2016 Strutt Your Mutt Canine Festival

On Saturday, Sep. 10, 2016, from 9am-5pm, the Humane Society of Richland County will host their largest fundraiser of the year - the 14th Annual Strutt Your Mutt Canine Festival. This family and pet friendly festival is action-packed, full of activities for you and your dog, and is held at Marshall Park in Ontario, OH.

Entry into the festival is FREE, but cash donations, puppy/kitten food, non-clumping litter, cleaning supplies, etc. will be accepted at the door.

Once again, the Akron-Canton Terrier Club will feature lurecoursing, where dogs compete for time chasing a mechanically operated lure around a winding fenced-in course. All dog breeds will certainly want to participate in this event, which was a huge hit last year!

Additional activities include a Bake Sale, a Vendor Expo including several animal-related products and rescues, Food Vendors, and the following:
  • 5K & Dog Run/Walk - Bring your dog if you like. This race will be chip-timed by OhioRaceDay.com. See their website at ohioraceday.com/races/strutt-your-mutt/ for pre-race registration, course layout and other race details.
  • Dog Shows and Contests - The talent and best-of-show contests are always fan favorites. And, back again this year, are the challenging competitions for you and your dog like: Musical Sits (like musical chairs), Egg & Spoon Race, Obedience Challenge, Temptation Alley and more.
  • Raffle - This large raffle includes great prizes from generous businesses who share our vision of saving the lives of our animal friends. Please support them with your patronage.

The Humane Society of Richland County is seeking sponsors, vendors and raffle items. Showcase your product or service at our Vendor Expo with a 10x10 booth for only $30 (non-profit groups are FREE).
