Why We Strut

At the very core of all the work of Best Friends Animal Society is the dream that one day kindness will replace cruelty, and animals will no longer be destroyed because they are unwanted or imperfect. Spaying and neutering will become commonplace, and adoption will be the first choice for everyone. Shelters will have the knowledge and resources to help rehabilitate special-needs animals and find the right family for every animal. Making this dream a reality is the mission we call No More Homeless Pets®.

Funds raised by Strut Your Mutt participants will go directly to our participating local rescue groups (No More Homeless Pets Network Partners) or to Best Friends Animal Society.

As part of the Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network and its mission of supporting local groups to achieve No More Homeless Pets®, Best Friends has opened up this fundraising opportunity to our national Network Partners.  All participating Network Partners are 501(c)3 organizations that are working toward achieving a world of No More Homeless Pets®. When you join one of our participating Network Partners’ teams (aka dog packs) and help raise money for them, they will receive 100% of all money raised (after 2.2 percent PayPal transaction fees).

More than five million beautiful, healthy animals are euthanized in shelters every year. Participating in Strut Your Mutt is one way you can help to change that tragic reality.
