Rescue the Runway: Featuring Boston's Finest Supporting Pet Adoption

This Sunday we are so excited to be attending the first annual Rescue the Runway. It's a one-of-a-kind fashion show where some of Boston's notables will be strutting their stuff down the runway with an adoptable pet to benefit Boston Animal Shelters.

As huge Boston sports fans we can't wait to catch a glimpse of Mike Napoli of the Boston Red Sox, former Bruin's player Shawn Thornton, former Patriot's player Jarvis Green and Kelyn Rowe of the New England Revolution strolling down the catwalk with an adoptable dog. 
This event will take place at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston and is hosted by animal welfare group Audrey's Rescue Angels and Durty Harry's Doggie Boutique & Spa with 100% of the profits to benefit the PAWS New England, Lucky Lab Rescue, Last Hope K9 Rescue and the MSPCA.
The night will include a silent auction featuring some amazing items such as, sports memorabilia, 4 star hotel overnights, dog treats/ products and yoga sessions just to name a few.

If any of our local friends would like to attend head on over to Eventbrite, the VIP tickets are sold out and there are a limited number of general admission tickets left so don't wait. It's sure to be a fabulous night of adorable dogs, Boston celebrities, cocktails, food, music and more!

We are so happy to see Wellness Pet Food is a sponsor, we are big fans!!
