PAWS Pet Parade
Pets from around northeast Louisiana strutted their stuff on Trenton Street in West Monroe February
15, as part of the 8th Annual Krewe of PAWS Pet Parade. The annual event has become one of the most
popular pet-centric events in the region and is organized annually to raise money for PAWS of Northeast
“We raised over $16,000 this year,” said PAWS Marketing Director Julie Lewis. The money raised will be
used in the four core programs of PAWS, including their two most expensive initiatives: the low-cost
spay/neuter program and the animal shelter rescue program.
Last year, the shelter rescue program saved 122 dogs from Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter. Those animals
could have faced euthanasia without the program.
