On Saturday, September 28th, 12 Roscoe employees came together and volunteered to help out at Strut Your Mutt Austin, a nationwide fundraising event to raise money for lifesaving adoption programs and spay/neuter services in colloboration with Best Friends Animal Society.
The event had about 1500 participants plus their furry friends, and raised $98,000 towards the nationwide goal of $2 million. We met dogs of all shapes, sizes, and breeds, all of which are welcome at Roscoe communities!
There are more than 9,000 pets killed in American shelters, and we at Roscoe would love to see that number at zero. Kayla shared that “If only I had a dollar for every person that came up to me that day and said ‘I LOVE ROSCOE’ I would have a very nice sized donation myself!” Others had never heard of Roscoe Properties and were so excited when they heard of our progressive ‘no breed or weight restriction’ policy. We heard stories of how hard it is to find a place for their ‘fur babies’ and how relieved that there is a company welcoming them with open arms.
Participants were eager to take our brochures, along with the Roscoe swag, for themselves, and for their friends and family looking for a new home, many of whom were relocating from out of state! It was great to see so many people with our Roscoe totes and their dogs sporting the green Roscoe bandanas! This event was a huge success in getting the word out about Roscoe and our pet friendliness!
