Last Call for Pawdi Gras Sponsorships

Local Pulse is honored to be on the Pawdi Gras sponsorship team this year with so many other like minded, dog-loving small businesses in Pensacola. WolfGang LLC business owners Jessica and Kim Wolford’s unconditional love for every dog in Escambia County paired with our own passion to help pups in our community is one of the many reasons why we got involved this year.

Beyond the dogs, we believe in supporting an event that consciously promotes and advocates for small businesses in our community. As a small business themself, WolfGang knows the impact that the exposure from an event this size can have.

January 28, 2024 will be the third annual Pensacola Pawdi Gras event. During the Ist and 2nd Pawdi Gras they worked with over 20 local businesses to safely shut down the roads and created an atmosphere that was dog and family friendly. Even more impressive, the event generated over $50,000 to the local economy each year. With over 4,000 attendees and 500 dogs in the parade last year, we are hoping to surpass these numbers in 2024.

The event will feature a Mardi Gras parade in which dog owners are invited to bring their pooch and march through the downtown streets in colorful costumes. K-9 units and local law enforcement will lead the pup-themed parade serving as the grand marshals. Other event festivities include dog costume contests, raffles, games, live music and a variety of local food and beverage vendors.

This year’s benefactor will be the Escambia County Department of Animal Welfare. The Escambia County Department of Animal Welfare consists of the Animal Welfare and Adoption Center and the Animal Welfare Enforcement division. Animal Welfare works in partnership with the community to create a safe, healthy and caring environment for both citizens and animals. The division promotes citizen safety, responsible pet ownership and education in the reduction of animal overpopulation. They currently house over 100 shelter dogs and over 30 cats and will be on-site with pet adoptions and a variety of other pup-centered services.
