The older you get, the better you get, unless you’re a banana

Kathryn Ravenscraft, Director of Development for Bangor Humane Society says

Who doesn’t love the Golden Girls? We think folks are going to have a lot of fun this year, and so will the dogs!

There will be prizes for best Golden Girls costumes. For dogs. And for people.

Also many other raffle prizes.



And oh those Golden girls

It’s a party. It’s a giant dog walk to support the mission of humane treatment and adoption of companion animals in our communities.

Dog walking is always a breath of fresh air that makes life so much more enjoyable, but this is more than just that.

Kathryn reminds us

Paws on Parade has historically been our largest community fundraiser, and one we know people always look forward to. What could be better than attending a giant dog party to benefit other dogs… and cats and rabbits and Guinea pigs?
