Be a Volunteer

There’s nothing quite like the sound of hundreds of dogs panting, sniffing and walking together amid a festival atmosphere of food and fun. If this sounds like your dream come true, Best Friends Animal Society can use your help to make this year’s Strut Your Mutt the best ever for homeless pets.

Strut Your Mutt is tons of fun, but it also takes a team of energetic and dedicated people to pull it off. We need volunteers to help with event registration, assist along the walk route or help at booths and attractions. You can also help with a number of other tasks, including setting up on the day before the event, cleanup and all sorts of things that pop up along the way. Learn more about what Strut Your Mutt volunteers do.

Please note: The minimum age to volunteer is 12. Minors ages 12-15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. There are select opportunities available to minors.
