Pet Parade and Pageant for
The Cat Network To Be Held At
Cauley Square Historic Railroad Village
Sat. June 13 and Sun. June 14
Cauley Square Historic Railroad Village, 22400 Old
Dixie Highway, Goulds, will host its First Annual ‘Pet Fest’ Pet-Parade & Pet-Pageant on Saturday, June 13th and Sunday, June 14th, 10 am-5 pm each day.
Pageant categories include ‘Most Beautiful’, ‘Most Fashionable’, ‘Most Talented,’ for dogs and cats. Cats will be judged in their carriers/cages
in a special exhibition area.
Cat Network’s unique ‘Meow Mobile’ will be there with cats for adoption. The group, now in its 14th year, has placed over 6,500 cats in adoptive homes and has arranged for an estimated 50,000 spay/neuters.
“We are so excited about hosting this first annual Pet Fest
at Cauley Square,” said Frances Varela, owner and operator
of the historic, 10-acre village with cottage shops, the famous
Tea Room and Village Chalet restaurants, plus lush tropical
gardens open daily, 11 am- 6 pm. Shops are closed on Mondays.
“One of the icons of our historic Village built in 1903 are our animals and birds much like the Hemingway House in Key West,” continued Varela. “People come from all over the world to have their photos
taken with our raccoons, kitty’s and birds.”
