Mutt Strut

Mutt Strut


The New Haven Schools Foundation is sad to report that we have had to cancel the Mutt Strut for October 2021. The board of directors had concerns about COVID, both in terms of participant safety and attendance.

We hope to re-launch the Mutt Strut in the Spring of 2022, so watch this space for more information after the first of the year.
