Help Save the Homeless Animals of Lake County at Mutt Strut

Our 20th Annual Mutt Strut is just 3 weeks away. We are so excited to be celebrating 20 wonderful years of this event. Mutt Strut is our favorite fundraising event because we get to watch all of our supporters jump into action and raise money for the homeless animals in their community. It's truly inspiring to see people of all ages gather together after raising thousands of dollars for the animals in need.

It's not too late to start collecting donations for our shelter. No donation is too small and every dollar raised will go directly to the care of the animals here at LHS. Fundraisers have two options:

Once you've decided how you want to go about raising money, just start asking everyone you know to make a donation. Ask friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, whoever you can! You can ask them via e-mail or social media or face-to-face. The options are endless! To show our appreciation for our dedicated fundraisers, we are offering some awesome prizes. The more you raise, the more prizes you are eligible for. Our top fundraisers will also get additional gifts and will be announced at the event.

We hope you'll start raising money for our homeless animals and join us on August 23rd to celebrate all of your life-saving work! To learn more about Mutt Strut, click here!
