2018 Krewe of PAWS Mardi Gras Pet Parade Fundraiser

KREWE OF PAWS MARDI GRAS PET PARADE - February 3, 2018


Are you ready to pawty 80's style? Our 2018 Krewe of PAWS Mardi Gras Parade theme is 'PAWS Revisits The 80s'. There's lots of inspiration for those 80s costume and float ideas!

This 12th annual parade fundraiser is where a large portion of our funding comes from that allows us to rescue and spay/neuter so many pets each year! You can help us raise the MOST money yet with this year's parade! How?

1) Register your pet(s) and participate in the parade!
2) Bring the kids out and play some of the games before the parade (go fish, ring toss, bean bag toss, etc). Tickets are $1 per game.
3) Stop by our merchandise tent and purchase some PAWS gear (parade t-shirt...while supplies last, hoodies, hats, t-shirts and more)
4) Drop a donation in one of the donation jars around our parade staging area
5) Can't make it to the parade? You can still help :) Make a donation here and include a note that it's for the parade fundraiser! DONATE HERE
