5th Annual Santa Paws on Parade


New Bern Now’s Mascot – Boo

Very Important Date – Please make sure you have on your calendar December 17th for our 5th Annual Santa Paws on Parade downtown. We will make a short walk of the downtown block showing our spirit with our four legged friends and family members. Meet at the corner of Craven St. and E. Front Street in the open lot (beside the Chamber and Mitchell Hardware).

– 8:45am: Meet and Greet social with others
– 8:55am: Group Photo with Coastal Pet Portrait by Mona Sadler
– 9:00am: Parade begins up Craven St., turning left onto Pollock St., then Middle St. back to the corner of Craven and Front Sts.

Please help us to share this information on the neighborhood emails, chats, blogs and papers. Last year we had 276 people and pets, let’s try for 350 this year! We would love to have some music this year throughout the group walking. If you have any ideas or could help, please email or call the store 252-637-0247.

Trent River Coffee (across from the lot) will be open for business as well as having a Christmas box for us collecting dog and cat food, treats, and any donated items for Passion for Paws who supports 6 local groups here in Craven County. If you would like to help us help others during the holidays bring an item that morning for the furry families in need.

We certainly do appreciate your continued support in our store! With the economy in the shape it is, we know you must make choices that are best for you and your family and we thank you for including us! Our continued promise will be to stay competitive in pricing with the box stores, online shopping and knowledgeable in the nutritional department, in order to help you make the right choices for your pets health regarding food, treats and grooming.

One last note, we are honored and proud to support the made in America campaign! Our store is approximate 80% MADE in the USA products! Collars, Leashes, Harnesses, Clothes, Frames, Cards, Decorative Pillows, Food, Treats, Chews, Grooming, Training Door Bells, Toys, Magnets, Dog Beds, Cat Scratchers, Cat Nip and Toys, Bandana’s, and More.

To you and your family we wish a very Merry Christmas and Holiday Season. Take time to sniff out the great smells, howl with the family in laughter, and purr with the children in the spirit!
