Halloween Mutt Strut set Oct. 26


IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - The Snake River Animal Shelter is bringing back its beloved Mutt Strut after more than three years and is aiming for a record-breaking event with your help.

Participants in this event get to spend Oct. 26 running or walking with their pets for a great cause. Costumes for pets and humans are encouraged but not required. This isn't a race but a fun time to join together to have fun with your pets and show your support for our community's 501c3 rescue. 

The event will feature: 

  • Human & Pet Snack Break 
  • Costume Contest
  • Pet Fair with vendors who can help support your pet 

Each registration is a tax-deductible monetary donation to the 501c3 nonprofit that will benefit community-based programs that help to feed, care for and educate people and animals in need.

The event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Greenbelt Stage at 520 Memorial Drive near the roundabout on Memorial Drive in Idaho Falls and will take participants to the Freeman Park Band Shelter and then you will circle back to the Greenbelt Stage. The full "loop" is approximately 2.6 miles. This is not a race nor is it timed, just a chance to have fun and support your local nonprofit shelter.

Registrations are $35 for an individual, $145 for a household and $400 for a company with up to 20 employees. It includes a commemorative t-shirt.

“This has long been one of the community’s favorite events and we’re thrilled to bring it back as a Halloween-themed event," Executive Director Michelle Ziel-Dingman said.

Register now online to participate as a walker/runner HERE. Snake River Animal Shelter is also still looking for pet vendors HERE.
