Join Us to March Against Petland






Calling all animal lovers and paw-some pals! Get ready to wag your tail, strut your stuff, and make a paw-sitive impact at the world's largest pet parade: the Purina Pet Parade in St. Louis! We're teaming up with START – St. Louis Animal Rights Team to celebrate our furry friends while advocating for their well-being.

More than just a parade, this is a movement. We'll be sharing valuable information about:

  • The issues surrounding pet stores like Petland: Raising awareness about unethical breeding practices and the importance of supporting shelters and rescues.


Together, we can make a difference in the lives of animals! Let's educate, advocate, and celebrate our four-legged companions, all while enjoying a day of fun and festivities.


Here's how you can join the pack:

  • Register for the parade: A $10 suggested donation supports Open Door Animal Sanctuary, providing a safe haven for animals in need. Registered START and Bailing Out Benji volunteers can join for free!

  • Dress up your furry friend: Get creative with costumes and celebrate your pet's unique personality. 

  • Spread the word: Share this post, invite your friends and family, and let's make this the biggest and most impactful Purina Pet Parade yet!

Use the hashtags #SayNoToPetland, #AdoptDontShop, #PetParade, #ResponsiblePetOwnership, #EducateAgainstPetStores, and #BoycottPetland to amplify the message and show your support!


This is more than just a parade; it's a chance to stand up for animal rights, promote responsible pet ownership, and create a brighter future for our furry friends. Let's join paws and make a difference, one wag at a time!


Don't forget to mark your calendars! The Purina Pet Parade takes place on February 4, 2024 in Soulard. More info: https://stlmardigras.org/events/purina-pet-parade



Remember, every paw print counts. Let's make this a paw-some event to remember!

Registered START and Bailing Out Benji volunteers fees will be covered.
