Strut Your Mutt

Strut Your Mutt 2014 – September 13

West Columbia Gorge Humane Society and Best Friends Animal Society are joining together for Strut Your Mutt to raise awareness and funds for needed spay & neuter services for dogs and cats in our community. Join us in helping eliminate the #1 cause of dog and cat related deaths in this country – pet overpopulation.

SYM Facebook 403x403 General (1)Strut Your Mutt is a fundraiser hosted by Best Friends Animal Society.  You walk with our “Dog Pack” and we receive all registration fees and money raised for our shelter!  Help us reach our goal of earning $5,000 at this event:

  • We need 50 participants to raise $100, that is only $70 after their initial $30 registration fee.
  • The event has a 1 and 2 mile walk, a timed 5K run, or you can be a virtual walker and not walk but still fundraise for WCGHS.

This is a very family-friendly event with food carts and a doggie-themed festival after the walk. The money we raise will be earmarked for our adoption and spay/neuter programs. We would love cat lovers to get involved too.
