Strutt Your Stuff for Shelter Pets

Every year at the Music City Mutt Strutt, people and pooches alike gather to strut their stuff to save the lives of homeless and at-risk shelter pets! All money raised through Mutt Strutt enables the Nashville Humane Association to provide care, love, and attention to the adoptable pet population in Nashville, middle Tennessee, and all across the globe. Mutt Strutt is a 5K or 1 mile fun run, walk or strutt.
And the best part? Registration is just $20!

For the most enjoyable walk experience please remember these points:

  • Bring your animal only if he/she enjoys other animals and people.
  • Animals must be on leashed at all times.
  • Please be prepared to clean up after your animal.
  • Water will be provided for animals and walkers throughout the day.
  • Small snacks will be available after the walk.

You love Mutt Strutt and you love supporting the shelter pets at Nashville Humane. How do you make an even bigger impact? Build your own Mutt Strutt team of friends to join you!
Mutt Strutt is about raising funds to support the mission at NHA. So even if you and your friends don’t want to strutt, you can build a team of fundraisers and ask for contributions to NHA.

Corporate / Co-workers

Strutting your stuff for shelter pets and adoptable animals is paw-some! What’s even more paw-some? Strutting with friends and co-workers. You can start your own fundraising team and run together. Or you can coordinate with your employer/coworkers and all strutt for shelter pets together.

Why Strutt?

Why strutt? Well, what better way to get out there and support shelter pets than a fun run/walk/strutt in a beautiful Metro Nashville park on behalf of Nashville Humane Association.
