2022 Mutt Strutt

 

May 22, 2022

 

This year at the 2022 Music City Mutt Strutt, people and pooches alike will gather to strutt their stuff for a great cause! All money raised through the Mutt Strutt enables the Nashville Humane Association to provide care and love to the animals entrusted to us each day. The event is outdoors, fun for the whole family, and we will be awarding medals to all runners and special prizes at the event. Mutt Strutt is a 5K or 1 mile fun run, walk, or strutt.

 

The Music City Mutt Strutt is about raising funds for homeless and at-risk dogs and cats. As an entirely gift-based not-for-profit, Nashville Humane relies on events like Mutt Strutt and generous gifts from donors like you to save lives. So a “race” like Mutt Strutt is less about the result on the course, and more about the results in our city and beyond. Because in the end, we’re not the Boston Marathon. This one is about Boston Terriers, and Chihuahuas, and Chocolate Labs, etc.  You’re helping us raise funds for shelter pets!

 

Registration: $20

BUILD YOUR OWN TEAM

 

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.

 

It’s Easy!  Hit the REGISTER BUTTON, then CREATE A TEAM. From there just fill in the information and share your team page with your friends, family and on social media!

 

 

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.

  • Water will be provided for animals and walkers throughout the day.
  • Small snacks will be available after the walk.

 

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.

 

  • Your super cheap registration fee of just $20 goes straight to the shelter pets at NHA
  • It’s great exercise
  • You get to do something good for yourself that is also good for someone else!
  • Supporting NHA means saving lives, last year NHA found happy tails for more than 3500 animals!
  • Did we mention that it’s a ton of fun?

 

So, don’t hesitate. Don’t wait or consternate. Just hit that REGISTER NOW button and let’s get struttin’ for shelter pets!!

As always – We THANK YOU for supporting Nashville Humane Association!!
