Another year, another huge Mardi Gras celebration! Did you get the dogs and cats involved in all your festivities? Dressing them up in colorful outfits, hats and beaded necklaces is the fun part! Do not miss out on a great family event for everyone to enjoy. The entertainment is endless, just look at all the other cute dogs and cats dressed up for the occasion in the video below. If you didn’t this year, be sure to make the most of Mardi Gras and make it a fun family event celebration next year! Check out all the creative and colorful outfits others have come up with, the ideas are truly limitless and, in my personal opinion, quite entertaining!
If you are in the Baton Rouge Area go check out their annual Capital Area Animal Welfare Society (CAAWS) Mystic Krewe of Mutts parade! People enjoy a fun filled and unforgettable day with their dogs “Mardi Gras style” while enjoying activities and parading them in what has become one of Baton Rouge’s most beloved family events. The parade is the largest fund-raiser for CAAWS and raises much needed funds for CAAWS homeless animal care, Community Outreach, Humane Education and Spay/Neuter Programs, and for the CAAWS Shelter to keep adoptable animals safe and comfortable. Dogs are allowed to watch the parade on the sidelines, but it is not as much fun as being in the parade! Join the Krewe for the only Mardi Gras parade that allows dogs and their families to stroll up and down North Blvd. So gather your friends, dress-up you and your pooch, decorate a pet-sized float, and “party on” for a good CAAWS! Don’t forget to enter the contests for Best Costume, Best Float, and Best Group Theme to win prizes!
