FUTY Festival is a free annual volunteer appreciation party hosted by Mud Bay to celebrate and thank the animal welfare volunteers of the Pacific Northwest.
In addition to the celebration party, each organization is invited to nominate one volunteer for the FUTY Festival Volunteer Award of Excellence. Nominee profiles are posted on our website for an online vote. All nominees will be recognized at FUTY Festival and the three nominees with the most votes will receive $1000.00 cash prize and the nominating shelter will receive a $1000.00 donation from Mud Bay.
