Dog Lovers — Get Ready to Strut and Celebrate!

2021 Mutt Strut

Due to the heavy rains Ford Field Park has flooded and we have made the difficult decision to make our 16th Annual Mutt Strut presented by Dearborn Family Pet Care a virtual event. We hope you will join us virtually at a safe and dry location of your choice.

While we understand that it is not the same as gathering with other pet lovers for a day out with your dog(s), we hope you will still participate and most importantly fundraise to help the animals at FAMD. We aim to make this a fun event that you can participate in from your home, and to raise the much-needed funds to support the animals and the mission of FAMD. While we truly hoped we could hold this event in person, Mother Nature had other plans.

This event raises much needed funds to support the over 2,400 animals we care for each year. With lingering impacts due to COVID-19 your participation in Mutt Strut is more critical than ever.

We will share more info about the event, different ways you can participate, feature our wonderful sponsors and vendors, hear from staff and much more on our Facebook page!

You can still sign up to participate, either by creating a team or participating as an individual. The registration fee is $35 and includes a 2021 Mutt Strut t-shirt. Once you have registered and created & personalized your fundraising page, we encourage you to share it with friends, family and co-workers to begin collecting donations. There will be prizes for the top fundraising team and individuals!

Proceeds from the event support FAMD and our animals – helping us get every dog and cat at the shelter all the medical care, food, and love they deserve while they wait for their forever homes.
