Coronado Pet Yearbook


The Coronado Pet Yearbook for 2016 is a part of the 2016 Coronado Pet Parade that benefits PAWS of Coronado. The Yearbook will be available at the 2016 Pet Parade and subsequently for distribution and pickup at local real estate offices. All proceeds from the yearbook will go directly to PAWS of Coronado in support of their mission of providing care and medical services to the stray, abandoned and relinquished animals of Coronado, and in addition finding them forever homes throughout our communities.

Each yearbook listing will feature a photo of the pet, the pet’s name/type/breed, a brief history/funny facts about the pet, and the owners name. Each listing will take up a 1/4 page in The Yearbook.

The Coronado Real Estate Association (the organization that sponsors and operates the Pet Parade) feels that The Yearbook will be a fun way to show off some of Coronado’s most well known pets, while benefiting a deserving cause. Please take a moment to fill out the form below. Each pet listing is a $25 donation, the form will ask for payment after your submission. Thanks for your support, and we look forward to seeing your pet in the Yearbook!
