The Fifth Annual Mutt Derby to benefit the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast was held at the Fur Seasons in Stuart, FL on March 24th. The resort is a 8,000-sq. foot luxurious dog and cat boarding and pet spa.

The Fur Seasons Resort features private suites, activities for all pets and even an in-ground swimming pool for all pets to relax and chill on hot summer afternoons. With over 800 pet lovers from around the community it was the largest Mutt Derby so far. The event had a silent auction, pet vendors, free nail trims for all dogs, music and refreshments. A raffle prize of two nights at the Four Seaons in Palm Beach plus a round trip limo was raffled off, along with their pet enjoying a two night stay at the Fur Seasons Resort.

The Mutt Derby featured numerous rounds of racing for all weight classes of dogs along with their owners rooting them on as they raced down the track to the finish.
