One of the things we miss not doing during the pandemic is Furry Fridays. We work with some great local shelters that really take wonderful care of dogs and other animals and work to find them their forever home. One of those shelters, Last Hope Animal Rescue in Cedar Rapids, is having a fundraising event in August, and it centers around the game of golf!

It's call the Mutt Putt Challenge and it is scheduled for Saturday, August 15th from 11 a.m to 3 p.m. Teams will race through 18 'holes' of golf at area businesses in Cedar Rapids. They'll be fun challenges and games along the way too! At the end of your round, turn in your teams scorecard and you could win some great prizes! You can play either in a team of four people for $100, or you can golf by yourself for $25. ALL of the proceeds raised will go to Last Hope Animal Shelter.

There are so many expenses when it comes to taking care and sheltering animals. There are basic things like food, water, and grooming supplies. But some animals that come to the shelter need medical treatment too. Surgery on a dog isn't cheap or covered by your insurance. Shelters like Last Hope pay for those procedures to get that dog healthy and to a home.

If you'd like to take part in this year's Mutt Putt Challenge, you can order tickets HERE for yourself or your foursome. Thanks for having some fun and supporting Last Hope too! FORE!
