Congratulations to Chrissy Rollyson for being this week’s top fundraiser!*

“This is Remi.  I met her my very first time volunteering at Best Friends.  She was in the Fairway and I knew she owned me from the first moment.  Her patience and love is what gets me going, and has fueled my passion for Animal Rescue.  It all began with a dog.”


*You, too, can get your pooch’s picture featured for one full week simply by being the top fundraiser between Wednesday and Tuesday from now until the event takes place.  But, you have to be registered to win!

7:00am –
Check-in and onsite registration opens

Why: To raise money for your favorite local animal welfare group (any of Best Friends’ No More Homeless Pets Network Partners) or for Best Friends Animal Society, and to help bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets®.

Registration Fees:


  • Individuals: $30 ($35 day-of)

  • Kids 12 and under with t-shirt: $20 ($25 day-of)

  • Virtual Participant (not attending our official Strut in Houston’s): $10 (does not include a t-shirt but our 2013 Strut shirts will be available for purchase). Virtual Participants, like Individual Walkers, can raise money for Best Friends or for a participating Network Partner–but will need to join a Network Partner’s Dog Pack in order to raise money for that group.

    Note: Every person who is attending the event must be registered (online or in person on the day of) in order to participate. Attendee t-shirts must be picked up at the event! If you register, but cannot attend, and would like your t-shirt, please send someone to pick it up at the event.  Best Friends is not able to mail t-shirts out once the event is over.
