Parade of Pups - SCHS

The Best Friends of Shelby Humane Society along with Cajun Steamer and Patton Creek in Hoover will celebrate Mardi Gras with a Pups on Parade and an afternoon of fun on February 19, 2017 at 2pm (parade registration at 2, parade starts at 2:45. Party at Cajun Steamer during and after!)

For all small donation or corporate sponsorships, you can walk the parade then sit back, enjoy music and some great food, fun for kids and mingle with other pet lovers. 

Small floats are allowed and encouraged (built on wagons, golf carts, bicycles etc.) and costumes are a must. Feel free to throw out beads, promotional items, candy (please no chocolate, it is bad for the pups). Dress your pups (must be leashed, for their protection ), kiddos, school, work, social groups, businesses and come walk for a cause, SHELBY HUMANE. Most of all just have a great time! 

Prizes for best float and best dog in costume. 

Adoptable dogs from Shelby Humane will be in the parade and available for meet & greets. 

Rescue groups invited to attend and bring their adoptables.

The Parade will begin on Main Street in Patton Creek and end at Cajun Steamer where the festivities will continue. Mardi Gras "queen" McGee Bacchus and "king" Benji Hanks (both SHS alumni) will lead the parade!

Shelby Humane Society is the only open admission animal shelter in Shelby County – we care for over 5,000 lost, homeless and neglected pets annually.
