Hugs for Pets

Hugs for Pets is a community service initiative by The Strutting Pooch that works to help animals in need. Hugs for Pets involves three central components:

1. The Strutting Pooch sends its team members to area rescues, shelters, etc. to assist with tasks such as dog walking, socializing pets, and other areas of need. Know a rescue that needs our help? Let us know!
2. Financial contributions are made to animal-related causes such as the ASPCA. Funds are raised through a multitude of ways including our Custom Pet Pillows of which a portion of proceeds go to Hugs for Pets causes.
3. The Magic Trunk Show, a family entertainment experience, puts on select events with proceeds going to Hugs for Pets causes.

Every pet deserves a hug, help us give them one!

Featured Cause


The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. The ASPCA was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law. The ASPCA’s mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh in 1866, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.”
