Celebrate Mardi Gras While Honoring a Good Cause

The Galveston Island Humane Society’s (GIHS) 20th Annual Krewe of Barkus and Meoux Mardi Gras Parade will have its Annual “A Cat’s Eye View” Parade Viewing Party on the balcony of the Trolly Station Building which will allow people to view three family fun parades: The Shriners Hospitals for Children & Sunshine Kids Parade, our Krewe of Barkus & Meoux Parade, and the beloved Children’s Parade following us.

The parade will be led this year by our Paws Gala Elite Pet winner, Nugget, and his favorite human, Kelley Delesandri.

The “A Cat’s Eye View” Balcony Party is set for Sunday, February 11, 2018, is from Noon to 4:00 p.m. Our Barkus & Meoux Parade will begin at Pier 20, travel the strand to Mechanic, and return to Pier 20. Pre-registration for the parade is $20.00 per pet. On-site registration will be $30.00 per pet.

The Parade and Viewing Party are not only fun, but raise money for our community support programs. The success of these projects depends on the support of individuals and businesses who generously contribute. Contact the shelter for details on sponsorship opportunities, 409-740-1919.

Although we provide the utmost luxury at Avery at Deer Park Apartments in Deer Park, Texas, we realize that you need to get out and socialize with those in your surrounding community. This event gives you the chance to do just that! Don’t hesitate to attend today!
