Strut Your Mutt to Benefit Indy Humane Society

Join the Humane Society of Indianapolis for Mutt Strut 2019 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on April 27. Known as the greatest spectacle in dog walking, this one-of-a-kind event will bring people together from across Indiana and the country to walk the family two-and-one-half-mile oval at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in support of the Humane Society.

Individuals can register to walk, with or without a pet, or create a Mutt Strut Pack (team) to raise money for IndyHumane as a group with friends, family or co-workers. Registration opens at 9:30 a.m. The track will remain open to walkers until 2:30 p.m. for this rolling-start event that was voted Best Charitable Event in Indianapolis by NUVO readers the last nine years in a row.

Through registrations, individuals and Packs raise funds for IndyHumane and all proceeds go to help save the lives of more than 6,000 animals the shelter helps each year. The organization encourages participants to get friends, family, coworkers and neighbors to support their fundraising efforts and to set a fundraising goal of $700. This amount is, on average, what they spend to care for each animal they take in, including medical attention, feeding, training and more. IndyHumane doesn’t put animals down for space or time and operates completely on donations.
