McKinney dogs invited to lend a paw to help others

December 7, 2016 by  

Dog owners in McKinney who want to lend a hand to other canines are invited to sign up to take part in an event that will let their pet strut its stuff while helping to raise funds for pets in need.

This will be the 14th year for the Krewe of Barkus, which will see a parade of hundreds of dogs, all dressed in costumes designed to fit into the theme of the event, which is ‘Barkus Gone Bad-A Salute to our Favorite Villains’. In past years, as many as 4,500 members of the public have come out to watch the procession, and according to its organizers, it is hoped that this year will prove to be just as much of a success.

Along with the parade, there will also be an exhibitor area where vendors will have product and information booths set up. In addition to this, there will also be prizes for the best costumes and an assortment of other interactive activities. A print company can be counted upon to provide a range of promotional products that can be sold to help raise money during an event like this. Monies raised throughout the day will be used to help unwanted and abused animals.

The Krewe of Barkus will be held in McKinney’s Mitchell Park on February 25, 2017. More information can be obtained by visiting the event’s Facebook page.
