Do you think saving senior pets is groovy? So do we! That's why you should join our Mutt Mosey fundraiser walk! This righteous one-mile Mosey around the Fox River Preserve and Marina raises the much needed funds to save the lives of senior dogs and cats in area shelters.

 

Last year, $34,000 was raised at the Mutt Mosey. Why do we raise funds to save senior pets? Because in a perfect world, every senior pet would spend its twilight years surrounded by a loving family. But sadly, senior pets that end up in shelters often do not get that chance. Young At Heart™ is a rescue and safe haven for senior dogs & cats in Northern Illinois. Our mission is to save the lives of homeless senior dogs and cats from shelters where their age puts them first in line to be euthanized. We find loving homes for adoptable senior pets and offer a peaceful permanent sanctuary life for those that are less adoptable. With your support, Young at Heart™ gives older dogs and cats another chance to enjoy the twilight of their lives through rescue, foster, adoption and sanctuary. Your support of this year's Mutt Mosey not only helps us give homeless senior pets a second chance, it will also help us build a cageless safe haven to help us save more lives!

 

Register for the Mutt Mosey and you get an official Feelin' Groovy 2016 Mutt Mosey Shirt, a righteous Feelin' Groovy 2016 Mutt Mosey sticker, PLUS Top Fundraiser prizes, Best Dressed prizes, and a post-Mosey BBQ complete with vegan options. We'll be crowning the 1st Place Individual Fundraiser's Dog the King or Queen of the Mutt Mosey! There's a 50/50 raffle, a bucket raffle, scrumptious Bake Sale, and more, all set to the fab tunes of the 1960s.

 

Prizes awarded for Top 3 Individual Fundraisers, Top 3 Team Fundraisers, and Top Business Team!
