MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The annual Strut You Mutt Charity Walk is this Saturday in Marquette. The event brings dog lovers to Lower Harbor Park for a chance to show off their pets.
Strut Your Mutt is the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter’s (UPAWS) largest fundraiser for the year. Participants collect donations and win prizes based on how much they raised.
“All of the funds for Strut Your Mutt will be going to our general operating funds, it goes straight to helping these animals find loving homes, giving vet care, any sort of food. It costs a lot and our community comes out and they support us,” Strut Your Mutt Chair Ann Brownell said.
This will be the 12th year for Strut Your Mutt. It begins Saturday at 9 a.m. and goes until noon.
