Join Kaxan Saturday for first annual Mardi Paws!





This year is Grocery Pup’s first annual Mardi Gras parade for dogs and dog lovers in Austin, TX. The theme this year is “Saturday Bark Fever” so dogs and humans are encouraged to dress disco style. Grocery Pup designed Mardi Paws to raise money for Austin Dog Rescue and Cutie PITooties Pit Bull Rescue.

Our king dog, Sebastian, is a recently adopted shelter dog from Cutie PITooties Pitbull rescue. When he was first in foster care he had terrible skin mange and in need of some serious TLC. Since then he’s been adopted and has had a full recovery. Without a doubt, he’s now one of Austin’s most handsome and happiest pups.

Our original queen, Lil’ Kim, was rescued by Austin Dog Rescue in November from a shelter in Lockhart, and after multiple surgeries, she was close to being ready to be adopted. After appearing to be on the road to recovery, she developed a type of neurological disorder about a week ago, and her condition steadily worsened despite several visits to her veterinarian and the emergency room. With her passing on January 21, her furry foster brother and fellow Austin Dog Rescue pup, Kaxan, will ride in her honor as the Duke of Mardi Paws.

All funds raised for the event will be split 50/50 among the two organizations that rescued the king, queen and duke.

Come out and party with us while doing tremendous good for dogs on Feb 10th. We’ll parade dogs around in floats, celebrate the king and queen, have lots of boozy libations, and raise money so Cutie PITooties and Austin Dog Rescue can save more dogs like Sebastian and Lil’ Kim.
