South Padre Parade
Due to the poor weather the area experienced this past Saturday, the 14th Annual Isle Ditter Dog Fundraiser has been rescheduled for this coming Saturday, March 3 at Louie’s Backyard on South Padre Island.
The event is slated to take place between 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the efforts of The Friends of Animal Rescue and the Laguna Madre Humane Society. Officially entitled the 14th Annual Isle Ditter Dog Pirates, Captains and Sailors, the event will feature a canine costume contest, games for kids and adults, fun furry friends, doggie-owner look-alike contest, dog/cat mask making contest for the kids, raffles, a talent contest for the dogs and a pooch parade.
More details and entry forms are available at Wags, Whiskers ‘n’ Things, Island Native Surf House, Christ Harbor Church and Yummies. Participants can also register at the door.
According to Beth Fedigan of the LMHS, the LMHS and the Friends of Animal Rescue teamed up for the event. “We have joined up for this event to aid the animals that are in dire need in our community. The fact that we have both gone through growing pains during the past year, both groups realized that the main importance both groups share is the welfare of the animals in our area that are in need. Basically we are all working together even though we are separate in names,” she said.
