Parade of Adoptables Procedures


  • We reserve the right to remove any animal from the parade due to undesirable behavior.
  • Info MUST be typed –hand written will not be accepted.
  • Two animals up for adoption only per organization – no exceptions. Personal animals are not allowed to participate in the parade.
  • All animals in the parade must be people and pet friendly.
  • It will be your responsibility to bring your approved forms with you to the expo in order to participate in the parade. No approved forms, no walking in the parade – no exceptions. I don’t not keep copies of any forms with me but I will have blank ones at The Labrador Connection booth if you need to fill one out.
  • The parade will be held in the Bark Park  and is only an hour long. Both of your rescues will walk together, not separate in order to save time.
  • Forms may be approved the morning before the parade begins. Please bring your form to The Lab Connection booth Q6 and ask for Mary to get your form approved.
