— animals who have had hard lives — and places them in loving homes with people who really want them.”
Education is a big component of the event. There’s information about what the Humane Society does and how the shelter works. “If someone adopts through the Humane Society’s shelter, they essentially sign a contract saying they’ll care for the animals properly,” John says. The Humane Society has a number of measures in place and does their due diligence to ensure each adopted pet is placed in a home that will be the perfect environment for them. There were many sweet pets at Strut Your Mutt, including those still looking for their forever homes. Each year, the Humane Society brings adoptable dogs to Strut Your Mutt and a number of them get adopted by people who will provide them the love and care they deserve. For John, the experience is about community and overcoming differences with a shared mission. “To me, the coolest thing about it is that you have people who love their animals and you get to see dogs of all shapes and sizes and ages,” John says. “It’s amazing how it brings people together and bridges the divides we sometimes feel.” From all of us at Rinehardt Law Firm, we appreciate the dedication and kindness of the Humane Society, and we hope next year’s Strut Your Mutt is just as successful as this year’s.
Canine-Friendly Pumpkin Truffles
Inspired by DalmatianDIY.blogspot.com
It’s the season of costumes and candy! While there are plenty of canine costumes to choose from, dogs should stay well away from the trick-or-treat bucket. Fortunately, you can still treat your dogs to a Happy Howl -oween with these tasty and dog-friendly truffles.
OTLIGHT a mystery to Remi. Sometimes he gets to be there for trial prep, listening attentively from under the conference table. Other times, he has to stay upstairs and can’t greet all the other humans who visit. He just wants to love on them! That said, he’s learning that sometimes, he wants to provide love before people are ready for it. That’s okay — he’ll wait. When it comes to food, Remi has refined taste. His favorite is toast, but it can’t just be any subpar loaf. He prefers high-quality sourdough. If that’s not available, he’ll settle for anything he can get his paws on. Above all, Remi is just a fun-loving, love-giving dog who’s eager to give humans as much love as they can handle. Just don’t tell Remi that the FedEx truck is here. That thing is suspicious! He knows they’re up to no good.
