Mutt Strut 2013 pledge walk helps Lake Humane Society


August 10, 2013: Lake Humane Society is hosting their 19th Annual Mutt Strut at Mentor Municipal Center on Saturday, August 10th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Mutt Strut is an annual pledge walk benefiting the injured, abused and abandoned animals at Lake Humane Society, a non-profit animal shelter. Members of the community can show their support and attend this event after collecting donations for the animals. Walkers are welcome to bring their dogs along to join in on the day of fun (as long as they are dog and people-friendly)! Fundraisers who raise $25 or more get free admission and a complimentary Mutt Strut t-shirt (while supplies last).

Mutt Strut includes many fun activities, such as: live music by Dan McCoy, canine games and contests, information on Lake Humane’s programs and services, an agility course provided by our friends at PetWorks, face painting and crafts for the children, demonstrations, a Chinese Auction and so much more! To showcase some of the shelter’s adoptable dogs, LHS puts on an adorable runway show called “Project Ruffway.” But that’s not all! The event also features a huge variety of vendors who make up the “Mutt Mall” where guests can do some shopping for them and their pooch! The event is rain or shine!

Mutt Strut gives the community an opportunity to get involved and help support their local animal shelter. Lake Humane Society is a non-profit animal shelter which receives no government or state funding of any sort. The organization relies solely on contributions made by their community. 100% of the proceeds made at this fundraiser will go towards the care of the thousands of animals that enter the shelter each year. This event is loads of fun for families, people of all ages and their dogs. This year, raising pledges is easier than ever with the use of an online fundraising tool, FirstGiving.
