I recently attended the 3rd annual fundraiser for Paws for the Cause. This is an organization that raises money for different animal welfare groups and a scholarship, called The Chloe Award, for a veterinary student at the University of Guelph.
The Central Toronto Veterinary Referral Clinic was the chosen benefactor this year. Paws for the Cause will be working with them to cover a portion of surgery costs for pet owners who cannot afford the expense.
The first part of the evening featured jeweled, dyed and tattooed dogs strutting their stuff down the runway (don’t worry it was all non-toxic!)
Cameras were flashing like it was Fashion Week but, for the most part, the dogs seemed to enjoy all of the attention.
The second part of the event was the first international solo exhibit for Maddie the Coonhound and Theron Humphrey. I had never heard of this dog before but she has over 100,000 Instagram followers! She will pose with just about anything and has even been featured on The Ellen Show!
