A walk on the pier to save lives: Strut Your Mutt in New York City
Hello, New York! Are you ready for this year’s Strut Your Mutt? Please join Best Friends Animal Society, and our partner rescue groups, shelters and animal welfare organizations in New York City, as we strut to save the lives of homeless cats and dogs.
You can register to fundraise and walk individually or join a team. Then on October 6, we invite you to join fellow animal lovers to at Pier 84 in Hudson River Park. The event starts with a celebratory walk (dog not required) and includes a family friendly festival with food trucks, vendors and tons of fun activities.
Last year was a huge success, thanks to people like you. Almost 2,500 walkers raised over $500,000 for lifesaving programs, such as spay and neuter services, adoption events and more. Join us this year and let’s make this year’s event even better!
