Come watch adorable (and adoptable) dogs walk on the runway this weekend at Rescue the Runway. This posh, pet-friendly event supports Mr. Bones & Co. as well as New York’s local shelters and rescue groups. It has gained national recognition since its inception and is also held in Boston and Chicago. Rescue the Runway combines the participating animal-rescue organizations and showcases their efforts to extinguish pet homelessness, neglect and abuse. In order to promote pet adoption, the event features a representative from each of the organizations, walking down the runway with two dogs that are currently up for adoption. The runway show helps give the companies exposures and gives the dogs a chance at finding new home. There is also a raffle for prizes, a silent auction and even a pitbull kissing photo booth!
Along with the fashionable doggies; guests can also enjoy unlimited beer, wine and delicious German-inspired food from event host, Houston Hall, Manhattan’s largest indoor beer garden. Between the valiant cause, the fun and furry runway and the delicious accompaniments, there is so much to enjoy at this upcoming event.
