Fundraise for Tails

Have your family and friends help cheer you on as you train for the Mutt Strut Virtual 5k by helping you raise funds to support the animals at Tails Humane Society! Tails is 100% donor and service funded.  We rely on support from our community to providing our life-saving services to more than 3,200 animals who come to us for help each year.

Meet Lucky: Our 2020 MC

Lucky’s mom, Christina, was our the top fundraiser during the 2019 Mutt Strut 5K, which means his adorable face is featured on this year’s Mutt Strut logo! He was adopted from Tails earlier this year and is loving life in his forever home. Way to go, Lucky and Christina!

Thanks to a generous supporter, donations collected as part of the Mutt Strut 5k will be MATCHED up to $2,500. Plus, the person who raises the most money gets to feature their pet on next year’s Mutt Strut logo – just like Lucky!
