Mutt Strut 5K Run & Walk

September 19, 2021

About The Race

Mutt Strut is a dog-friendly 5K run/walk-a-thon benefiting the over 3,300 animals cared for each year at Tails Humane Society. Tails is 100% donor and service fee 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 both virtually and in-person. However you choose to participate, you will be helping homeless animals!
