Strut Your Mutt is Best Friends’ annual dog walk and festival — and fun run, new for 2014 — that raises awareness about pets in shelters nationwide and provides a fundraising opportunity for local animal welfare groups. In 2013, Nearly $1.7 million dollars was raised to benefit dogs and cats around the country!

Join us for Strut Your Mutt 2014. Fundraise for animals by running or walking for a No More Homeless Pets Network partnerin your community or register to support Best Friends at one of 12 event locations nationwide. Then enjoy a fun-filled day with your canine companion at our festival.

Don’t live near a Strut Your Mutt host city or can’t make it to the event? You can still participate! Take the Virtual Strut Your Mutt Challenge and help animals by joining a Network Partner team that’s raising funds online. Joining a team is just $20 and all the set-up is done for you. Or, simply make a donation to the Strut Challenge.
