Step up. Step out. Save lives.

We strutted to save lives on October 21 in Salt Lake City at Strut Your Mutt, an animal fundraising walk and festival to help homeless pets. 

Participants in this year's Strut Your Mutt raised funds for the animals of Best Friends or their favorite local participating animal welfare organization.

Why do we strut? 

We strut to raise money to save the lives of the dogs and cats who need it most. 

Every day, more than 1,000 dogs and cats are killed in shelters simply because they don’t have safe places to call home. We are determined to reduce that number and create a no-kill country in 2025

Strut Your Mutt participants choose to raise funds for Best Friends or their favorite participating animal welfare organization. Every dollar raised goes directly toward helping homeless pets.
