SPCA of Texas Reschedules 15th Annual
Strut Your Mutt, The Race to End Animal Cruelty

 
(DALLAS, TX); June 9, 2020 – The SPCA of Texas is excited to announce that the 15th Annual Strut Your Mutt, the Race to End Animal Cruelty, presented by Hill’s Pet Nutrition and VCA Animal Hospitals, has been rescheduled for Sunday, November 8, 2020 at the base of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in Dallas! Registration will begin at noon and the start time is 1 p.m. Visit gostrut.org to register and start fundraising today!
 
Due to a shortened time frame for the event, Strut 2020 will now be a 3K Fun Walk ONLY in person, and the SPCA of Texas is also including an all new option to participate and fundraise virtually! Strutters opting for the 3K will still receive their Strut Your Mutt t-shirt. Registrations for the all-new virtual option will be able to choose whether or not they’d like to receive a t-shirt. Runners who previously registered for the 5K are welcome to bring out their mutts for a brisk 3K strut, and will still receive a tech shirt with their registration!

The SPCA of Texas will continue to follow the news closely regarding all COVID-19 updates and will continue to adhere to all applicable guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the state and city government. This will, of course, play a significant factor in their planning efforts. Rescheduling this event has enabled the organization to provide everyone who makes Strut Your Mutt fun and impactful, the great experience that they expect and deserve in the safest environment possible.
 
All current registrations will automatically be applied to this rescheduled event. Remember that fundraising hasn’t stopped and when strutters feel comfortable, they may please continue! Also, those already registered can still ask their friends and family to join them at www.gostrut.org. Check out the fundraising toolkit at spca.org/symtools for tons of great fundraising tips, a link to download the brand new app, a social media guide, printable posters and more.
 
The SPCA of Texas sincerely thanks all of the Strut Your Mutt family for their support and patience. The organization will continue to share updates about their plans and outline specific procedures and protocols to ensure the safety of everyone at the event via e­mail and phone to registered participants, team captains, and sponsors, as well as on their Facebook event page and on gostrut.org.

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!"
