Calling all dog-lovers to the Mutt Strut Oct. 21

ALAMOSA — Join Valley Humane League on October 21 for its first annual Mutt Strut and Dog Costume Contest! The league hopes this will be an annual happening and fundraiser in support of all dogs at the shelter.

Registration for this event will be held from 9:30-10 a.m. at the west picnic pavilion in Cole Park in Alamosa. The registration fee of $20 includes a bandanna for participating dogs.

At 10 a.m., a dog costume contest will be held with three categories: Best costume, most original costume, and silliest costume. The sky is the limit!

The second event is the 1.2-mile Fun Run/Fun Walk, which will begin around 11 a.m. A shorter route will be available.

The third and final event is when everyone returns from the Fun Run/Walk and participates in a drawing for doggie swag bags!

For more information email: [email protected] or call 719-480-3220. All proceeds will benefit Valley Humane League.

All dogs must be on a leash, and please bring a poo bag.
