October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Nearly half of all domestic abuse victims delay leaving because they don’t want
to leave their pet behind, yet as few as 10% of domestic violence shelters accept pets.
The Purple Leash Project is working to change that.

The 27th Annual Purina Pet Parade is St. Louis’s largest annual pet event. The parade travels through historic Soulard, featuring pets dressed in their best Mardi Gras attire.

Thanks for Attending this Year’s Pet Parade!

Thanks for Making the Purina Pet Parade Such a Fun Event

Not only was this year’s Purina Pet Parade a fun time for all, but 100 percent of the registration fees went directly to Open Door Animal Sanctuary, one of the largest pet shelters in the greater St. Louis area.
