Nuts for Mutts, Great Family Fun

Nuts for Mutts, Great Family Fun

What do you get when you mix dogs, kids, families, celebrities and fundraising?  You get “Nuts for Mutts” of course!  On Sunday, June 26th, Dogs and their families raised money and celebrated the wonderful work of New Leash On Life Animal Rescue, The Agoura/Calabasas Community Center and the Calabasas Rotary Club with their Nuts for Mutts Festival.

The day started with an early morning 5K walk-a-thon through the rolling hills of Calabasas.   Next up?  A Family Festival Day hosted by MADtv’s  Debra Wilson and Young and The Restless star Christian Le Blanc!


At the festival you could enter your dog in “The Show,”  a series of competitions showcasing common but incredible dogs. Mixed breed dogs strutted their stuff in categories such as Fastest MuttMost Ear-resistible Ears, and Most Toy/Ball Crazy in front of a panel of celebrity judges that included: Shirley Jones, Roma Mofia, Marty Ingles, Lucy Davis,  Keegan Michael, Mark Jackson, Bryon Russell, Bob DeCastro, Timothy Murphy, Rebecca Mader, Preston Bailey.


Outside the ring, there was plenty of human food, water for the dogs to drink and play in, fun for the kids with Gamez on Wheelz and Glamour on Wheels along with a variety of Dog and Human vendors helping with the cause.  You could get your temporary Paw Tattoo and learn about the importance of Canine First Aid with Kyle Young,  Water Therapy with For K9’s Only, Chiropractic Care for your Canine Companions with Dr. Johnson-, Holistic Food alternatives, Find innovative new styles for your dog with Woof-Linx Design and a big favorite, Drummond Ranch in Malibu, where you can take your dog to test for herding instincts and then herd sheep at their ranch!
