We're walking for rescues.
We're walking 1.25 miles through downtown Oakland Park to raise awareness and funds for abandoned animals. Not only do we raise funds for animals but part of it helps our local kids too.
Every year thousands of animals die in our county shelters.
South Florida has an overpopulation of stray dogs and cats. Our county shelters are overloaded. Local no-kill rescue groups are under-staffed and lacking necessary funds to treat and care for all of the animals they rescue.
The Rotary Club of Oakland Park/Wilton Manors has a dream to end the overpopulation of stray cats and dogs by supporting these non-profit, no-kill rescue shelters and adoption centers that provide affordable, spay and neuter services and education to our community about responsible pet ownership.
To do our part, we created “Doggy Fun Fest” and the "Struttin' for Strays" walk.
We're raising funds for local rescue groups to help them care for the unwanted, injured, abandoned dogs and cats and get them into new loving homes.
With our walk we wish to raise awareness of the problem, educate the public and find more foster homes and forever families for these deserving pets.
You can join us!
We want to raise $10,000 this year. The money goes to local rescues we have partnered with and also to our foundation which provides scholarships for local kids, dictionaries to third graders, hydroponic gardens in schools and much more. Please help us raise money by walking or contributing to one of our walkers.
Anything will make a difference.
