Saturday: Mutts strut at Coyote Point Park

Event raises money for Peninsula Humane Society

A parade of pooches will be gallivanting through Coyote Point Park in San Mateo on Saturday morning, but it is not the usual dog and pony show.

The 17th annual "Mutt Strutt" is designed to raise money and awareness for animals at the Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA, organization representatives said.

Dog owners are encouraged to register for the fundraiser, which consists of a 1-kilometer or 3-kilometer stroll through Coyote Point Park starting at 11 a.m.

Mutts can compete in contests before the walk to earn the title of "Most Talented" or "Best Costume." There will be food, music, and animal demonstrations.

Coyote Point Park is only open to dogs for the event. In the past, the event has drawn about 300 to 400 people and raised some $60,000, representatives said.

Registration for the "Mutt Strutt" is $28 and participants are encouraged to collect additional pledges.

Festivities are planned to begin at 9 a.m. at Coyote Point Park, located at 1701 Coyote Point Drive in San Mateo.
