Building a compassionate community
through the care of companion animals

Mutt Strut VIRTUAL 5K Run & Walk

September 6-13, 2020

Thank You!

Our first ever Virtual 5K was a success! Thank you to everyone who ran, walked, fundraised, donated, and shared our posts. Together, we raised more than $12,000 to support the animals here at Tails! These funds will directly benefit the thousands of homeless companion animals that we will care for this year. THANK YOU!

We would also like to thank our sponsors who provide continuous support so that we can make life-saving events like this possible.

2020 Winners

Our top fundraiser this year was Christina Taylor and her dog Lucky! You might recognize lucky from this year’s Mutt Strut logo – he was adopted from Tails earlier this year! Thank you so much to Christina and all of our fundraisers who went above and beyond to help the animals in our care!

Race Winners:

Chris Miller & Holly (Male w/dog category)

Samantha Miller & Iris (Female w/dog category)

Mike Swedberg (Male solo runner)

Jennifer Roser (Female solo runner)


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!
