Dear Editor:

It was a remarkable Mutt Strut of 2013 on Saturday, June 1.

Thanks everybody for coming out and supporting the work that Critteraid does to help those animals that seem to fall between the cracks.

It is always amazing to see how much fun the dogs have strutting their stuff along Main Street in Summerland while the onlookers cheer and applaud.

This is a day when the dogs know they are special and it pulls at the old heart strings when a dog realizes that the people are thrilled to see them.

Our pledgers, our donors, our strutters — all so appreciated and valued more than words can express.  We raised just over $5,000. It is that support that enables our volunteers to do the work they do to ensure the animals in our care receive veterinary care, proper nutrition and a life free of anxiety.

Well done everybody.
