Best Friend’s Animal Society has put together an amazing series of events called Strut Your Mutt; a chance for animal lovers to come together and raise money to save the lives of homeless pets. Strutt Your Mutt was built because of the heartbreaking fact that many cats and dogs are killed in shelters because they don’t have a place to call home. It is an annual dog walk for people of all ages and their canine companion to contribute fundraising towards saving all animals.
While being a fundraiser for an amazing cause, Strutt Your Mutt is also a super fun event! During the walk, there will be activities such as dog yoga, music, contests, food trucks and more. And don’t forget all of the adorable pups everyone will bring! There was a huge turnout across the country last year and over $2.6 million was raised in the name of saving homeless pets. This is definitely a great opportunity to benefit both your animal community and have a fun family outing (all while walking the dog!).
This exciting event will be happening in 14 different cities in the months of September and October this year. Participants can register solo or in groups, and for those who love pets but can’t own them, you can still join in without a dog! When you register, just select a participating local animal welfare group and Best Friends will help you raise money to support their efforts, or you can choose to raise money for the animals at Best Friends. Ready to start saving lives? Step up today!
