Strut Your Mutt in Newtown
May 02, 2017 12:18AM
Mark your calendars for Strut Your Mutt on May 13 from 11am to 2pm in Newtown. This dog-friendly event will include a 2K dog walk and the Strut Your Mutt Pageant. A Doggy Fair will include vendors, games and food.
Admission is $10 for one dog and $5 for each additional dog. There is a limit of three dogs per handler. Proceeds raised will support the Newtown Park & Bark, an off-leash dog park located on Old Farm Road in Newtown. It is run by a volunteer group of Newtown resident dog lovers who joined forces in 2009. The town provided a parcel of land and private donations and annual fundraising events have raised funds to create and maintain the two-acre field adjacent to the animal shelter. Further enhancements are planned, including tree plantings, reseeding and electrical connections.
