How to Participate

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Strut your Mutt will be going virtual this year! Instead of a walk together, we will ask that everyone do the walk on their own at some point between September 12th and September 19th. We kick off strut virtually on September 12th at 12pm via Facebook video.

Daily Prizes!! Daily drawing for prizes for pre-registered participants who post a pic/video on your walk! All qualified participants who post will remain in weeklong drawings unless they have already been selected to win on any given day. Prizes will be mailed to you! Be sure to tag us at #sym2020upaws and #upaws
