Million Mutt March

May 7th begins "Be Kind To Animals Week" and also on Sunday, May 7th, the first annual MILLION MUTT MARCH! will take place at the Capitol in Washington, D.C. in order to celebrate national "Mayday For Mutts" a nationwide effort to promote adoption of mixed-breed, older, and special needs dogs, and help eliminate canine discrimination. ALL DOGS WELCOME RGARDLESS OF PEDIGREE OR LACK THEREOF.

Marchers will meet at the East Front of the Capitol in Washington D.C. The actual march will take place around the Capitol grounds.

Sponsors of the march are:

Indian Lake Screen Printing


Chicken Soup for the Dog & Cat Lover's Soul

Lost Dog Cafe

Humane Society of the United States


Three Dog Bakery


Fast Signs

The Bark magazine

Communication Express

and of course all the wonderful volunteers without whom this event would be impossible. The march is co-organized by MetroPets Online and Karen Derrico, author of the book, Unforgettable Mutts: Pure of Heart Not of Breed.

Starting at 10am local animal shelters and rescue groups will bring mixed-breed and special needs dogs as representatives to join in the march. These dogs will be "tagged" as adoptable, however there will be no adoptions conducted at the event. Various posters and literature will be available at the event from different organizations, as well as information on Mayday For Mutts. 3-Dog Bakery will be on hand dishing out yummy cake for the canine marchers.

You are invited to bring your canine and human family members to join in the march and help promote this important cause. Please make sure to fill out the registration form. In order to follow Capitol regulations, each participant must complete a registration form prior to the event. The registration form and more information can be found at
