Strut Your Mutt is a fun and easy way to raise money and save the lives of homeless pets in your community and across the country.

You can participate by attending a live Strut Your Mutt event in any hosting city or you can raise funds virtually and celebrate our online Strut Your Mutt Day on Saturday, October 22. Find an event below to learn more and register.

Fundraising ends October 31.

Participate virtually and save lives

Strut Your Mutt Day, on October 22, is a day for online fundraisers and strutters to get out and celebrate!

You can take your dog for a walk in your favorite spot, celebrate by chilling on the couch with your cat or organize a pack walk with other local supporters. It’s up to you.

No matter how you choose to take part in Strut Your Mutt Day on October 22, you’ll be saving the lives of homeless dogs and cats. Just like live events, you can choose to raise funds for the animals of Best Friends or your favorite participating group.
