Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt is a series of charity dog walks that bring entire communities together to raise money to help save the lives of homeless pets.

This is much more then a fundraising walk. Strut Your Mutt is a fun-filled festival where four-, three- and two-legged participants of all ages can take part in activities like doggie yoga, pet portraits, music, contests and more.

In 2018, at the many events across the country, as well as online, participants came together to show their support for the animals. Together, more than $2.3 million was raised.

Each year, our Gala for the Children brings together APCH’s long-standing supporters as well as new friends to celebrate our youth and raise funds to support the organization’s critical work.

It is a fun and meaningful evening dedicated to understanding our mission, meeting our young people, enjoying APCH music and dance, and sharing the company of our Board of Directors and fellow investors in the lives of the youth and families we serve.

This year, we honor Johnny Lopez, Founding Partner of Platinum Equity, with the Debrah Constance Humanitarian Award, and Damon Wolf, President of Worldwide Marketing for Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, with the Children’s Inspiration Award.

The night will begin with a cocktail party and extensive silent auction that includes fantastic, once in a lifetime experiences, trips, rare wines, sports tickets, artwork, jewelry, and more.

Once seated, guests are treated to stories from our APCH youth and families, dance and music from our youth (and sometimes surprise guests like Stevie Wonder or Gavin Rossdale), and heartfelt remarks from our Board Chair, Executive Director and our annual honorees.
