Annual Events

Best Friends Strut Your Mutt

This national dog walk, festival and fundraiser is held annually and benefits not only animals helped by Best Friends, but also animals at local rescue groups, shelters and other organizations that are part of Best Friends’ No More Homeless Pets Network. Hosted by Best Friends each fall in more than a dozen locations around the country, including New York City, Strut Your Mutt is a big and fun event, so lots of volunteers are needed to pull it off successfully.  Our annual Strut Your Mutt will take place in NYC at Pier 26 in Tribeca on October 7, 2017. Learn how to get involved here.
