Southern Unity Project Hosts Pet Parade in Support of Webster Animal Shelter
Southern Unity Project (SUP) is partnering with Petco and the Madison Police Department to host a pet parade at Old Trace Park on the Reservoir in Ridgeland, Mississippi, October 10, 2021, in support of Webster Animal Shelter.
"Events like this help raise awareness of issues, like the difference between no-kill and kill shelters, that otherwise might not garner the support needed to maintain a nonprofit organization,"
Attendees are invited to bring their pets dressed in their finest parade attire. After the parade, a quiet zone will be available to allow adoptees to get acquainted with potential adopters and their pets, if applicable.
Live music will be provided by the Patrick Harkins Band, courtesy of Fondren Guitars. There will also be face painting and several local food trucks on site. Your furry friends will have the opportunity to relax in wading pools and will receive complimentary pup cups, hygiene products, and minor grooming services such as nail trimmings provided by PETCO. Other event sponsors include Philter Studio and the Human Rights Campaign.
