2018 will be the 9th straight year that OPIN (Outreach to Pets In Need) has participated in the Strut Your Mutt event. And each year, we have a blast!

Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of homeless pets like Chloe so they don't have to enter the shelter system to begin with.

 Chloe can see again thanks to your support!

Chloe can see again thanks to your support!

Chloe, a senior yorkie/shihtzu mix, was blind and found wandering in Bermuda. A kind OPIN volunteer brought her home to Connecticut, and she joined the OPIN family. OPIN provided the eye surgery Chloe needed to restore her sight and today she is in a loving foster home searching for a permanent home where she can live out her senior years. Chloe's foster mom says she is as sweet as could be. We can't imagine the life she would have had if she'd not been found that day.

Wednesday Nights: FREE Dog Training!

Love your dog but feeling the stress because he/she is not trained?

Two nonprofits, OPIN & the Bartlett Arboretum, join together as a community, offering:  FREE Dog Training with Trainer Rob Mullin of K9Wizard & Co. 

OPIN is pleased to announce this partnership with the Bartlett Arboretum; without their help we couldn't offer this service year round. Classes are open to everyone and are held every Wednesday night (6:30-7:30 pm) at the Bartlett Arboretum located at 151 Brookdale Road in North Stamford (map) (Silver Education Building-lower back entrance in cold and in inclement weather and outdoors on the Great Lawn in nice weather). Your dog will learn the basics: to walk nicely on a leash, to sit, stay, down, and to interact positively in the presence of other dogs.

Your dog should be outfitted with a 6’ standard lead (no retractable leads) and a choke collar.  Please bring a copy of your dog’s rabies and license certificate (not the metal tags) to the first class. 

Donations are always welcomed. 

Please sign up for our newsletter on our website or "like" us on our Facebook page to be notified of changes/cancellations to classes.

2017 will be the 8th straight year that OPIN (Outreach to Pets In Need) has participated in the Strut Your Mutt event. And each year, we have a blast!

This year we are walking in honor of Bella, one of the first pets we saved this year.  After her visit to the vet, it was discovered that Bella had large bladder and anal tumors that needed immediate care.

 Bella is an 8-year old poodle that we took in.

Bella is just one of the stories we have this year. All year long, we are helping pets like Bella start a new life, or helping community pets stay in their homes or avoid euthanasia by offering financial assistance to owners who find themselves in a financial crisis but need emergency or other care for their furry family member. Or, maybe it's the pet owned by a victim of domestic violence. OPIN is there 24/7 to step in and offer a safe haven.

Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Even if you're not planning to walk with us the day of the event, you can still register and help us fundraise or just pass along our link to family and friends.

Your donation is tax deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100 percent of the money that’s raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of homeless pets.
