Stepping up for homeless pets: Strut Your Mutt in Jacksonville
Love animals? Interested in saving lives? Join Best Friends Animal Society and our partner rescue groups, shelters and animal welfare organizations for Strut Your Mutt in Jacksonville!
You can register to walk individually or join a team to fundraise for homeless dogs and cats in your community. Then on September 29 join fellow animal lovers to strut at Riverside Park. The event starts with a celebratory walk (dog not required) and includes a family friendly festival with food trucks, vendors and lots of fun activities.
Best Friends, along with our partner organizations are dedicated to helping raise funds for pets in the Jacksonville area. Last year, over 1,000 people raised more than $60,000 for lifesaving programs, such as spay and neuter services, adoption events and more.
