The Greatest Spectacle in Dog Walking

April 29, 2017 | Indianapolis Motor Speedway



Mutt Strut is even better with a team, so grab your coworkers, friends, and family and form a Mutt Strut Pack! If you wonder how you can make the biggest fundraising impact for the animals at the Humane Society of Indianapolis, your best bet is a Pack.

Packs come in all shapes and sizes, and are formed by Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, book clubs, church groups, neighborhood associations, and families! It’s easy to form a Pack, too, and it doesn’t come with any additional registration fees. Whoever is leading the Pack should create their team when they register, and then others can join the Pack as they join up for Mutt Strut. (Forgot to create your Pack when you registered? Email us for help!) Your registration fees pool together and count toward your Pack’s fundraising goal, and your combined fundraising efforts lead to bigger benefits for IndyHumane! Not to mention, there are prizes for the top Packs, and fun challenges along the way.

Let’s Get Started!

Your Participant Center allows you to send recruitment and fundraising emails, so you can ask others to join your team right after you register, and you can add personalized messages for your team members. You can also share your Pack’s web address on Facebook, and encourage others to join with pre-designed, easy to use forms provided by IndyHumane.

Plus, Packs are invited to participate in contests and challenges during the lead up to Mutt Strut, and the team (top Corporate Pack, and top Community/Friends & Family Pack) that raises the most receives a special prize – 10 tickets to enjoy the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the Mari Hulman Suite during Indy 500 practice on Tuesday, May 16, 2017, as well as more fun prizes!

Ready? Set? Go!
