Strut Your Mutt is a dog walk, 5K run, and dog-themed festival benefiting animal welfare groups and Best Friends Animal Society as they work to save the lives of pets in shelters. Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax-deductible and our organization keeps 100 percent of the money we raise (after transaction fees).
We are always looking for more volunteers to help take care of our cats and dogs. Cat care taking involves scooping litterboxes, feeding cats, giving medications, and takes about 2-3 hours. We like to have our cats taken care of in the morning. Dog care taking involves hosing down dog kennels, feeding, giving medications, and walking. There are 2 shifts - 7am and 5pm. The morning shift is very intense and takes about 6 hours, while the evening shift only takes about 2 hours. YOU MUST BE 18 OR OVER TO WORK WITH THE DOGS. IF YOU ARE BETWEEN 13 AND 17 YOU CAN WORK WITH CATS IF A PARENT OR GUARDIAN WORKS WITH YOU. NO EXCEPTIONS. Contact us for other volunteer opportunities.
