A step in the right direction: Strut Your Mutt in the D.C. Metro area

We’re excited about this year’s Strut Your Mutt in the D.C. area! Please join Best Friends Animal Society, and our partner rescue groups, shelters and animal welfare organizations as we strut to save the lives of homeless cats and dogs.

You can register to fundraise as an individual or choose to be part of a team. This year’s event takes place at Wheaton Regional Park in Silver Spring, Maryland on October 6. On that day, you’re invited to participate in a leisurely walk (dog not required) with  animal lovers like yourself. This family friendly festival also includes food trucks, vendors and lots of fun activities.

We had a great turnout and tons of fun last year. In fact, more than 500 strutters raised over $200,00 for lifesaving programs, such as spay and neuter services, adoption events and more.
