Join Us at the Mutt Strut!

On Saturday, October 11, 2014, Philadelphia will once again go to the dogs! At the 8th Annual PAWS Mutt Strut, dogs and the people who love them will walk the scenic route in The Navy Yard to raise funds and awareness for PAWS' efforts to save Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. 
When: Saturday, October 11, 2014
Where: The Navy Yard, 4500 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA
Plenty of free parking!
Registration fee: $25 per person (kids 12 and under: free!). Register now! All registrants get a PAWS eco-bag and dog bandana on the day of the event. 
Don't have a mutt to strut? No problem! Register and join us for a great event for a great cause, or "rent" a PAWS dog for the day and make a new friend, for the afternoon or for life! 

Looking to adopt? Plenty of PAWS dogs will be on-hand looking for loving homes. Come meet your new best friend!

About PAWS:
PAWS is Philadelphia's largest no-kill shelter, and is dedicated to saving the city's homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. Through its adoption locations, special events, and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for thousands of pets each year. PAWS also operates two high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter and wellness clinics serving pet owners who cannot afford basic veterinary care, and rescue organizations that need affordable services to carry out their lifesaving work. These facilities, which serve more than 16,000 animals per year, plays a critical role
in achieving our mission of reducing and ultimately eliminating the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia's animals.
