Thank you for visiting my Strutt personal fundraising page and supporting me in my race to reach my goal!
I am participating in the 2021 Strutt With Your Mutt this October 3. Strutt With Your Mutt is an annual fundraiser for Wayside Waifs, Kansas City's largest and most comprehensive no-kill animal adoption campus. Wayside cares for more than 6,000 abandoned, abused and homeless animals every year. It's mission is to prepare people and pets for the bond of their lives.
Wayside is an animal welfare organization that provides animal adoptions, animal resuces, foster care programs, humane education programs.
I visited Wayside one afternoon to check out the dogs as I was looking to find a four legged friend. I walked up and down and was stopped dead in my tracks and just had to sit down with him for a while. He came over towards me and just sat there as we enjoyed each other's presence. I asked if I could meet him and they set me up in one of the meet and greet rooms and had me sit down before they let him come in. As soon as he entered the room he came over to me and put his paws in my lap and clinged on. I just knew he and I were going to end up becoming great friends.
Since I had came late in the afternoon there was not enough time for me to start the adoption process, so I called and took the next day off work to come back. I said goodnight and drove home for the evening, the next day I couldn't wait. I drove up an hour before the shelter opened for visitors because I was so excited. We filled out all the paperwork and they brought Mavrick up the the front, he instantly came over to me and wanted to be as close to me as he could. The adoption coordinator was just so impressed how quickly we seemed to get along. We buttoned everything up, got our picture together for the first time, and hopped up into the Jeep. He was so happy and smiling as we drove home the long way with the top down, the ultimate windows down ride.
Funds raised from Strutt With Your Mutt supports Wayside's life saving mission by providing care for homeless animals year round.
