Humane Society of Wayne County will host its annual Mutt Strut from noon to 3 p.m. on Sept. 9 at Silver Hill Technology Park, 1000 Technology Parkway, Newark.
This year’s theme is “Witches, Wizards and Woofers,” complete with Halloween costumes. Participants can encourage family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors and others to sponsor them by making a donation to HSWC.
Prizes will go to most money raised and best costume. Other activities include a 50-50 raffle, silent auction, wine tasting, door prizes and sponsor booths.
Dogs must have current vaccinations, including rabies. Do not bring dogs that are in season. Make sure dogs are social with other canines, and monitor animals for heat sensitivity. All dogs must be leashed and under their owner’s control. Water will be supplied. Pick up after dogs.
The event will run rain or shine. Shelter dogs are available to walk. Lunch items are sold at an additional cost.
Registration guarantees a T-shirt and goodie bag. Pick up forms as local veterinary offices and at HSWC, 1475 County House Road, Lyons. Call (315) 946-3389 or visit hswaynepets.org for information.
