We love Best Friends, and are so excited for Strut Your Mutt 2015!
I’m strutting as part of a local rescue team (you can support my goal here if you want), but you can walk as an individual, start your own team, or join one a team that already exists. You can even strut virtually!
Strut Your Mutt, presented by BOBS from Skechers, is a 12 city fundraising dog walk, 5K run and festival that brings together rescue groups, shelters and individuals to celebrate the collective effort of saving the lives of shelter pets.
The event kicked off the tour last weekend in Minneapolis and Portland, and will be visiting the following cities this month and next:
Austin – September 19
Kanab, UT – September 19
Jacksonville, FL – September 26
NYC – September 26
San Francisco – October 3
DC Metro Area – October 10
Los Angeles – October 10
St. Louis – October 10
Houston – October 17
Salt Lake City – October 24
Since 2010, Best Friends has raised more than $5.2 million for its animal welfare partners through Strut Your Mutt. The national goal for this year is $2.6 million.
