June 6, 2021: The 10th Annual WillaMutt Strut

It’s almost time to strut your stuff for shelter animals! We’re so excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the WillaMutt Strut—a community-favorite event that raises up to $50,000 each year to support adoptable pets. Registration for our 1K/5K fun run/walk opens on Monday, March 15. Click here for more information!

The WillaMutt Strut will be a virtual walk/run again this year. WHS is adhering to public health guidelines and recommendations of public health officials during the ongoing COVID-19 situation. A full schedule of socially-distanced events and virtual activities is coming soon! We look forward to seeing you, and your pets, strut your stuff virtually.
