The Humane Society of Louisiana is excited to announce our inaugural 'Lakeside Mall Strut for Pups, Presented by First Bank and Trust'! The pledge walk is open to students, youth, other individuals and businesses. All proceeds will help the Humane Society save the lives of thousands of dogs in need.
Pre-register at http://lakesidemallstrutforpups.eventbrite.com/, or register at Lakeside Mall at 10am on August 16th. Each participant must submit a minimum donation of $25 when registering. However, the more you donate, the more you shall receive! A level 1 - $25 ticket gets you a 'Barkitecture' logo koozie, a level 2 - $50 ticket gets you a koozie and a 'Barkitecture' logo t-shirt, and a level 3 - $100 ticket gets you a koozie, t-shirt, and 'Barkitecture' logo bag! (See 'Barkitecture' logo below). We will have koozies ready for you during registration, and take your shirt size and mailing address (if applicable) to order your shirt after the event. We will also mail your logo bag (if applicable) post event.
Please arrive at Lakeside Mall between 10-10:45am on August 16th to check in and receive your goods at our Humane registration table. We will be located at Center Court i.e. the Veteran's Skylight, which is also where doghouses entered into our ‘Barkitecture Competition’ will be stationed. See map below. We start the strut at 11am from the Skylight! Participants can bring friendly, leashed dogs to accompany them on the Strut. Our route includes a walk around the mall's interior, led by 3 local celebrity marchers who will announce when it is time to start. We will finish back at the Veteran’s Skylight, where the 'Barkitecture Competition' judging takes place at noon!

Also, we encourage participants to form teams! To join Jeff Dorson's team, be sure to join 'Krewe de Rescue' when registering on Eventbrite or note that you'd like to join on your paper registration form.
Email [masked] if you are interested in being a sponsor, setting up an information booth at this event, or have any questions.
Finally, be sure to allow for time post-Strut and judging to meet our adoptable pups (pictured below) and visit local animal groups with information booths!
We hope to see you (and possibly your pup) there!
