Strut for Strays™


On May 10th, dogs and their guardians will make their way to the Ladd Arboretum for the Community Animal Rescue Effort's Strut for Strays. Hundreds of paws and feet will hit the ground walking (or running) for the 3-mile event. Help us raise money to care for the hundreds of animals that C.A.R.E. finds homes for each year.

Top prize for most money raised by an individual: Giant Escape bicycle ($420 value) from The Pony Shop. Can be exchanged for a bicycle of equal value or $420 can be put towards a higher value bicycle. Other prizes include gift certificates and prizes from local businesses. Winners will be determined based upon pledges received by 5/17/2014.
