And, finally, let us introduce you to our new Furry Scurry Toolkit! You could plan a party by yourself but think how much better it would be if you had a little help. That’s how you should think of our Furry Scurry Toolkit! We’ve put together resources to make your Furry Scurry experience the best it can be. Looking for a Furry Scurry logo? We’ve got you covered. How about a Facebook picture frame to show your spirit to your social media world? Yup, we’ve got that, too. We’ve even got templates for thank you emails and fundraising requests. We gathered everything (well, we hope) you need to make this year’s Furry Scurry an easy peasy tail-wagging good time! Our Furry Scurry Toolkit includes the most commonly requested resources along with a few things we think will help you along the Furry Scurry journey. Be sure to visit

Oh sure, the Furry Scurry looks a bit different this year, but we’re so thankful for the sense of community you create. And, because the event is virtual, ask friends and family across the county to join in the fun! We can just imagine the adventures you’ll share over a Zoom call!

Just because we won’t be walking together doesn’t mean that we aren’t walking for the same reason—to help end pet homelessness and animal suffering!
