Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt event is about saving lives. In fact, your dog might agree that this fundraising, pooch-walking, fun-having extravaganza is the best thing since the invention of the chew toy.  It’s an annual series of charity walks that brings together four- and two-legged participants of all ages to raise money toward saving the lives of homeless pets in your neighborhood and all around the country. 

And it’s so much more than a charity walk! Strut Your Mutt is a festival of fun, including smile-inducing activities like doggie yoga, pet portraits, refreshments, music, contests and more. Most of all, this energizing event is about getting our wiggle on with our favorite four-legged friends!
