This past weekend the Urban Paw team had the pleasure of spending the day with thousands of dogs and their loving humans at the Best Friends Animal Society Los Angeles Strut Your Mutt!
More than $400,000 was raised for LA-area rescue groups, shelters and NKLA Coalition partners thanks to the 2,300 animal lovers and their 1,900 dogs.
Although we have attended many pet events this year, Strut Your Mutt was by far the biggest and most inspiring. Our team met pet lovers of all kinds, some who just recently adopted a pet. It was amazing to see so many people in the community come together to support such a terrific cause.
With the help of Best Friends Animal Society No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA), since 2012 the number of pets being killed in L.A. city shelters has decreased by 56%. This movement, fueled by hundreds of Coalition partners, is helping our city become so much closer to reaching the goal of No-Kill.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support this movement! And for those of you who purchased a bed or won a bed in the raffle, don't forget to share photos of your pets enjoying their bed with us @urbanpawpet on Twitter and Instagram and Urban Paw on Facebook.
