Mardi Gras Wags & Whiskers, previously known as Mardi Paws, is an event that was started by one of our board members several years ago in a local bar. This event has received amazing support from people like you, and we have since grown it tremendously.
Mardi Gras Wags & Whiskers now features live music from CJ Parker and the XII, a silent auction, creole inspired appetizers, a decked out photo booth, and more. By coming to our event, not only will you be supporting the lost and homeless pets in our community, but you'll also have a great time!
Get your tickets today to show your support and have an eventful night.
About Us: The Humane Society of Scott County helps animals in need by providing shelter, adoption services, and support resources for our community with care and compassion. We don't just care for the lost and homeless pets in our community, but the people who own them too. Our priority is reuniting pets with their families and providing resources to those facing challenges when possible.
And a HUGE thank you to the sponsors who have made this event possible!
A special thanks to Richard Coussens & The Coussens Foundation for sponsoring the cost of the venue as well as a $2,000 matching donation. That means up to $2,000 spent during the event on things like our silent auction and raffle will be matched by Richard Coussens and the Coussens Foundation!
