Happy Friday! In this special edition of Fetching Friday, we’re highlighting Best Friends Animal Society Strut Your Mutt. It is a 12 city fundraising dog walk, 5K run and festival presented by BOBS from Skechers that brings together rescue groups, shelters and individuals to celebrate the collective effort of saving the lives of shelter pets.
They kicked off the tour last weekend in Minneapolis and Portland, and will be visiting the following cities this month and next:
Austin, TX – September 19
Kanab, UT – September 19
Jacksonville, FL – September 26
New York, NY- September 26
San Francisco, CA – October 3
DC Metro Area – October 10
Los Angeles, CA – October 10
St. Louis, MO – October 10
Houston, TX – October 17
Salt Lake City, UT – 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. Additionally, through a virtual Strut Your Mutt Challenge, supporters can raise money to help homeless pets in their local communities or for national programs that help to create sweeping changes for homeless pets everywhere.
You can view all of the cities, sign-up, start your fundraising page, or donate to an existing team at www.StrutYourMutt.org.
