A Doggone Day of Fun at Victory Field
October 23, 2021


Join us for Mutt Strut, IndyHumane’s largest annual fundraising event! Registration is open and we look forward to sharing the day with you. Watch your inbox and be sure to follow IndyHumane on social media for giveaways, fundraising incentives, and more.
Registration at 8:30 a.m. | Ceremony at 10 | Walk at 10:30

Register ASAP to guarantee your limited-edition Mutt Strut shirt featuring this year’s Top Dog, Sonny! Folks who pre-register Mutt Strut bandanas may be purchased for $10 with your registration – be sure to order one with your registration, as we will only order a limited number and when they’re gone, they’re gone!

  • Register before September 1st: You will be guaranteed a shirt in your size if you register by this date.
  • Register before the event: You may receive a shirt on a first-come, first-served basis, while sizes and supplies last.
  • Folks can register day-of to fundraise, participate, and show their support, but are not guaranteed a shirt or packet.

Participants can pick up shirts and other materials at packet pickup locations around Indianapolis in the weeks leading up to Mutt Strut.

  • Register as an individual. You can register as an individual to attend Mutt Strut. Please note, if you sign up as an individual and later want to join a team, contact us at muttstrut@indyhumane.org and we help you make this change.
  • Create a team. Register and fundraise with your company, family or group!
  • Join a team. If your group has already started a team, you can search for them and join as a member. Or start your own Team and invite your friends and coworkers to join you in support of IndyHumane.

To participate in Mutt Strut, each person registers as an individual or as part of a Team. You do not need to register your dog(s) (or cats, turtles, potbellied pigs or other walk-able animals). Once you register, you can use your login information to visit the Participant Center for tips and tools to help fundraise. You’ll participate in fun activities, fundraise to become next year’s Top Dog, and help IndyHumane save animals all year long. You can register online until 11:59 p.m. Thursday 10/21, or you may register in person at the event.

In the event of cancellation due to inclement weather or other safety concerns, Mutt Strut registration fees are non-refundable.
