Mardi growl brings pets together

JONESBORO, AR - While some are celebrating Mardi Gras, some pets and their owners are celebrating Mardi Growl.  Pups of every shape and size arrived at the Petco in Jonesboro dressed in their best bows and beads.

The event, sponsored by Northeast Arkansans for Animals is designed to bring pets and their owners together with other people and other pets.  Wannda Turner said this is beneficial for everyone involved.

"It is an opportunity for people to come out with their pets, to get their pictures taken, and to socialize and interact," said Wannda Turner.

There were also dogs available for adoption at Petco, something Turner said happens every weekend.
