SALT LAKE CITY – Thousands of humans and their pooches went for a walk at Liberty Park on Saturday as part of the largest dog-themed fundraiser in the state.

Donning special t-shirts or bandanas, supporters of Best Friends Animal Society and other animal rescue organizations participated in Strut Your Mutt.

“We’ve been doing this for 16 years now and this is a record turnout today. It just fills the park with a lot of very happy dog owners and the dogs get along very well together. There’s no problems with dogs getting on together so that’s fun,” said Gregory Castle, CEO of Best Friends Animal Society.

Best Friends Animal Society is headquartered in Kanab, but they also run No More Homeless Pets in Utah, working throughout the state.
