Pinetop, AZ, June 12, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Mutt Strutt, to be held from 9 AM to 4 PM, will have a 5K strutt/walk through the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, yoga class with your dog, Phoenix Area Disc Dog performance and workshops, and multiple pet contests, including a pet parade in costume. Vendors will be selling a variety of wares, and food and drink will be available from p.l.a.c.&s., the chamber, Walking Down Ranch (a nonprofit veterans’ organization), and My Sister Can’t Cook Catering.
“As dog and animal lovers our chamber wanted to find a way to provide a save haven for animals affected by the big bangs of regional fireworks shows,” said Cyndie Shaffstall, chairman of the Pinetop-Lakeside Chamber of Commerce. “Most of the local cabins, hotels, and lodging offer pet-friendly rooms, so the White Mountains of Arizona is the perfect getaway for anyone who wants a quiet retreat during the Independence Day celebrations. Our mountain community enjoys temperatures typically 30° cooler than nearby Phoenix and Tucson, so this is the perfect escape for our furry desert neighbors - and their owners.”
Sponsored by Aspen Ridge Animal Hospital, Bev Best HomeSmart Professionals Elite Group, Best Mountain Blinds, Spider Trainers, Open Spaces Yoga Center, Walgreens, Hushhh Bakehouse, Pet Allies, My Sister Can’t Cook Catering, and Phoenix Area Disc Dogs, the event is expected to draw 500+ visitors.
Entrance is free to pet lovers and owners and contestant fees vary. Tickets are available online at https://www.pinetoplakesidechamber.com/product-category/tickets/
