The Herkimer County Humane Society is holding an exciting virtual contest in lieu of its annual Mutt Strutt.


How does it work? Click on the link below to post a picture of your pet and then encourage family and friends to donate $1 per vote (no limit on voting). The Staffworks Fund will then match every donation dollar for dollar!


The top two pets with the most votes will be displayed on LED billboards for the entire community to see during the month of August.


Photos must be submitted by Saturday, July 18 to be included in the contest and the voting ends Friday, July 31.


The Staffworks Fund has $12.4 million under management at The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties. The Fund has given more than $2.3 million to non-profit organizations throughout our regional community that provide direct care and services for animals that have been abandoned, abused or have other needs.
