Greenville, SC | February 27, 2017 – The Greenville Humane Society is thrilled to announce the sixth annual Mutt Strut, presented by Papa John’s, will take place on Saturday, April 29th from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., at its new location in downtown Greenville.
The Mutt Strut is South Carolina’s largest dog-friendly race that includes a new 2-mile run/walk course throughout downtown Greenville. The event is family friendly, fun and easy outing for participants and their dogs. This year’s event features a “Mutt Market” and an after party throughout Falls Park. Participants are welcomed to complimentary refreshments before and after the race, live entertainment and plenty of dog-friendly fun. In past years, over 1,800 people and 1,500 dogs have participated in the race. This year’s event is expected to have the largest attendance yet.
“The Greenville Humane Society is the community’s humane society. Your participation helps us care for the thousands of animals that come through our doors,” explains Kim Pitman, Executive Director of the facility. “The Mutt Strut is our only fundraiser this year. We would love for everyone to come join us at the new location!”
All proceeds from the Mutt Strut benefit the Greenville Humane Society and the homeless pets in their care.
