GROSSE POINTE SHORES (WWJ) – The Michigan Humane Society is calling all animal lovers to put their money where their FEET are. The 23rd annual Mutt March is taking place Sunday morning. About 100,000 animals in need of a loving home will benefit from the event.

Pets are allowed to bring their owners along for the walk and the first 600 pets will get free bandanas.

Ron Blauet, Creator of the Mutt March, is retiring after 45-years with the Humane Society.

Mutt March kicks off at 8 a.m. and runs (or marches) until noon on Sunday at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores.

Money raised goes to support the MHS as it works toward a goal of guaranteed placement of all healthy and treatable animals.

You can walk with or without your pet.

Several course lengths are available and water stops will be provided for people and their pets.
