Join Salt Lake County Animal Services’ Strut Your Mutt Team! We're raising funds to save the lives of homeless pets through a community celebration of our favorite furballs.
Strut Your Mutt Day is a fundraising event coordinated by Best Friends Animal Society that saves the lives of dogs and cats in communities across the country. This year, it will take place on Saturday, October 15th at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City.
This year’s donations will be used to improve the dog kennels at the shelter. We seek to provide each animal with an enhanced feeling of safety and protection in their kennel while at the same time creating an environment that feels welcoming for people looking to adopt a canine companion. This is the launch of a long-term capital campaign for JUST the dog kennels that will span several years and cost approximately $500,000. This does not include plumbing, HVAC, flooring, etc.
Salt Lake County Animal Services is the largest NO KILL municipal shelter in Utah. We have had a commitment to operating a "no-kill" facility since 2011. In 2021 Salt Lake County Animal Services provided care for over 14,000 animals. We cared for cats, dogs, rabbits, horses, chickens, goats, pigs, reptiles, birds and small mammals.
Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money is used to improve the lives of homeless pets.
Thank you for your support!
