Strut Your Mutt 2022 Wrap-up

It was great to see all of the dogs and people that came out to support UPAWS. Thanks to the wonderful support of our community, we were able to raise $14,255 that goes back to support the day-to-day operations of our shelter. 

We got a lot of positive feedback about the new date and location. People seemed to really enjoy the walk in the woods. The new memorial walk also was well received and we hope to expand it next year. Thank you to Gus and his owners Kevin & Ashley Price for leading the walk as the leader of the pack. 

Thank you to everyone that helped make Strut Your Mutt possible including the volunteers, planning committee, donors, and everyone that came out to attend the event. Putting on this fun event for our community would not be possible without any of you!
