NEW YORK (CBS 2) — It can take a few days, sometimes months, to find pets a permanent home, and some are adopted by their foster families. There’s a nationwide effort called “Strut Your Mutt” to help raise money for animal rescue organizations. New Yorkers will be strutting their mutts this Sunday to help 19 local groups.

“It’s like the Easter parade, only you don’t have to look jerky in a hat,” said Actor Kevin Conway, who stars in CBS’ “The Good Wife.”
