Why We Strut

Because we love animals, of course! And because we want to save their lives. Every day in America’s shelters, nearly 5,500 dogs and cats are killed, simply because they don’t have safe places to call home. But if we work together, we can reduce that number to zero. Strut Your Mutt brings together thousands of passionate people from all across the country to raise money to save the lives of homeless pets. Participants can choose to raise money for Best Friends or for one of hundreds of participating shelters, rescue groups and other animal welfare groups. No matter who you choose to support, the organization you raise funds for gets to keep every dollar you raise. When we strut together, we can Save Them All.
