Alyssa Milano took to Twitter today to support Best Friends Animal Society (BFAS) and their efforts to save the lives of pets across the country.
Her tweet read, “9,000 animals are killed in shelters daily. Join @bfas and animal lovers nationwide to #SaveThemAll.”
The “Mistresses” actress has long been a supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and animal rescue organizations.
Registration is now open for the BFAS’ Strut Your Mutt nationwide event. Last year, close to 11,000 people (including animal lover Ian Somerhalder) came out to participate in the walks. Nearly $1.3 million dollars was raised, benefiting 180 animal welfare groups who help to save animals from kill-shelters across the country.
The fundraising goal for this year’s Strut Your Mutt is $2 million.
Eleven cities are hosting Strut Your Mutt walks:
- Austin, TX
- Baltimore/Washington DC
