The goal of Strut Your Mutt is to raise awareness about animal cruelty in North Texas. The SPCA of Texas hopes to continue to positively impact this problem with the support of the community. The SPCA of Texas' Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit investigates more than 3,700 animal cruelty cases each year, many resulting in criminal convictions. As a result of these cases, the SPCA of Texas is successful in rescuing over 3,000 animals out of harm's way every year in multiple Texas counties.


After the race/walk, strutters will enjoy a live DJ, free mimosas and beer, as well as free hot dogs and hamburgers provided by Fuddrucker's. We will also have plenty of family-fun events for you to enjoy in our Bow-Wow-Bazaar, which will include vendor booths, demonstrations and more!

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
