The 2014 Strut Your Mutt was held on Saturday June 28 at its new time 4 pm to 6 pm.
All monies raised during this event go to the Homer Animal Friends spay/neuter program.
This year’s event, or 15th annual, was held on June 28, 2014 and was a giant success with sunshine throughout the event. The new time seemed to enable a larger number of people to come and join the festivities. We had thirty-six individuals and families register for the walk – many with more than one dog. We had no other of state participants this year, but we did have some individuals come down from Anchorage. Thank you all for joining us!!
There were booths manned by Homer Dog Trainers and Homer Animal Friends where lots of good information for dog owners was dispersed. Homer Dog Trainers even had a “Hot Dog Dunk” which was much appreciated by the dogs!!!! Also throughout the event there were random drawings for prizes donated by our event contributors.
