POTSDAM -- The Potsdam Humane Society will hold the fourth annual “Strut Your Mutt” 5k walk May 4.

Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m., with the walk to start at 10 a.m. A donation or pledge sheet serves as an entry fee.

Walkers without dogs are welcome.

All proceeds will benefit Cooper, a beagle being treated for heartworm.

Prizes will be handed out after the walk.

A craft and flea market will also be held in the Sandstone Arena from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Food, face painting and music by a local DJ will be featured, along with an appearance by Cubby T. Clown.

Tables will be available for $10.

“Because PHS relies a lot on private donations, events like Strut Your Mutt are absolutely essential to making our community a better place for people and pets,” said Alysia Maynard a vet technician at PHS and an organizer of the event. “So please come out and enjoy the crafts, fun, food, and of course, the dogs!”

To reserve a table call the humane society at 265-3199.
