Although these stories were featured in 2016, there’s no reason you can’t use them this year as well! All of these pets have been since been adopted and are thriving in their forever homes.

Featured animals: Cholula and Tapatio

It’s not too late to donate to my Mutt Strut page and help Philly’s homeless pets! These adorable siblings were found fending for themselves on the street, but now they’re safe at PAWS and thriving in a foster home. PAWS saves nearly 3,000 animals every year and is 100% donor-funded. They can’t do what they do without our support! #pawsmuttstrut #phillypaws

Twitter: Meow! Have you donated yet? Chip in to my page and help more kittens like these. #pawsmuttstrut #phillypaws


Featured animal: Lotus


Please donate to my Mutt Strut page to help dogs like Lotus! She’s a 6-month-old puppy who was found on the streets weighing only 18 pounds when she should weigh 30. Luckily she’s safe at PAWS now where she’s getting plenty of food and medical care, and she’ll be available for adoption soon! Here she’s giving a kiss to one of PAWS’ vet staff members who’s helping her heal. Your donation will help make Philadelphia a no-kill city by giving PAWS the resources necessary to save more animals like her! #pawsmuttstrut #phillypaws

Twitter: Donate to my #pawsmuttstrut page and help save pets like Lotus. She didn’t have enough to eat on the streets but now she’s safe at @phillypaws!

Featured animal: Piglet

Your #pawsmuttstrut donations help pups like Piglet! This rescued stray is safe at PAWS and received an intake exam when she arrived. PAWS relies on donations to cover all the vet care the animals need. Please donate to my Mutt Strut page and help more dogs like her!

Twitter: New rescue Piglet gets her intake exam at @phillypaws! Donate to my #pawsmuttstrut page and more pups like her.


Featured animals: Bump, Bunny, Bruno, and Bear

I’m raising funds for kittens like Bump, Bunny, Bruno, and Bear: four siblings who are alive today thanks to PAWS. They were found as strays and taken to Philadelphia’s city shelter, where there wasn’t enough room for all the animals coming in. PAWS saved their lives by taking them to safety at their no-kill shelter. PAWS relies on donations for everything that goes into saving kittens: medicine for common illnesses, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgeries, and much more. Please give to my Mutt Strut page so we can help more animals like them! #pawsmuttstrut #phillypaws

Twitter: Rescued by @phillypaws! Donate to my #pawsmuttstrut page and help kittens like these guys.



Featured animal: Ivy

Please donate! I’m participating in the PAWS Mutt Strut for animals like Ivy. She was rescued by PAWS less than a month ago with a severe skin condition that caused open sores all over her body. It wasn’t certain when she came to the shelter whether she would survive. PAWS gave her all the medicine and care she needed, and now her fur is growing back and she’s feeling like a playful puppy again! She just found a foster home where she’ll continue to heal, and in her place, PAWS will rescue another dog in need.

PAWS is working to make Philadelphia a no-kill city. They are 100% donor-funded, so they need our help to keep rescuing animals like Ivy. Every donation to my #pawsmuttstrut page will help PAWS save lives. Please donate what you can and help me reach my goal!

Please support me and the animals! I’m walking in #pawsmuttstrut to save dogs like Ivy, who was rescued by @phillypaws.
