Mutt Mosey - A Groovy Fundraiser Walk

  • Fox River Preserve & Marina 28500 West Roberts Road Barrington, IL, 60010 United States (map)

The Chicago School of Canine Massage will be attending this groovy fundraiser! We will be providing complimentary 10-15 minute canine massages to all attendees. Come out and support a great organization that is trying to raise funds to save lives of senior dogs and cats in area shelters.

You think saving senior pets is groovy? So do we! That's why you should join our Mutt Mosey fundraiser walk, set to the theme of the 1960's! 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. Your social, friendly dog is welcome to walk with you and does not need to be a senior or a Young at Heart alumni! 

Last year, $34,000 was raised at the Mutt Mosey, and this year we want to blow that away. Why? Because 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!

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. 

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! And the prizes are AWESOME!

When you donate to the Mutt Mosey, you may be eligible to receive a token of appreciation! All are 100% sponsored, so no money is taken away from the animals to provide you with these incentives! How groovy is that?
