Margaritaville Resort Casino proudly declares September “Paws In Paradise Month”! Paws In Paradise is designed to bring awareness to the numerous rescue and shelter organizations in the Shreveport-Bossier community, raise money for those organizations, and offer a fun alternative opportunity to place pets in loving homes.

Paws In Paradise will launch with a “Most Photogenic Pet” contest on the Margaritaville Facebook page. Enter your animal to win a $250 gift certificate to PetSmart. Beginning September 1, a $25,000 Slot Tournament will be held every Thursday in September, with buy-in donations given to area animal rescues.
