Animal welfare organizations around the country are working hard to save the lives of homeless pets, and you can help by joining Strut Your Mutt.

All the money raised from the live and virtual events will go directly to helping save dogs and cats in communities throughout the U.S. Last year’s participants from across the country gathered virtually to help pets in need.

Together, they raised more than $1.45 million to help the animals.

Here’s how Strut Your Mutt works

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 and walking at a live Strut Your Mutt event in any of our five event cities, or you can raise funds virtually and celebrate our online Strut Your Mutt Day on Saturday, October 22, from anywhere you call home.

When you register for Strut Your Mutt, you'll choose to register as an individual or start your own team to support the animals of Best Friend, or you can join a participating Best Friends Network Partner team, and any money raised will go directly to that team.

Participating is easy, and we’ll provide you with additional tools and resources to increase your fundraising efforts.
