Chestertown, MD – Saturday, June 10, 2017

Note new date!  Come out and join The Humane Society of Kent County for their 16th Annual Mutt Strut and 5K Run/Walk.  This year we are returning to the Chestertown Courthouse lawn for the Strut and activities, while the 5K Run/Walk will begin and end at Wilmer Park.  Bring your four-legged friends or just come to ‘dog watch,’ as we have contests, demonstrations and, of course, The Strut!  This year we will be showcasing the talented Skylar Landis of Belle Rose Kennels, and her dog, Auggie, for some training and agility demos. Who knows, your pup could be the next star of the show!  Vendors will be on hand with BBQ, ice cream, wine, clothing/apparel.
