For 24 years, the Mutt Strut and 5K have served as a way for people to come together and raise money to find forever homes for animals in their community. All funds raised go directly to support more than 2,000 animals that find their way to the Kennebec Valley Humane Society annually. Along with our 5K walk and run, we will have vendors, food, activities and much more! We hope to see you there!
