community.

Each year, we count on a wonderful group of shelter ambassadors to go out into the community and raise money for our animals. We hope that you will consider participating this year in order to make a difference in the lives of so many homeless animals!

Fundraisers have a couple different methods to choose from in order to raise money:

  • Raise money online using FirstGiving! This makes it easy so that fundraisers can have everything in one place and they are able to reach more people by using e-mail and social media to share their page. Fundraisers using FirstGiving can still collect off-line donations and track them on their page as well! Starting a personalized fundraiser page is very simple and only takes 10-15 minutes. To get started now, click here!
  • Raise money in person using a Pledge Form! You can take your pledge form with you door to door or ask anyone you know for a donation. Collect all of your contributions and track them on your pledge form. You then have the choice to pre-register and turn in your donations ahead of time, or you can bring everything with you on the day of the event. To get started, click here to print your pledge form!
The registration fee for fundraisers who raise $25 or more in pledges is waived!
