Strut Your Mutt

No matter where you are in the country, your organization and the pets in your care have so much to gain from participating in Strut Your Mutt! What is Strut Your Mutt? It’s the walk and fundraising event that saves the lives of pets in communities across the country. 

The 2020 Strut Your Mutt event was completely virtual and closed with 276 network partner teams and over $1.5 million raised to save the lives of pets across the country! 

A special shoutout to the top three fundraising network partner teams for 2020:

Second Place: Shadow Cats with over $87,000 raised 
Third Place: Muddy Paws Rescue NYC with over $70,000 raised 

Interested in participating next year? 
Participation is simple for network partners. Once your application is approved, you’ll be able to set up a fundraising page for your organization on our free peer-to-peer fundraising platform. And every registration and donation* to your team goes entirely back to your organization to use as you see fit for the animals in your care. No matter what type of organization you are — municipal shelter, spay/neuter or foster organization or even a cat group — you can get on in on the fundraising and lifesaving.  

Check out what this network partner had to say about their experience: 

"Strut Your Mutt is an incredible opportunity for network partners of Best Friends to fundraise at a level that would otherwise be incredibly challenging, if not impossible. We could not continue the work we do without Strut Your Mutt as our big annual fundraiser." – Muddy Paws Rescue
