WHY: The goal of Strut Your Mutt is to raise awareness about animal cruelty in North Texas. The SPCA of Texas' Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit rescues more than 2,500 animals from cruelty each year, many resulting in criminal convictions in multiple North Texas counties. This critical work continues, even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The SPCA of Texas hopes to continue to positively impact this issue with the ongoing support of the community.

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!"
