What is Mutt Strut?

Mutt Strut is our annual dog-friendly fundraiser that will benefit the animals at your LHS. This year, along with the 1-mile Fun Walk, we will also have a Mutt Strut 5K race! No matter which option you choose, you can still form a team with your friends, family and co-workers, or fundraise on your own, to be eligible for fundraising prizes! All proceeds, including registration, fundraising, etc. will go to the animals at LHS. Click here to register today!

Mutt Strut will be held rain or shine. We are unable to offer refunds.

When is Mutt Strut? Where?

Mutt Strut Fun Walk and 5K will be held Saturday, June 9th at Keeneland.  Day-of registration will begin at 8am for both events. The Mutt Strut 5K will begin at 9am and the Fun Walk will begin shortly after. There will be local vendors before and after the run/walk so come early and stay late to support the businesses that support the animals at LHS!

What is the Mutt Strut 5k?

This year, in addition to our 1-mile Fun Walk, we are also offering a chip timed, competitive 5K race with top overall awards for both male and females.

Even if you choose to participate in the 5K you are still able to form or join a fundraising team or fundraise on your own. The Mutt Strut 5K will begin at 9am in front of Barn 2. Feel free to bring your leashed pup!

Packet pick-up for runners will be June 9th starting at 8am.

What is Lazy Mutt?

If you are unable to attend the event, or just don’t want to get out of bed quite so early, you can register as a Lazy Mutt. You are still able to join a team, fundraise, and are eligible for fundraising prizes.
