Thank You for Participating in the 6th Annual Strut Your Mutt

Thank you for sharing such a wonderful day with the strut 2015 (2)Potsdam Humane Society at the 6th Annual Strut Your Mutt! Funds were raised to assist with animal medical costs to assist PHS in it’s no-kill mission. The day kicked off with the 5K Walk with 4 water “Pit Stops”. Over 50 prizes, generously donated by local businesses, were awarded to participants.First prize was award to Susan Kramer, who individually raised a total of $1,250 for the animals!

Over 25 vendors displayed and sold items in the Craft & Vendor show inside the Pine Street Arena. Concessions by Pastimes, pony rides, and face painting for the kids were added to the mix. The arena also hosted the Clarkson & Potsdam Garden Club’s Annual Plant Sale. The Friends of Potsdam Humane Society group (FOPHS) raised funds by hosting a pet photo contest and raffled off baskets donated by community members.

The family IMAG2180 (2)and pet friendly day raised $6,500, with more funds still coming in! “We are extremely great full to all the local businesses and organizations that donated prizes and items for Strut, and of course we could not forget all of our walkers who came out to support PHS, as well as the volunteers who helped make this day possible”, stated Alysia Maynard, PHS Director.

The Strut event raised $1,000 more than last year. Plans are already in the mix for next year’s “Strut Your Mutt”, which is always held the first Saturday of May (May 7, 2016).
