Join a Network Partner team

The Best Friends Network is a coalition of shelters, rescue groups and other animal welfare organizations in all 50 states. Every year, hundred of these organizations take part in Strut Your Mutt to raise money and save the lives of animals in their care.

While there are plenty of perks to becoming a network partner, participation in Strut Your Mutt may just be one of the biggest benefits. Best Friends provides this platform for organizations to engage their communities, drive donations and raise awareness. Last year, more than 250 network partners participated in Strut Your Mutt, raising more than $1.45 million.

To participate in Strut Your Mutt, your organization must be a network partner. If you're not yet a network partner, you can apply to become one here.
