Dog Day Afternoon, Metairie, LA, March 21, 2010

The LA/SPCA’s 28th annual Dog Day Afternoon is one of the oldest dog/fun walk-a-thons in the United States and an original Louisiana event. It provides the perfect festive setting to celebrate our canine companions and make them feel like royalty.

The day highlight is a dog/fun walk-a-thon in New Orleans City Park.

This year Lucy Bustamante/WWL TV and Catherine Shreves/ABC 26 head the celebrity-emceed festivities that continue all day with live music from Groovy 7 and DJ Afrodisiak, foods and specialty drinks from great local restaurants, animal vendors and artists, dog obedience demos, Raising Cane’s sponsored dog contests and great prizes!

When: 11am-4pm (registration begins at 10:30am), March 21, 2010

Where: Roosevelt Mall at New Orleans City Park [map]

For a Paws Cause: The event, which is  attended by over 2,000 family and canine members, generates 5 percent of the annual operating budget of the LA/SPCA.
