BOBS UNITES AUSTIN FOR HURRICANE ANIMALS

Through BOBS for Dogs, we’ve loved taking part in our national movement to save millions of shelter animals’ lives – and there was no greater opportunity for that than at our Strut Your Mutt event in Austin this fall! The recent hurricanes have tragically displaced hundreds of pets, creating an influx of homeless animals and a new sense of urgency to find homes for them as quickly as possible.

 

And Strut Your Mutt rose to the occasion… announcing a special “two-in-one” event with Super Adoption. In addition to raising funds for local shelters and animal rescue groups, Skechers also donated $10,000 to cover adoption fees for the first 100 animals adopted at the event – and it was a huge success!

Strut Your Mutt is a huge event every year in cities across the country – there are BOBS prizes, treats and toys for the dogs and even special offers on our adorable BOBS for Dogs shoes. We just had a hugely successful Strut Your Mutt event in Los Angeles this past weekend (we raised more than $400,000 in that city alone!) and our national Strut Your Mutt Day will be held in communities everywhere this Saturday, October 28. If you’ve got a dog or are just a pooch lover, head outside and walk with us! You can get more info on this Saturday’s national event here.


Hats off to the Austin Animal Center, Austin Pets Alive, Houston Pets Alive, San Antonio Pet Alive and PAW Shelter of central Texas, amazing organizations that go the extra mile to save animals’ lives – not just in the hurricane’s aftermath, but every day at their shelters. And HUGE thanks to all of you who keep the BOBS for Dogs spirit alive and support our movement to make shelter deaths a thing of the past – through all of your purchases, posts and endless support.
