Humane Society’s Mardi Gras Paws in The Park

The 10th annual Mardi Gras Paws in the Park will be held Sunday, February 21st, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Riverfront Park in Historic Cocoa Village. This free family and pet friendly event will include pet contests, the crowning of the "furry" King and Queen of the Park, a Mardi Gras Parade of Pets, a pet psychic, a doggie lure course, a bounce house for the kids, live music, a vendor village, food and much, much more. Friendly, leashed and vaccinated pets are welcomed.

Local businesses, individuals and rescue groups are invited to take part in the event, which is held in conjunction with Cocoa Village Mardi Gras. All rescue groups may participate at "no charge" (pending space availability). Sponsorship opportunities begin at $50 with a variety of opportunities up to $1000. Vendors and rescue groups must supply their own tables, chairs, promotional materials, display racks and setup staff. The event benefits homeless animals in Brevard.

Located in Brevard, the Humane Society is a "no kill for space" facility and a self-sustaining organization that does not receive support from tax dollars. All of their funding comes through donations, adoption fees, product sales, their Molly Mutt Thrift Shops, fundraisers and other pet related services.
