March for JHS and the Homeless Animals of Jacksonville

Registration is now open for Mutt March, northeast Florida’s largest pet walk and festival! All proceeds from Mutt March will benefit the more than 8,000 pets we care for each year at the Jacksonville Humane Society.

Mutt March 2019 is set to take place on Saturday, April 13, at the JHS Adoption, Education and Pet Help Center. This year’s walking route will take people and their pups down Beach Boulevard and through the neighborhood surrounding the beautiful JHS campus.

How can you get involved?

The walk:

You can register to walk as an individual or form a team.

Everyone who registers by January 31 will gain access to the Mutt March VIP Room, featuring private check-in, coffee, mimosas, and tasty breakfast treats for both humans and dogs.

Can’t make it on April 13? Register as a virtual walker and raise funds for the animals online!

The festival:

No dog? No problem!

Following the walk, Mutt March attendees will be able to enjoy a pet- and family-friendly festival featuring dozens of vendors, a silent auction, food trucks, a kids’ zone, live music, an appearance by the Purina Pro Plan Performance Team, and more. There is no cost to attend the festival portion of the event.

Check out the Purina Pro Plan Performance Team in action!

The JHS Adoption Center will remain open during Mutt March, so if you’ve been considering adding a new pet to your family, April 13 would be a great day to do so!
