Strut Your Mutt 2021 Update

We truly could not have asked for a better day to be back in person for Strut Your Mutt! It was a great day of walking, activities, fun, contests, and support for UPAWS and all of the animals that have or will come through UPAWS’ doors. With the generous support from our community, we were able to raise $14,451.13 to support the mission of UPAWS! All proceeds of this event go directly to the care of our animals.

UPAWS would like to recognize the following top fundraisers:

  • Kerri Waun: $2215.75
  • Kathi Fosburg: $1576.74
  • Ann Brownell: $1163.16
  • Cheryl Rehmann : $1005
  • Laura Aldridge: $760.16

Congratulations and thank you to our leader of the pack, Sophie, and owner Cliff Heliste, to lead our walk!

Finally, I want to sincerely thank every single person involved in this event. Most of you know that this is my first year as chair of this event, and it truly takes a village for it to come together. A big thank you to all of our sponsors: Art Unlimited, Coldwell Banker, and TV6. I can’t thank all of the volunteers enough for their time and energy they put in to make Strut a success. It was so heartwarming to see both new and familiar faces willing to come out or work behind the scenes to help make Strut happen. Finally, thank you to everyone that came out and supported Strut Your Mutt. We don’t count the number of dogs that come, but I heard from several people that this year could have set a record! We could not have put on this event without any of you!

Looking forward to seeing you all next year!
