Strut Your Mutt in Tilles Park
(KPLR) – Gateway Pet Guardian’s fosters and volunteers care for over 100 homeless animals in homes, at the shelter or on the streets of East St. Louis.
Ledy Vankavage, attorney and spokesperson for Gateway Pet Guardians, stopped by to talk about the Strut Your Mutt event.
Vankage brought Charolette along with her. Charolette is one of the adoptees who needs a loving home.
Best Friends Animal Society and Gateway Pet Guardians are joining together for an event called Strutt Your Mutt. All donations raised will be used to help fund adoptions, spay/neuter services, rescue, rehabilitation, and education.
The donations also go to training and medical expenses so that dogs can be placed in foster homes.
In addition to rescue efforts, the group tries to get to the root of the problem; there needs to be a low cost spay and neuter clinic in East St. Louis.
Strut Your Mutt takes place on September 28 at Tilles Park.
This doggie-themed festival includes pet contests, photos, treats for your dogs, fun activities, refreshments and more!
8:30 am to 1:00 pm
