Mutt Mosey Matching Gift Challenge!


We have some AMAZING news! Our Angel Donor and wonderful friend to our senior pets, Claudia Harty, had originally offered to match the first $5000 raised for our Mutt Mosey fundraising walk, which was incredible. To help us celebrate 13 years of saving senior pets, she is increasing her match! CLAUDIA WILL NOW MATCH THE FIRST $13,000 RAISED for this year's Mutt Mosey!!! This is PAWSOME!! We are so over the moon with excitement and gratitude! 

Claudia knows first hand just how much Young at Heart puts into rescuing senior pets in need. She currently has four adopted Young at Heart senior dogs in her family, and is also a foster home for one of our senior cats. She's been a sanctuary mom twice for Young at Heart as well, which is why giving back to Young at Heart by matching your donations means so much to her. 

Claudia said, "Isn’t it amazing how much these senior pets mean to us? To help other senior pets to be able to enjoy what time they have left...I believe I am the lucky one to enjoy the impact of the happiness that results from this gift." And what an incredible impact this matching gift will make for the senior cats and dogs that need us! Thank you, Claudia, for your big heart and your incredible generosity!

Help us celebrate 13 years of saving senior pets by getting ready to save even more! Donate now and Claudia will MATCH your donation dollar for dollar until we raise the first $13,000! That adds up to a lot of second chances for senior dogs and cats!

Here's how you can help us meet this challenge!

1. REGISTER TO WALK either in-person or virtually from wherever you are at this year's Mutt Mosey on May 20th, 2018 in Port Barrington, IL! You can then ask friends and family to sponsor you with a donation to your free fundraising page and their DONATIONS WILL BE MATCHED!

2. DONATE ONLINE to the Mutt Mosey event itself, and your DONATION WILL BE MATCHED!

Thanks to Claudia's generous offer, $10 now equals $20, $25 now equals $50, $100 equals $200, and so on until we raise the first $13,000! 

Let's rock this challenge for our generous friend, Claudia, and for all the homeless senior pets out there that just need a second chance! The more funds we raise at this year's Mutt Mosey, the more senior pets we can save!
