Paws on Parade taking place Saturday

By  | 

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Roxanne Bowen from the Bangor Humane Society is in the TV5 studio this morning to present this week's Pet of the Week, Chloe.

Chloe is a 7-and-a-half year old English Bulldog.

She is a spayed female. She can be somewhat nervous about meeting new people, so she would love a quiet household. She has shown us that she does not enjoy other dogs company, so would do best in a home without other dogs.

She has lived with cats as long as they are dog-savvy. Give them time to adjust to each other and they will be friends.

We are looking for kids above twelve, as she is a big girl and likes her personal space.

Her adoption fee is $100, and she is ready to go today.

Coming up on Saturday is the 25th annual Paws on Parade event in the parking lot of the Bangor Waterfront.

In celebration of our 25th Event Anniversary and in the spirit of friendly competition, we are "unleashing" last year's top fundraising team captains into the community to help us reach the biggest event goal in our history- $100,000 to save more lives!

This year when you start a team or register the event as an individual you will be asked to select a Pack to join- The Match-Made Pack or The Second Chance Pack. Our packs are competing on both dollars raised and number of teams and individuals who join their Pack. Click on their Pack name to hear from our 2018 Pack Leaders appeal to why you should join their pack.

This year, not only do you have a chance to help your Pack win, but you also have a chance to de-throne last year's top fundraising captains and secure a spot as next year's Pack leaders.

We are excited to have you celebrate our 25th Paws on Parade, an event that has become an annual tradition of saving lives.

Thank you in advance for joining us to help homeless pets in our community.

Our Paws on Parade event features a variety of sponsors, vendors, and highlights such as a pet costume contest and shelter dog runway show.

Every year, hundreds of walkers gathered in celebration of their own pets to help raise instrumental funds to support the homeless pets who find refuge at the Bangor Humane Society, while they await their new forever homes.

The Bangor Humane Society is located at 693 Mt. Hope Avenue in Bangor and their hours are noon to 6 p.m.
