Ian Somerhalder Participates in Strut Your Mutt

Always willing to go the extra mile for a paws cause, actor Ian Somerhalder made great strides toward turning his dream of opening an animal sanctuary into a reality as he strolled with dog devotees and devoted fans as the ISF Dog Pack team captain at the Lafayette, Louisiana edition of Best Friends Animal Society’s annual event, Strut Your Mutt, which took place on September 22nd.

Although Strut Your Mutt 2012 is now in the past, fans of Fidos and famous faces can continue to raise funds for the future of The Ian Somerhalder Animal Sanctuary, and possibly win a prize in the process, by being either one of the event’s top 5 fundraisers from the ISF Dog Pack in Lafayette or one of the top 5 virtual fundraisers. The contest runs through October 6th, with the winners receiving an official Strut Your Mutt T-shirt autographed by the star.
