Not only can you help area animal shelters this Sunday, January 21, 2018 at Rotolo's on E. 70th in Shreveport from 12-3pm, you can help support all of the philanthropic efforts of the Krewe of Barkus and Meoux!

The true 'royalty' for the Krewe of Barkus and Meoux are the animals and you can register your fur baby to reign over the Pet Parade this year with the Pet Royalty Raffle. For $1.00 per vote, your pet could be the 2018 King, Queen, Duke or Duchess of the Krewe of Barkus and Meoux! Make sure to get your friends and family to come out and pull together to help your fur baby win. Stuffing the ballot box is highly encouraged!

At this point, I'd like to make a shameless plug to get you to come out and vote for our newest family member, Cajun! We adopted him in early November 2017 and already can't imagine life without him! He's a true example of a gentle giant! Plus, I'm all about raising money to help our local fur babies!

Just remember that every dollar raised goes to support Barkus and Meoux's mission: to develop, foster and promote programs to benefit all animals, as well as promote responsible pet ownership. This is achieved through programs which include: emergency vet assistance, supporting area shelters and rescues, their feral cat program, their spay and neuter program and assistance with the Barksdale Air Force Base Retired K9 Fund.
