Enjoy a fun-filled day! 

  • Activities for kids
  • Great music
  • Adoptable dogs

This is also a great time for reunions with other SPR siblings and their mamas! All friendly dogs are welcome but must remain leashed. Hope to see you there!

Join SPR for the 2018 Boston Pride Parade

Dogs MUST be people and dog friendly, ON A LEASH at all times. We will have water for the dogs, and if it gets too hot for the dogs they can rotate in and out of the van.
We will be updating the location and time on Wednesday June 6th.

This is a rain or shine event and the parade route is 2.27 miles, dress accordingly please, layers and comfortable shoes.

This event gets better and better every year, we've have a great turnout and so much fun from setting up the van to handing things out along the parade route, walking with the dogs, dancing to the music. You can't help but pick up on the amazing joy and love from everyone there. This is an experience you will always remember and want to do every year!
