The annual walk and festival is unique in that the proceeds go directly to the rescue organizations that are participating. Using a pledge system allows teams of participants to raise funds for their chosen organization with the help of Best Friends to promote, market and coordinate the event. Strut Your Mutt 2013 raised almost $1.7 million, of which nearly $1.2 million was raised for 230 rescue groups and shelters across the nation.
