Due to growing concerns for the health and safety of our community amid COVID-19, we decided to modify the 2021 Mutt March 5k & Festival.

This year, the 5k and newly added 10k will take place in person at Memorial Park in Stuart on Saturday, March 27, with staggered start times beginning at 7:30 AM. Race packets must be picked up in advance at Fleet Feet, located at 2440 NW Federal Highway in Stuart, on either Thursday, March 25 between 12 and 6 PM or on Friday, March 26 between 12 and 4 PM.

The Mutt March festival will be entirely virtual with a variety activities aimed to entertain and educate each participant!

Tune in to the Facebook Page starting at 9:00 am for a heartwarming message from the HSTC President and CEO Frank Valente, a morning greeting by Sunny 107.9 FM radio personality, Jennifer Ross, and a Blessing of the Animals by Rev. Jude Denning of Unity of Stuart. Then join us for a virtual walk followed by steals and deals in the virtual vendor market, a message from the shelter veterinarian, Tips from the Trainer, a live video featuring adoptable pets and even a costume contest!

We are proud to say that the 2020 virtual Mutt March brought in more than $13,000 to benefit animals at HSTC! Of that, more than $5,000 was raised directly from those who were actively fundraising on our behalf, and we're hoping you can help us do even better this year!
