This weekend, we attended of Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt LA.

Strut Your Mutt benefits many Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network Partners (all registered 501c3 organizations), through the generation of funds and publicity, which help promote animal health and well-being.

The motivation behind Best Friends’ motto, Get Involved, Help Save a Life, was clearly shown through enthusiastic volunteers who ensured the pet and human participants stayed safe, hydrated, and well informed.

Many prominent media fixtures to lend their celebrity to the cause, including humanitarian legend Jane Goodall, Los Angeles mayor Anthony Villaraigosa, and former Miss USA/animal welfare advocate Lu Parker.

Disney’s Spooky Buddies also lent additional enhancement to the event’s already scarily high cuteness quotient.
