The Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society's Mutt Strut will celebrate its 11th year as a fundraiser for animal rescue and adoption efforts in Philly. PAWS is the city's largest no-kill shelter.
The 2017 event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Navy Yard. Pets and their owners are invited to strut their stuff on a scenic walk through the grassy space at 11 a.m., then enjoy the rest of the activities the fall festival offers for both humans and animals.
Registration is $25 and includes a PAWS eco-bag and dog bandana. Check in begins at 9 a.m.
If you want to join the Mutt Strut but don't have a pet, consider "renting" a dog from PAWS for $100. You'll make a new friend and maybe want to adopt on the spot.
During the festival portion of the event, there will be a costume and talent contest, agility course, raffles, paw print painting, a photo booth, live music, giveaways and opportunities to talk with vets and trainers.
Food trucks will also be on-site for hungry festivalgoers.
