If you know me or have been following me for sometime, you know that I love all the pups. I love being an Alabama wedding photographer BUT I love being a dog mom, too.
One of the first things we noticed about Birmingham, Alabama was how dog friendly the city was. My husband & I love taking our Cavalier King Charles Cocker Spaniel around with us especially to TrimTab Brewery on Sunday afternoons. I found out about Hand in Paw when searching for upcoming dog events & fell in love with what they are doing in our community.
Hand in Paw’s mission is to improve human health & well-being through Animal-Assisted Therapy. They currently have 150 professionally-trained volunteers that bring comfort and joy to people who need it most. One of their biggest fundraisers of the year is the 5k Mutt Strut; just picture Christmas morning but for dog lovers & that’s how I would describe it.
It was an absolute joy to be a sponsor of the 10th Annifursary of Hand in Paw’s Mutt Strut. Huge round of applause to the staff who worked so hard (even in the rain) to make this event happen.
Proceeds from Mutt Strut benefited Hand in Paw’s Animal-Assisted Therapy programs. I cannot wait for next year, perhaps I should train my pup so he can participate too!
