Laissez les bon temps rouler! Are you ready to let the good times roll this Mardi Gras season? Here at Cat Haven, we always love to include our furry friends in the festivities of the holidays, including the beloved Louisiana tradition of Mardi Gras. This year, we are hosting our very first Krewe of Kitties Mardi Gras Parade and we want YOUR kitties to be in the Royal Court! Your participation in this contest will not only give you and your purrfect pet a chance to win some amazing prizes, but you will also be donating to our non-profit programming. Cat Haven's mission is to lead Baton Rouge in becoming a "no-kill community" for cats and kittens by providing care, shelter, and adoption services as well as advocating routine spaying and neutering for population control. This is a big task, and we need all the help we can get! So, what do you say? Grab your camera and your feline companion, and throw us somethin' mister!
Voting for your favorites begins on January 12, 2018 at 12:00 PM CST
and each vote is a $1
donation. Your participation helps save lives! All donations go to fund the care of our kitties and the daily operations at Cat Haven Adoption Center.
