The Humane Society of Indianapolis is hoping to break an attendance record for their annual Mutt Strut event.

Online registration for the event ends at 12 a.m. Thursday.

The 10th annual will take over the Indianapolis Motor Speedway April 27, giving participants the chance to walk the famous 2.5-mile oval traveled by motor racing superstars.

This event is the largest annual fundraiser for the Humane Society of Indianapolis. Money raised will help the non-profit organization fulfill its vision of ensuring that Central Indiana animals are treated with dignity and respect and live free from cruelty, harm and neglect. Each year the organization cares for more than 6,000 animals. Fundraising events like Mutt Strut are vital to IndyHumane, as the organization receives no public or private government funding.

Last year more than 6,000 people attended Mutt Strut, which has been named the Best Charitable Event in Indianapolis by NUVO readers for the last four years.

Opening Ceremonies begin at 10:45 a.m.

While online registration ends Thursday, participants can also register the day of the event.
