Strut Your Mutt fundraiser for UPAWS happening this weekend

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Strut Your Mutt is coming this weekend.

The event brings dog lovers from all over the U.P. 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.

"It's beautiful down there and it's tradition and it's a lot of fun and it's a big fundraiser for us but besides that it's the biggest dog party of the year, it's a blast and this money goes to the general fund and helping the animals find homes," said Ann Brownell, the Strut Your Mutt Chair.

Strut Your Mutt is this Sunday at Lower Harbor Park in Marquette. It runs from 10 a.m to 1 p.m.

And TV6's own Sarah Blakely will be emceeing the event. This is the 14th year for Strut Your Mutt.
