Dog Days of Summer Strut Your Mutt Parade

The Madonio Family Animal Welfare Trust (MFAWT) was established in 2013 with the single goal of promoting animal causes in our communities. An endowed fund of the Portage Foundation, this non-profit organization has grown by leaps and bounds, particularly after the introduction of the annual Dog Days of Summer fundraising festival which began in 2015. The MFAWT proceeds support many local animal groups, including the Portage APL (including their low-income community cat spay and neuter program), Rose’s Rescue and Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary. Through the Family & Community Services Paws in Motion program MFAWT provides 1,800 lbs of dry food and 1,500 cans per year to pets of folks who receive Meals in Motion. In conjunction with local veterinarians they also support the care of less fortunate pets who require emergency services.
