SPCA of Texas Postpones the 15th Annual Strut Your Mutt, The Race to End Animal Cruelty 
Due to Current Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Concerns

(DALLAS, TX); March 27, 2020: After careful consideration, the SPCA of Texas has made the difficult decision to postpone Strut Your Mutt, the Race to End Animal Cruelty, previously slated for May 9th, to a later date this fall. Having spent the past months preparing, the organization is sincerely saddened to make this decision.

The safety and wellbeing of the human and animal participants, volunteers, sponsors, supporters, and staff of Strut Your Mutt is the top priority to the SPCA of Texas. Rescheduling the 2,000+ attendee event will enable the organization to provide everyone who makes Strut Your Mutt the fun and impactful event it is the best experience that they expect and deserve in a safe environment.

The SPCA of Texas sincerely thanks all of the Strut Your Mutt family for their support. The organization is working to finalize the details on the new date and more, and will share updates about plans via e­mail and phone to registered participants, team captains, and sponsors, as well as on their Facebook event page and on as soon as possible. All sponsorships and registrations will automatically be applied to the rescheduled event.

SPCA of Texas Voices

"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!"
