Step up. Step out. Save lives.
Since the first Strut Your Mutt in Salt Lake City in 1995, the fundraising events landscape has dramatically shifted, and new technology has given people new ways to connect to each other and to the causes they support.
For that reason, this year Strut Your Mutt will return to how it started: with just one event in Salt Lake City. Likewise, the ResQWalk mobile app will end on September 30. That shift will allow Best Friends to support our network partners by providing more flexible, innovative fundraising opportunities that will create more consistent revenue, maximize lifesaving, and help make the entire country no-kill by 2025.
Thank you so much to all the participants, volunteers, and organizations who have taken part in Strut Your Mutt over the years. You've made a huge difference for homeless pets, and for that we're so grateful.
