Strutt with your Mutt

Strutt with your Mutt is an annual fundraising walk/run that was held Sunday, September 25th 2022 to benefit our friends at Wayside Waifs. Wayside Waifs is Kansas City’s largest and most comprehensive no-kill pet adoption campus, and thousands of pets come through their doors every year searching for new families. 

We love being able to participate in Strutt with your Mutt every year, and we love that it’s held right in our Brookside neighborhood! Every year, we look forward to sponsoring a vendor booth where we give away gifts and goodies to old friends and new who stop by with their pets to say hello!  Many of our staff and their friends and family were able to walk away with medals after participating in the fun run with their animals. 

We are so proud to have the opportunity to support and celebrate the pets of Wayside Waifs, the employees who work so hard to get them into forever homes, and the adopters who take a chance on loving a shelter pet.

Brookside St. Patrick's Warm-Up Parade

Each spring, our veterinary team looks forward to marching in the Brookside St. Patrick’s Warm-Up Parade.  Staff, family and friends of Noah’s Ark that are not marching in the parade can enjoy the parade from the front lawn of the clinic as the parade passes by.

The 2022 Parade was the 40th annual Brookside Warm-Up Parade.  With the parade being cancelled the two years prior, it felt even more special as all gathered again.  We had a great time hosting a watch party for friends of Noah’s Ark.  In this year’s parade entry, we had a 1952 Green Chevy “Truck of Luck” and a charming little smart car.  All who marched, had on balloon backpacks with many of our furry companions enjoying the parade with us.  Clifford was a favorite with the children along the parade route!

All of us here at Noah’s Ark, always enjoy seeing all our wonderful Brookside neighbors during the parade festivities and look forward to the years to come.
