The team won second place for best float. Advocate story Comments The Krewe of Mutts parade theme, “Semper Fideaux,” prompted people and pets alike to don an abundance of military apparel such as the kind advertised by many contest winners. This year’s parade honored soldiers and served as one of CAAWS largest annual fundraisers, said Presedo, a Blue Star Mother of Louisiana with a son in the U.S. Army who spent nine years in Iraq. Many local and some national organizations set up tents and were selling dog treats, people food and other assorted goodies, mostly to raise awareness and money for dog adoption and foster efforts.
