You can help PAWS pets one step at a time when you join us for Strut Your Mutt!

On Saturday, September 28th, PAWS will be joining Best Friends Animal Society for their annual Strut Your Mutt event in New York City! In 2012, this exciting event drew more than 1,500 walkers and over 800 dogs. It raised over $205,000 for No More Homeless Pets Network Partners - a network of local shelters and rescues in our area.

This year, for the first time, PAWS will be a part of the pack and we're asking you to join in the fun by registering to strut at the event or if you can't strut with us, by becoming a Virtual Fundraiser!

Registration Fees:

  • Adult Registration: $25 Includes free T-shirt
  • Couples Registration: $45 Includes 2 free T-shirts
  • Virtual Walker Registration: $5 (DOES NOT include a t-shirt)
  • Junior Registration (12 and under): Free. (DOES NOT include a t-shirt)
  • Junior Registration (12 and under): $15 Includes free shirt

    All junior walkers MUST be accompanied by an adult!

    Our goal is to raise at least $15,000 to help our great pets and with your help we can not only reach that goal, but far exceed it! The pets of PAWS are counting on your support!

    How to Strut Your Mutt:

    Register to Walk as part of the PAWS Dog Pack! You'll set up your own fundraising page and invite friends to support you.

    Can't attend the event in NYC, but still want to support PAWS? Register as a Virtual Participant for the PAWS Dog Pack! You'll pay a reduced registration fee (which counts toward your donations). You'll set up your own fundraising page and invite friends to support your efforts.

    Which ever way you choose to strut - by attending the event in NYC or strutting virtually, you and your friends will be helping PAWS pets find a better life with a new, loving family!

    We encourage everyone to attend the live event in NYC! They are a blast! The event kicks off with a short 1-2 mile walk with all of the participants and their dogs. PAWS will have a large sign with our name on it and the PAWS dogs and all of our supporters will strut together!

    The walk is followed by a festival that has a wide variety of food vendors and animal-related activities! Past activities included photo booths, canine sport trials, doggy yoga or massage, contests (best doggy kiss, owner-dog look alike, etc...) and so much more! Check out Strut Your Mutt as the event gets closer for a full list of vendors and activities.

    Coming to the event also gives you the opportunity to see so many like-minded organizations coming together in the same place with the same mission: Strutting to get us one step closer to a world where there are "No More Homeless Pets". The event is a refreshing, unique way to meet other supporters and renew your spirit of animal welfare.
