Adoptathon – Find your purr-fect match

 Adopt-a-thon

106.5 The Wolf and Wayside Waifs are proud to present the 2013 Summer Adoptathon on July 12-14. The event will feature live broadcasts all day Friday featuring some of Kansas City’s most listened to DJs – Roger Carson, Codie Allen, Wes Poe, and Shotgun Jaxson. This weekend only, all pet adoptions are just $25. Plus, fees will be waived on all additional pets adopted. All adoptable animals are spay/neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. It’s the “purr”fect time to find your furry friend.

TheWolfWayside Waifs will be open special hours for this weekend’s adoptathon:

  • Friday, July 12: 6 a.m.-8 p.m.
  • Saturday, July 13: 8 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Sunday, July 14: 12 p.m.-6 p.m.

Check out some of the grrreat dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and bunnies looking forward to meeting you.

The Adoptathon is just one of Wayside Waifs’ anchor adoption events this summer to help the shelter compete in the 2013 ASPCA/Rachael Ray $100K Adoption Challenge. Our goal is to help 1,831 animals in our community find loving forever homes by the end of August.

 The adoption fun begins this Friday at 6am! We hope to see a lot of The Wolf Pack fans participating.

Strutt To Save Lives

Strutt With Us!

Strutt With Us!

It’s time to register for the 20th Annual Strutt With Your Mutt for Wayside Waifs.  In honor of the events 20th Anniversary, we are making some big changes to take Strutt to the next level. 

One of the most important changes is the addition of Dog Packs.  Dog Packs are teams of people that register and Strutt together.  It’s an awesome way to get your family, friends, neighbors, clients or co-workers involved in this great event.  You can show your team spirit by coming up with a clever team name, creating team shirts, wearing wacky hats or dressing your dogs in team bandanas. 

This year our goal is to raise a record $75,000 at Strutt With Your Mutt, but we can’t do it alone.  There is tremendous power in numbers, and by forming or joining a Dog Pack you can help Wayside Waifs continue our lifesaving mission.  If every member of your Dog Pack raised just $100, think of the difference we could make!  We know times are tough, but every $5 or $10 donation quickly adds up!

Every Dog Pack has an opportunity to win some great prizes for their fundraising efforts.  The winning team will also win a picnic in the Wayside Bark Park!  How cool is that?!? 

There will be something for everyone at Strutt With Your Mutt, including a 5K Fun Run, Kids Run, Cat Walk and 3K Strutt (a leisurely dog walk through Brookside).  There will also be a delicious pancake breakfast with Chris Cakes, and you can shop ‘til you drop in Vendor Village! 

Remember, every dollar raised at Strutt directly helps homeless animals.  Wayside Waifs receives no government funding and relies on people just like you to continue to help the animals.  Wayside is proud to be Kansas City’s largest no-kill animal shelter.  We thank you for helping the animals and we can’t wait to see you and your Dog Pack at Strutt With Your Mutt on September 25th in Brookside.  

The 20th Annual Strutt With Your Mutt is presented by Bayer Animal Health.  For more information and to create your dog pack, please visit www.waysidewaifs.org/strutt
