Thank you to everyone who made the 9th Annual PAWS Mutt Strut the biggest and best one yet! We had a record-setting turnout of 2,000+ PAWS supporters who came out to enjoy fun activities, music, and food, all to support our efforts to save and serve Philadelphia’s most vulnerable pets.
Together, we shattered previous records and raised $118,000! 11 PAWS dogs were adopted at the Mutt Strut, enabling us to rescue 11 more in their place. Our thanks go out to attendees, sponsors, volunteers, vendors, teams, and everyone who contributed to this incredible day.
Mutt Strutters enjoyed a scenic walk in The Navy Yard, live music from Clashing Plaid, a dog agility course, costume and talent contests, “ask the vet,” “ask the trainer,” grooming, delicious food, pet portraits, a pet fire safety course, and more.
