New Yorkers Raise Money For Pups Across The U.S. Just By Walking Their Dogs

NYC’s Fashion Week is over, so it’s time to put away the catwalk, and work what your puppy gave ya, down the much more charitable (and pawesome) muttwalk.

Show off your dog in NYC, while helping pups in need, this Saturday, at the Best Friends Animal Society‘s annual, Strut Your Mutt Dog Walk/Run!

The Strut Your Mutt fundraiser isn’t just for dog owners. Anyone who loves animals is welcome with open paws! The goal is to bring together local rescue groups, shelters, and regular ole dog lovers to help raise money for lifesaving adoption programs, and spay/ neuter services across the country.


Two, and four-legged walkers alike, will be strutting their mutt-stuff at Hudson River Park’s, Pier 26, in TriBeCa.

New this year, and for humans (with or without sporty pups), a 5K run will begin at 9am. The walking (and bringing up the wagging rear!) portion starts at 930am.


The finish line is not just filled with conwagulatory butt wiggles and face licks, but it is also a furry festival ( a furstival ) for dogs and dog lovers to enjoy goodies, contests, food trucks, photo ops, and lots of fun!

Also joining the pawdorable pedestrians this year, will be Zosia Mamet, star of HBO’s Girls, and her ridiculously cute dog, Moose. Best Friends Animal Society has raised more than $5.2 million through Strut Your Mutt. The national goal for 2015 is $2.6 million. So register for the Strut Your Mutt NYC now! We hope to see you there! It’s sure to be a wagnificent time!

Right, Moose?

Not in the NYC area? Portland, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and St. Louis’ Strut Your Mutt walks are coming up!
Live on the moon? You can still pawticipate with the Strut Your Mutt Challenge to make a pawsitive change in the lives of pups across the country!

So put some pep in your paws! Or pup in your step! Or just git along little doggy to the Strut Your Mutt festivities!
