Join us for Strut Your Mutt Day!

Are you interested in saving the lives of homeless pets, but don’t live in a city that hosts a live Strut Your Mutt event? Don’t worry, you can still participate! Strut Your Mutt Day, on October 26, is an online fundraiser that allows you to raise funds for Best Friends Animal Society or a participating local animal welfare group in your area. Just select the rescue group or animal welfare organization you’d like to support when you register and get strutting.

This year, there are three different ways to participate on Strut Your Mutt Day:

  • Register and start fundraising to save lives.
  • Donate to Best Friends or a participating local welfare group in your area.
  • Walk with the ResQwalk app. What’s ResQwalk? We’re glad you asked. ResQwalk is a fun, easy-to-use app that keeps track of how far you’ve walked and lets you raise money to help animals at the same time. You can download it here. First, create a profile. Then choose the animal welfare organization you want to support. On October 26, open the app and click “START WALK” when you start strutting. You decide the time, place and distance you want to walk. We’ve set aside a special pool of funds for organizations that have strutters walk on their behalf that day. The more people who walk for your group, the more your group benefits.
  • We’re excited to help save the lives of homeless pets all over the country. All funds raised go directly to lifesaving programs, such as spay and neuter services, adoption events and more.
