On Saturday, September 17th, 2016 more than 500 people and pooches will strut their stuff at the Music City Mutt Strutt 5k Run/Walk at Centennial Park, all in support of Nashville Humane Association!
Anyone can sign up to run or walk, alone or as part of a Team, and set up your own fundraising website page on the Mutt Strutt CrowdRise Page to help raise funding to support the NHA animals. Our goal is to raise 15,000 through the race - top fundraisers will win special recognition and prizes the day of the run!
After the Mutt Strutt 5k Run/Walk 6,000+ dog owners descend upon Centennial Park for the Dog Day Festival, Middle Tennessee’s largest one day event celebrating and supporting our four-legged friends and their owners. Pet owners are treated to a variety of activities to pamper their four furry friends, including a shopping pavilion, Doggie Fun Zone, Agility Course, Kids Zone, Bounce Houses, Carnival Games, Pet Portraits, Teddy’s Wagon with adoptable pets and microchip clinics, training and agility clinics, K-9 Demonstrations & Contests, and lots of yummy food trucks!
Nashville Humane Association is committed to providing responsible homes, controlling pet overpopulation, and promoting the humane treatment of animals.
NHA, recognized nationally for our outstanding programs, is not a government agency or part of a national humane organization. We are an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has served the Nashville community for over 120 years. NHA relies on donations from individuals, foundations and corporations. All funds raised through Mutt Strutt and Dog Day enable us to provide care and love to the animals entrusted to us each day.
Thanks to our supporters, NHA was able to help over 4,000 animals find furr-ever homes and spayed and neutered over 8,000 dogs and cats in 2015. We could not do it without friends like you to help us to fulfill our mission!
