Event Details

As COVID -19 continues to bring uncertainty, Best Friends is taking every precaution to keep both people and pets healthy and safe. Because there’s no way to predict the full extent or impact of the virus’s spread, we’ve made the decision to cancel our live Strut Your Mutt event in Salt Lake City this year. But you can still step up to save lives from the comfort of your home. Strut Your Mutt Day is the virtual walk and fundraising event that since 2011 has been raising crucial funds to save the lives of dogs and cats in communities across the country.

When you register for Strut Your Mutt Day, you can virtually raise funds for Best Friends Animal Society or for the participating local network partner of your choice. It all culminates on Strut Your Mutt Day, October 24, when animal lovers across the country are encouraged to get outside and walk their dogs, stay in and snuggle their cats or donate to help pets in their communities.

Although we can’t be face-to-face, we’re going to have more fun that ever with a calendar chock-full of brand-new engaging events hosted virtually on social media. You’ll be able to join us for events like “pig yoga,” Advocacy Day, the Bow Wow Film Festival and much more. More announcements are on the way, so be sure to check the event calendar regularly throughout the season. 

Though live events may not be happening, we can still make a huge difference for dogs and cats in shelters. Together, we can step up and Save Them All.

Our Jan/Feb issue is out on stands now! This issue means so much to us. Made with lots of love and tears. We hope you’ll grab a copy and enjoy every moment of reading it. ❤️ ...

Here's one from our upcoming Jan/Feb issue out on stands in just a few days. We hope you’ll grab a copy and enjoy every moment of reading it.⁠

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Pick up our Jan/Feb issue at your local grocer and read the full letter. ❤️

Mary's last-minute holiday gift ideas from last year are still as true and relevant today...⁠

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠

There was never a time there wasn’t Mary Malouf. Until now. Today, Mary died when a rogue wave swept her out to sea off the coast of Northern California. Only she – perhaps the world’s foremost lover of Bronte, BBC mysteries and, of course, Moby Dick – would appreciate such poetic drama.

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.” — Mary Brown Malouf. Ooops. Herman Mellville.
