2015 Strutt Your Mutt Canine Festival

On Saturday, Aug. 22, 2015 (9am-5pm) The Humane Society of Richland County will host their largest fundraiser of the year - the 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 the Richland County Fairgrounds in Mansfield, 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 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 Walkathon - The walkathon takes place on the fairgrounds track, and will start at the same time and location as the 5K race. Download the pledge sheet to raise money for abused, abandoned and neglected animals in Richland County. You may just win a prize for raising the most money for the animals.
  • Rummage Sale - Each year, this massive rummage sale seems to grow, so come out and find some treasures.
  • 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, Treat Toss Challenge, 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.
