Vintage Pups and Pinups party benefits CBBR

Summer may be wrapping up, but the party is just getting started for cool pet fundraisers – like Pups and Pinups. For the second straight year, Chicago Party Animals will host this fun cocktail hour that features lots of fun while raising funds for pet rescue – Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue - the oldest bully breed rescue in the Midwest.

“The dog friendly mixer party is inspired by classic vintage pin up photography, and we will have a fun interactive photo booth style set up for guest and their pups,” says Andrea Keirn, owner of Big Bark. “Guests have the opportunity to win their own Vavoom photo shoot as well as some other great prizes.”

Keirn first met Heather Stumpf-Popio of Vavoom Pinups two years ago when she had her own photo shoot. Since both women own their own small businesses and both feel strongly about giving back – especially to animal rescue – an idea was born for a Pups and Pinups Party.

Pups and Pinups will feature raffle prizes from Big Bark – Keirns web business that focuses on the big dog community – and Vavoom. Prizes include free memberships and free photo shoots and more. There will also be a photo booth with props and plenty of room for your well socialized pup to romp off leash. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

Pups and Pinups will be from 6 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, September 10 at Chicago Party Animals at 1133 West Fulton Market. Get your tickets online and follow the event Facebook listing. And check out the slideshow below for a peek at the fun at last year’s Pups and Pinups event.

    Raining Cats and Dogs

    I am a crazy cat lady and puppy mill warrior that blogs to advocate and educate about pet issues. In American animal controls, millions of pets are abandoned each year and an estimated 4 million die just because there are not enough homes. It truly seems like it’s Raining Cats and Dogs.
