LAKE PLACID — The Tri-Lakes Humane Society and North Country SPCA are teaming up again for the annual Mutt Strut 5K fun run, scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 22 at 10 a.m.
Jointly benefiting both organizations, all ages are welcome to join in the sixth year of this annual untimed fun run for humans and canines alike.
“This event is a great opportunity for both organizations to come together with our animal-loving community and the dogs they love most,” Carla M. Stroud, shelter director at the Tri-Lakes Humane Society, said in a press release. “It’s such a fun way to show your support.”
