For 2020, Wayside’s Fur Ball and Strutt With Your Mutt will be going virtual! While Wayside Waifs enjoys spending their special events with amazing animal-loving friends, the health and safety of their donors, volunteers, and staff are important to them.

The events may look a little different this year but will still be a lot of fun Fur Ball’s Caturday Night Live will have a very entertaining and heart-warming Live Virtual Show and Strutt With Your Mutt will now be a week-long virtual celebration (and include cats). Watch for more details about the two events as they get closer. As always, funds raised through these two signature events are crucial to Wayside serving 6,000+ homeless animals annually.

Fur Ball will stream live on Friday, August 21 at 7 pm. For more information or to register for Fur Ball please visit:

Strutt With Your Mutt will take place September 14-20 on social media. For more information, to start a virtual Strutt Team, and to register for Strutt please visit:

Wayside appreciates everyone’s understanding, flexibility, and support. If anyone has questions about either event, they can contact Special Events Manager, Molly Moody, at or 816-986-4409.
