Mutt Strut Returns to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2017

The Humane Society of Indianapolis is excited to announce the return of Mutt Strut to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. On Saturday, April 29, 2017, thousands of people and their furry friends will hit the track to walk for the animals. 2017 will mark IndyHumane’s 14th annual Mutt Strut.

This event is the largest annual fundraiser for the Humane Society of Indianapolis. Money raised will help the non-profit organization fulfill its vision of ensuring that Central Indiana animals are treated with dignity and respect and live free from cruelty, harm, and neglect. Each year, the organization cares for more than 5,000 animals. Fundraising events like Mutt Strut are vital to IndyHumane, as the organization receives no government funding or funds from national organizations like the Humane Society of the United States. 

Mutt Strut 2016 was held away from the IMS for the first time in its 13-year history, during Project 100 construction at the Speedway. Garfield Park welcomed supporters of IndyHumane for a fun-filled day at the park. IndyHumane is grateful to both Garfield Park and the IMS for supporting Mutt Strut and the mission of the Humane Society of Indianapolis.  

“We are very grateful to Garfield Park for being so accommodating, welcoming, and supportive – and for providing a beautiful venue for Mutt Strut 2016,” John Aleshire, CEO of IndyHumane, says. “We are looking forward to returning to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2017 and continuing our rich partnership with the Track.”
