Mardi Paws Parade

Sophie leads the Mardi Paws Parade.

Helen Woodward Animal Center debuted its Mardi Paws Parade on Feb. 12. The free event connected center adoptables, alumni and revelers of all ages, breeds and creeds on “Bour-bone Street” down in “Cat-on Rouge.”

Participants dressed their pooches in Mardi Gras-themed costumes and paraded their own “floats” (created from small wagons or pet strollers) around the center grounds.
