I strut for my dog Cairo and my fospice dog, Hercules. Cairo was rescued by the SPCA of Texas from a hoarding case. She was found living with 7 chihuahuas in a very small confined space. I adopted her 3 months later and she is the best dog I could ever ask for. Hercy was adopted out by the SPCA of Texas as a puppy and returned to the shelter 2 months later so emaciated that they thought they would have to euthanize him. But the vet staff wanted to try to make him better and after 6 long months of tests, medications, and trial and error he was finally diagnosed with canine inflammatory bowel disease. Without the care of the SPCA of Texas he never would have made it to his first birthday. And in December 2020 he celebrated his 3rd birthday.
I also "strut" for all of the other dogs I have seen as a volunteer with the SPCA of Texas. The one that sticks with me the most is Hope. We fostered Hope right before Hercules and our dog Hendrex loved her. She was a rescue from a cruelty case. She was found with a cord embedded in her neck, suffering from anemia and infected sores all over her body. She received a blood transfusion from one of my former foster dogs, Hershey, and that began her road to recovery. She was eventually adopted out to a wonderful family.
All of the volunteers and staff have stories just like the ones above. You can help by donating towards by goal to raise $1000 for Strut Your Mutt, Virtual Edition. Please help me help dogs like Cairo, Hercules, and Hope and donate today!
