Sat, February 18, 2017 @11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

FAIRHOPE, Ala. – There is a place where you can go this Mardi Gras season and celebrate your favorite sport with your two-legged and four-legged best friends, all supporting a good cause.
The Haven, a no-kill nonprofit animal shelter that guarantees a loving home for homeless cats and dogs is hosting their 14th annual Mystic Mutts of Revelry pet parade presented by McSharry’s Irish Pub on Saturday, February 18, 2017. This year’s theme for the parade is all about sports.

“We have a superb group of individuals who volunteer their time to make this event possible. The dedication these volunteers have is moving and we are hoping to score big with this fundraiser,” said Joline Beedy, chairperson of MMOR 2017.
The event would not be a real Mardi Gras parade without Royalty. This year, individuals who pre-register online to walk in the parade will be able to take a chance to have their “mutt” chosen as part of MMOR 2017 Royalty. For a donation of $5 per entry, your furry pet may be selected from the drawing to be part of the Royal Court. The winners will be notified on February 17, 2017 and will have the opportunity to ride on the official MMOR Royal float with their pet after being introduced to the crowd.
Walkers can choose to wait and sign up the day of the parade at the hospitality tent from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. located inside the park. Pre-registration and same day registration fees are the same. Pre-registration and same day Registration fee’s are $10 per well-behaved, leashed and currently vaccinated dog and $10 per human escort age 6 years or older.
“This is our 14th year hosting this important lifesaving fundraiser for our nonprofit. The funds raised from this family-friendly parade will directly benefit the homeless cats and dogs and provide us with the resources we need to end pet homelessness in Baldwin County,” said Michael Graham, executive director of The Haven.
“In 2016, we saved over 721 homeless cats and dogs providing them with love, medical care, and a loving home,” he said, “and we need everyone to come out and support this fundraiser so we can save even more.”
The parade will roll at 1:00 p.m. beginning on Morphy Ave. The official pre-pawty will be begin at 11: 00 a.m. inside the park. There will be food and fun activities for all, and music will be provided by Grayson Capps.
