Our Mascot, SnippitOur Mission
  • To have fun while helping our less fortunate furry friends.
  • To reduce the number of unwanted animals through public education about the many benefits of spaying or neutering pets.
  • Involve the community in an effort to achieve this mission.
Our mission helps the many shelters and animal aid organizations in the Acadiana area that are in need of financial help.  Since the first parade rolled around the perimeter of the Acadiana Mall in February of 1999, Krewe des Chiens has had many recipients.  As we look to the future, our goal is to help reduce the rapid growth of the animal population by educating the public about the importance of having pets spayed or neutered.  With your participation and help, we can work towards a healthy animal population.  
Since the first parade for dogs, Krewe des Chiens has raised more than $350,000 in support of our mission.  Krewe des Chiens events include an annual Royalty Raffle where our royal court is selected, nomination of a Parade Grand Marshall, our Mardi Gras Ball, and of course our famous Parade for Dogs!  Please join us!
