WEST MONROE, La. — (4/28/19) Animal lovers united in Kiroli Park for the Strut Your Mutt event to support fundraising efforts to build a new animal shelter in Ouachita Parish.
“The old one is over 50 years old. It is run down and beyond repair at this point, and we are trying to build a new shelter and get state of the art drainage and what the pets need,” said SOS Pets of Ouachita board member John McClendon.
Dogs of all different shapes and sizes attended the family friendly event Saturday morning to strut their stuff. Each participant was awarded their own gold medal.
