The SPCA of Texas announces the 18th annual Strut Your Mutt, The Race to End Animal Cruelty, which includes a 5K timed race and a 3K fun walk, will be Saturday, April 15, 2023, at Fair Park (3809 Grand Avenue, Dallas, 75210). Day of Event registration begins at 7 a.m. at Big Tex Circle, with the race starting at 8 a.m. and the walk taking off at 8:15 a.m.
“Our annual Strut Your Mutt event brings important attention to the challenging subject of animal abuse in North Texas,” said SPCA of Texas President & CEO Karen Froehlich, CAWA. “Funds raised from this year’s Race to End Cruelty will be used to support the work of our Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit and the veterinary care services our medical teams provide to animals rescued out of abuse situations.”
Registration cost for the 5K race is $40 and for the 3K walk is $35; kids age 11 and under are free. Participants can register individually or as a team at gostrut.org, and will receive a goody bag filled with a Strut T-shirt, pet bandana, dog toy and dog treats. An Early Bird Special—$5 off registration—runs Jan. 23 – 26, 2023.
Longtime animal lovers and SPCA of Texas supporters Ali Turiano and Ismael Santiago are co-chairing this year’s Strut Your Mutt. “Animals share the same emotions as humans. They feel joy. They feel love. They even feel silly at times. They also feel sadness, neglect and hunger. The biggest difference is they have no voice. This is why we are so passionate about standing up for animals that are in these life-threatening situations.” –Ismael Santiago and Ali Turiano
Participants are welcome to bring their furry friends to strut along with them. A food truck will be on site and the Kid’s Corral and Post PAWty will bring fun for kids and adults alike. The Race to End Cruelty also features the Bow Wow Bazaar—approximately 40 vendors catering to animals and their humans. The Bazaar runs from 8 to 11 a.m. in the Fair Park Tower building.
SPCA of Texas is proud to recognize our sponsors including: Hill’s Pet Nutrition as our Starting Line Sponsor; Guaranty Bank & Trust as a Fido’s Favorite; and Chewy as a Program PAW-tner.
