Your Support Saves Lives

Every dollar raised at the Mutt Strut goes directly to PAWS to rescue the ones who need us most: dogs with nowhere else to go, pets with special medical needs, the smallest kittens, and cats of all kinds.

Your participation supports essential rescue services, veterinary care, adoption matchmaking, and safety net programs to prevent shelter intake. Together, we will make Philadelphia a no-kill city.
