Dog Lovers — Get Ready to Strut, Fundraise and Celebrate!

2022 Mutt Strut

We are excited to announce that this year the Mutt Strut is back in person, and at a new location! Our 17th annual Mutt Strut presented by Linda Gee and Alex Cattelan will be held at the MaryAnn Wright Animal Adoption & Education center and its surrounding campus, including the Dearborn Dog Park! Tour our new adoption center, visit vendors in our parking lots, participate in the lure course at the dog park, and strut along the paved path through the Dearborn community center!

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.

You can sign up to participate, and registration is now open! The registration fee is $35 and includes a 2022 Mutt Strut t-shirt. Once you have registered, 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 fundraisers!

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.
