Mutt Strut VIRTUAL 5K Run & Walk

September 6-13, 2020

About The Race

Mutt Strut is a dog-friendly 5K run/walk-a-thon benefiting the over 3,200 animals cared for each year at Tails Humane Society. Tails is 100% donor and service funded, which means we can’t provide our live-saving services to homeless pets without support from animal lovers like you!

This year’s Mutt Strut 5K will be held virtually. Enjoy a run or walk while benefiting homeless animals. Join us and run for the rescues!
