Weekends are great for outdoor catch up time with our four legged friends. Yesterday, Manchester was strutting for a great cause.

Yesterday's temps ranged from the upper 70's to low 80's, and it was a perfect day for spending extra time with man's best friend. While some hiked in the White Mountains, or hung out near beaches, others were taking part in an event to raise money for Manchester's Animal Shelter.

According to WMUR News 9, hundreds of animal lovers did during the annual Mutt Strut fundraiser. More than 250 dogs and their owners took the one mile stroll around Dorrs Pond in Livingston Park. Event coordinator for Manchester Animal Shelter Laura Gilman stressed the importance of Mutt Strut. “We are a nonprofit, we run with 180 volunteers, and we run almost solely on the generosity of donors and fundraising, so this event helps us to raise a lot of money to help care for the animals.”

It was a hot day. Fortunately, Dozens of vendors offered services and treats for the animals.
