Ferg’s Live and Tito’s Handmade Vodka have been partners with Vets4Pets Charitable Veterinary Clinic on many other fundraising efforts, including the clinic’s monthly Suds on Sunday Charity Dog Wash. Knowing the ongoing financial need of the clinic, in its mission to help the low income community care for their pets, Strut, Wag and Rock, was conceived. 100% of the event proceeds will go directly to provide veterinary care for animals walking through the clinic doors, with owners of limited or no income. The need for the communities help is as great as the need the clinic sees each day they are open.
