Strutt With Your Mutt

Why Walk?

Dog in yard

Your participation in Strutt With Your Mutt will provide comprehensive care to more than 6,000 homeless animals that come to Wayside Waifs this year. All funds raised stay right here in Kansas City to benefit the animals in our care. From life-saving medical care, behavior training, safe shelter, nutritious food and love, Wayside has been committed to helping abandoned, abused and homeless pets get a second chance at life. You make that possible. Join us on September 18 to celebrate your furry best friends and those who are still waiting to be rescued.
