Volunteer at the Krewe of Barkus Parade

Going to the Krewe of Barkus parade this weekend? Did you know you can volunteer and help the Humane Society of Louisiana raise needed funds? The Barkus parade is made possible through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers who set up the park, staff booths and act as Krewe Marshalls in the parade. Local rescue groups and animal protection charities are awarded proceeds from the parade, based on the number of volunteers from their organization who help out on parade day.

Want to help the Humane Society of Louisiana by volunteering? Work a shift and let Barkus know you're there representing our charity.

Shifts available: 8am-12noon setup & check-in; 10-2pm booth manning; 1pm-5pm booth manning and krewe marshalls. If you can volunteer, please RSVP and let us know what shift you can work, and we'll send you more details. Barkus asks that Volunteers do not bring their dogs while working the event. They are firm believers that if your pet is with you, even if leashed and well-behaved, they deserve your full attention. If you volunteer for Barkus, they would like to have your full attention during your shift period.

    It's not a hard job. Just show up, check in, give credit to HSLA, they get support, and we get to walk in the parade and look authoritative. Olive and I had a great time. We even liked the rain.

    Olive and I would like to volunteer the 1-5 shift. She will be in one of those wear-your-baby things so I won't have a stroller to mind. I hope we can be of service! I've marshalled in the parade 2 or 3 times now and I know we can do that together and help with getting donations at the booth.

      Thanks, Carrie - I'm sure it would be fine for you to work with Olive. Will be back in touch with more details.
