Parade of Paws Goes Virtual

With COVID still looming, downtown events have been cancelled through the end of the year. But the Nassau Humane Society has come up with the perfect alternative to keep the 21 year Parade of Paws tradition going.

So get out the costumes and decorations. Get creative with your backgrounds and themes. And this year you can go as big as you want since you do not have to pull it down Centre Street. Get the whole family involved!

They welcome photos of your pet, but a video of you and your animals “parading” from left to right would be even better. They will put them all together to make the parade come to life. And if they get enough participants, they will do prizes!

You can submit your pictures or video via email to by Wednesday, Dec. 9 so that our Parade Grand Marshal can edit everyone together, and we will “walk” on Saturday, Dec. 12 as planned. Let’s make it another parade to remember!
