It’s time to step out with your best friend!
Please join The Neighborhood Association of Back Bay for a morning dedicated to celebrating and showing off Man's (and let's not forget Women and children's) best friend - our beloved dogs! The Neighborhood Association of Back Bay is bringing back the tradition of the Commonwealth Mall Pooch Parade. They are also pleased to announce that the eminent veterinarian, Dr. Jake Tedaldi of Vetcall will be leading the proceedings.
They are looking to simplify things this year. There will be no pre-registration by mail. Registration will begin at 9 am at the Garrison Statue on the corner of Dartmouth and Commonwealth, across the street from the Vendome. The cost to register will be $10 in cash only, plus the optional cost of raffle tickets which are $5 a piece.. If possible, please bring exact change. All dogs must be up to date on shots, and please keep any dog in heat at home. Each participating dog will receive a complimentary bandana plus other surprises. Thanks to the generosity of our commercial neighbors, they hope to have lots of goodies to raffle off. All proceeds will be divided between Buddy Dog Humane Society, a non-profit, no-kill shelter in Massachusetts and the Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine which is doing significant research in the area of canine medicine.
The parade will begin at 10 am and everyone will proudly march their pooches to Clarendon Street and back to the originating spot where they will hold the raffle. Let's introduce our canine-less neighbors to the wonders of dogs of all sizes and varieties -- and most importantly -- show them that dogs can be good neighbors and good citizens!
They look forward to seeing you there. If you have any questions please email email@example.com. They are also looking for volunteers, so if you can help out, please let them know.
