CAAWS Mystic Krewe of Mutts Parade

The CAAWS Mystic Krewe of Mutts provides a fun filled way to spend an unforgettable day with your dogs “Mardi Gras style” while enjoying activities and parading them in what has become one of Baton Rouge's most beloved family events. The parade is the largest fund-raiser for CAAWS and raises much needed funds for CAAWS homeless animal care, Community Outreach, Humane Education and Spay/Neuter Programs, and for the CAAWS Shelter to keep our adoptable animals safe and comfortable. Dogs are allowed to watch the parade on the sidelines, but it is not as much fun as being in the parade! Join the Krewe for the only Mardi Gras parade that allows dogs and their families to stroll up and down North Blvd. So gather your friends, dress-up you and your pooch, decorate a pet-sized float, and “party on” for a good CAAWS! Don’t forget to enter the contests for Best Costume, Best Float, and Best Group Theme to win prizes! Make this another successful year for animals in our community!

The Annual Mystic Krewe of Mutts Parade is coming up in February and if you are a vendor or rescue and would like to inquire about participating by having a booth please email Patrick at for further details.
