KC Seen: Strutt With Your Mutt

We went to Strutt With Your Mutt this year and had a howling good time!

This year’s Strutt With Your Mutt event, Kansas City’s largest pet friendly 3K walk and 5K run and Wayside Waif’s signature fall fundraiser, helped the shelter raise more than $160,000 of much-needed funding for their incredible facilities. It was all because of the 1,200 caring participants and their perfectly-outfitted pets. There were so many great costumes, it was tough to pick a favorite during the furry fashion show after the walk through Brookside.

What does the money help Wayside do? The fundraiser helps them care for more than 6,500 animals every year. Proceeds from the event also help fund lifesaving medical care, local, regional and national animal rescue missions, behavior training and more. If you missed the fun this time, don’t worry—Wayside Waifs holds other fantastic fundraisers that owners and pets can participate in.
