This is one of Wood County Humane Society’s two major fundraisers, and is a crucial funding source for our shelter. We hope that you will join in the fun and help raise funds for the animals!
The Mutt Strut is a fun-filled, family event - that can include the family dog(s) - on Saturday, September 21 at the W.W. Knight Preserve in Perrysburg from 10 am until 2 pm, with registration starting at 9:30 am. The main event is a walk-a-thon to raise funds for the shelter, with walkers collecting sponsor support for their walk. Activities will include the Beauty PAWgent (11 am, registration 10– 10:45 am) to crown the king and queen of the Mutt Strut, vendors for shopping, Max & Erma’s mascots, Ruby the Red Eyed Tree Frog from WBGU-TV, unicycling/juggling by Andrew Schuman, the Blue Booth photo booth by Jeff Beach Photo, FREE dog training advice from K-9 Solutions, pet sketches by Derek Brennan plus refreshments. This year we are delighted to also host the Wiener Dog Nationals, which will bring dachshund lovers from three states to our event!
Walkers can collect donations from family, friends, neighbors, employers, co-workers, and businesses in person or online to sponsor your walk. ! Set-up your own personal online fundraising page at http://www.razoo.com/team/Mutt-Strutt-Pledge-Masters and click “Fundraise.” The $15 registration fee will be waived for walkers who turn in $15 or more in donations. Every registrant gets a goodie bag with coupons and treats. The more you collect, the more you help the animals - and the more prizes you win! Raise $50+ and get a T-shirt. There will be great prize baskets for those raising the most money for both kids and adults. Contact WoodCountyHumane@gmail.com or call 419-378-1178 with any questions.
