Place Your Perry 200 Parade T-shirt Order Now!


Therapy Dogs United is excited to build a float for the PERRY 200 Grand Patriotic Parade being celebrated on Saturday, May 25th in downtown Erie. For the past three months, our Float Committee has worked tirelessly to design a float that will be a promising entry in the parade.

We’ve got the expertise needed to construct the float, but we still need your help.

This week we firmed up the design for our parade t-shirts, however, in order to create the impact we need to showcase our agency’s mission ~ we need YOU!

How can you be a part of this historic and fun event? We need a minimum of 75 volunteers to walk in this parade. We’d like 25 of those walkers to be a certified therapy dog handlers walking with your dog. For the additional 50 walkers, please invite your family and friends to join us and hand out candy. All volunteers walking with your dog are required to purchase a TDU/Perry Parade t-shirt for $20.00. T-shirt orders and payment needs to be received no later than April 15th (please Email your t-shirt size to: Family and friends walking without a therapy dog are asked to wear a red, white, or blue shirt – or they can purchase a t-shirt if desired! We will also provide a TDU pocket apron for those volunteers.

Your support is much appreciated! And, it’s not too late to donate a Lowes or Home Depot gift card to help with our construction costs. Therapy Dogs United is built on the reputation of outstanding individuals dedicated to volunteerism in support of canine therapy, and I thank you all who continue make our mission come to life. Please support this event with the passion I know we all have!
Much appreciated,
