Save the Date for Regal Bank’s Annual Dog 'Pawrade' in Livingston


LIVINGSTON, NJ – Regal Bank will put the “fun” in fundraiser when it hosts its ninth annual Livingston Dog Pawrade on Sunday, Sept. 17 beginning at noon.

The community event will be staged in the parking lot of Regal Bank, located at 570 West Mt. Pleasant Ave. in Livingston. To avoid delays, participants are asked to arrive early to register their dogs if they are not already pre-registered at a Regal Bank branch.

According to Regal Bank, the Dog Pawrade is popular with animal lovers of all ages and offers family-friendly entertainment. Pet owners are encouraged to bring well-socialized dogs to show off their best Halloween costume and compete for prizes.

Prizes will be awarded for largest dog, smallest dog and best costume. The winners receive trophies and all of the dogs go home with a goody bag.

All proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Livingston Animal Shelter committee to help upgrade the facility and provide supplies for the sheltered animals. Additionally, families can meet pets that are available for adoption at the event, thanks to the committee and local adoption agencies.

Eastman Companies will be the host photographer for the day. The event will also showcase local vendors and a photo booth to capture the memories.

“Once again, we thank Regal Bank for their generosity in supporting our shelter and our animals,” said Gerriann Petrullo. “We need public support in order to give these animals a safe place to live and be cared for while we help to find them new, permanent homes.”

The Livingston Dog Pawrade is organized and led by Christina Slater, vice-president and regional manager of Regal Bank. She created the Dog Pawrade to raise proceeds for shelters within the community.

“We’re thrilled to bring back the Livingston Dog Pawrade for its ninth year,” Slater said. “We welcome local dog owners to take part in the fun and be part of this life-saving initiative for animals that desperately need our help. And it’s a great time.”

Participants can pre-register at any Regal Bank branch location. The cost to pre-register is $10 and any additional dogs within the same family can be registered for just $1 each. Those unable to pre-register can do so on the day of the event for $15. For more information, call 973-577-7161 or 973-577-7160.
