All the proceeds will go to spaying/neutering the following animals:
Free roaming cats
Pets of individuals on a low income
Shelter pets to prepare for adoption
Competitors have the opportunity to win great prizes by raising money for the Stone County SPCA. You do not have to walk to participate in the competition.Likewise, you do not have to raise funds to participate in the Mutt Strut.
The following prizes are for those raising the most funds:

Walkers will meet at the pavilion at Blaylock Park with their dogs. The walk consists of a ¼ mile stroll on the walking path with your pooch. Prizes will also be awarded for the biggest dog, the smallest dog, the best looking dog, the fastest dog, and dog with the best costume.
