BRIGANTINE — Walk your dog and save the seals!

The Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine is hosting The Pup Strut, dogs lending a paw to help seal pups on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 17th Street and the beach from 9 to 11 a.m.

The cost is $25 per dog which includes a goodie bag for each pup with a commemorative MMSC “Cupid the Seal” bandana, a clip-on bag dispenser, and other cool surprises.

Same-day registrations are allowed so please plan on paying with cash (preferred) or a credit card. Also, allow yourselves enough time to register and fill out an event waiver prior to the walk start time.

Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. and the one-mile walk begins at 9:30 a.m.
