Ok, I've put a lot of thought into this one. It would take a bit of effort but would be totally the highlight of the parade. You would need 5 large pieces of plexi-glass, drill holes (about 1") all around it(at least 10 in each panel), you would need to make a box out of them (they would have to be melted together and of course would not have a bottom (it would fit over their decorated small cages that would be sitting on a "stage" under the plexi-glass. This would simulate a storefront and you could even make a storefront scene. Have children kneeling outside the "window" looking in at them and a few parents. decorate the float to simulate a street(something like you would see on a Norman Rockwell print) have a spot light shining down on the animals (simulate this with a streetlight or simply use a spotlight attached to your "storefront" use snow outside on the street.
What about making a dog and a kitty with santa or elf hats on, holding Lanterns in their mouths?
You can put signs saying "merry christmas" and "please adopt us" if you want.
Maybe a "Please donate" someplace.
Best christmas gift I ever got lasted me 22 years... My Cat Eloise.
How about having dogs and cats dressed up in "holiday" garb/trims, and have spotlights shining on them? Maybe with an "Adopt Me!" sign under them? (Easier said than done...)
