Finally found the link for the CAAWS Krewe of Mutts Parade


(cut and paste the whole thing in one address line)

I finally found the link from the Krewe of Mutts Parade we put on every year through CAAWS, Capital Area Animal Welfare Society.  Frank is president and I am on the board for the last 12 years or so.  The main purpose is to Spay and Neuter as many cats and dogs as we can but we have grown to also provide about 200 adoptions each year in our meager shelter.

We pull from the kill shelters and accept a very very few owner surrenders.  Like the girl who enlisted and her parents said they would not keep her sweet dog.  So she spent a Sunday afternoon the day before she deployed in our yard crying.  And all our volunteers were inside crying too.  I went to pick up the mail and left crying.

In order to do this work we raise money from various sources and the largest one is the CAAWS Krewe of Mutts Parade.  Here is a link to the New Feature from the Sunday night local news.

That is Frank they interviewed!

glen:  I am going to see if pam can send me some of her pictures for the blog as well.  our theme was The Good, The Bad and The Furry.  And we had some great costumes!
