Pet Haven Fall Benefit a huge success!

Many, many thanks to everyone who made our second annual Fall Benefit a huge success. We are still tallying how much we raised (all of which will go directly to our adoption program and spay/neuter initiatives) -- preliminary numbers are looking terrific! It is because of the generous support of donors that we are able to continue the work we do of rescuing and re-homing dogs and cats.

A special thanks to our sponsors and to Lulu and Luigi for presenting our pet fashion show featuring 15 dogs and 6 cats!! The fashion show opened with Bubba (a Pet Haven alum) who looked dashing in his tuxedo complete with a top hat and tails. Bubba was walked with a black leather collar studded with Swarovski crystals a stunning matching leash.

The grand finale was Ode who looked dazzling in her Red Velvet dress embellished with sequins and a big organza bow at the waist! Ode was a show-stopper! Her platinum collar and Leash added glitz and glamour to her red evening gown.

Be sure to also check out our cat blog for more on info on the Fall Benefit! Our cats were also a big hit with our fashion show emcee Staci Matthews (of KS95) giving all the kitties a kiss before they made their fashion show debut!
