7th Annual Mutt Strut a Huge Success – Thank you!

Mutt StrutThank you to everyone who made the 7th Annual PAWS Mutt Strut a day to remember! We had a record-breaking turnout and beautiful weather at The Navy Yard. 2,000+ PAWS friends came out to enjoy fun activities, music, and food, all to support our efforts to save and serve the city’s most vulnerable pets.

Together, we raised over $93,000, and 12 PAWS dogs left the event with their new families, enabling us to rescue 12 more in their place.

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.
