Krewe of Mutts paws through downtown
Hundreds of dogs took to the streets Sunday afternoon as part of the Krewe of Mutts. This year's theme "2010 A Space Paw-dessey: We Come for Treats," brought out some interesting costumes. Dogs and owners dressed up as aliens, and celestial bodies to impress the crowds. The event raised money and awareness for pets in need of a home.
"I think it's great for the people to be able to get out bring their pets," said Richard Sommers with his dog Bodacious. "Some people don't have pets so it gives them the opportunity to adopt pets and everybody just has a good time."
In its eleventh year the parade raised about $15,000 for CAAWS.
