STRUT YOUR MUTT 2019

It’s time to Strut Your Mutt again! Last year NCBR was the top fundraising team in San Francisco and the fourth most successful in the country!  Our team of over 100 teammates raised over $73,000 this year our goal is to raise $45,000.   This would be enough to fund the care of 23 incoming dogs. Can we do it again? Only with your help!

COME STRUT WITH US!

We are very excited to announce that this year we are one of 62 animal welfare groups chosen from 240 applicants to receive a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization to help senior dogs!

Our grant will fund the production of several interactive kiosks that will be placed in veterinary waiting rooms and provide information about our Wizened Wiggle Butts Program!  Our hope is that these kiosks will expand our foster home capacity for senior boxers and help educate pet owners about caring for senior dogs.
“This grant will help us serve more senior dogs Bunny – providing her the veterinary care and behavioral intervention she needs so she’ll be ready to go to her forever home,” says Karen Heald, our Executive Director. “No one is more grateful or loving than an old dog, and we’re looking forward to helping more senior dogs like Bunny get the second chance they all deserve.”

In the past 11 years, the national nonprofit Grey Muzzle Organization has provided almost $2 million in grants to support its vision of “a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.”  “Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we’re delighted to help deserving organizations like NorCal Boxer Rescue make a difference in the lives of dogs and people in their communities,” Grey Muzzle’s Executive Director Lisa Lunghofer says. “Many senior dogs in Northern California are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of NorCal Boxer Rescue.”

Thank you, Grey Muzzle, for helping us continue to save our wonderful Wizened Wiggle Butts!

Grey Muzzle Organization Grant Recipient

NorCal Boxer Rescue is one of 66 animal welfare groups in 30 states chosen from more than 300 applicants to receive a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization to help senior dogs.

“This grant will help us recruit more foster homes for senior dogs like Gordon. He recently entered our care after being abandoned in his home for over two weeks before he was taken in by animal control,” said Karen Heald, executive director of NorCal Boxer Rescue. “No one is more grateful or loving than an old dog, and we’re looking forward to helping more senior dogs get the second chance they all deserve.”

The national nonprofit The Grey Muzzle Organization improves the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries, and other nonprofit groups nationwide.
