Create a Pack!

We challenge you to create a Pack and fundraise for the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast at this year's Mutt March and help us save more lives than ever before! For those who might be wondering, a "Pack" is a fundraising team comprised of two (2) or more individuals who pledge to raise a minimum of $100 for the HSTC. Packs compete against each other to raise the most funds for animals in our care while earning bragging rights for their teams. Create a pack HERE.
