Join us on

Saturday, September 12

for our 15th annual Mutt Strut Walk as we raise money to save animal lives!

When you do, you’re joining a dedicated community working every day to create a more humane region for companion animals. Your participation strengthens our ability to create extraordinary moments of hope and joy for people and animals, as well as sustain critical initiatives.                                          

Make a statement for those who don’t have a voice!  Register NOW and join us for a fun-filled day that includes a 2.2 mile stroll.  A shorter one-mile walk route will also be available.

Pets who are friendly, vaccinated and would enjoy the event are welcome to join you on a leash or in a carrier.  Please bring proof of vaccination and, of course, be prepared to pick up after your pets! No leashes longer than 6 feet or retractable leashes are allowed, dogs must wear fitted collars or harnesses, and please be prepared to pick up dog waste. A maximum of 2 dogs are allowed per individual for safety of our participants.
