Event Information

Event Info:
This is a critical fundraising event to support the mission of Halifax Humane Society. The Mutt Strutt is an annual 5K Fun Run/Walk-a-thon held on the World's Most Famous Beach in which dogs are invited to join in the festivities. The only day of the year they are allowed on Daytona beach!!

The event takes place on Saturday, April 29th, 2017 at the Daytona Beach Bandshell. All ages are encouraged to join us for a day of fun with our four-legged friends. Ask family, friends, and colleagues to support your efforts on behalf of HHS homeless animals and bring us closer to the goal of every healthy and treatable pet being guaranteed a home.

Safety Guidelines!!

With 1,500 people and their dogs expected to attend, it's important that everyone follows these rules to make sure we all enjoy the day.
• All dogs must be kept on a leash no more than 6 feet long.
• All dogs must be up to date on vaccinations.  
• All owners must clean up after their dogs. Plastic bags will be available at the registration table, but please come prepared with bags of your own. 
• If you are bringing your dog, you should be confident of his/her ability to behave appropriately in a crowd and around lots of other dogs. Ask a dog owner's permission before approaching with your dog or child, and please dispense food/treats only to your own dog.

You can Run, Walk OR ROLL!!
