Dogs (and peeps) hit the catwalk for Safe Humane Chicago
Youth leaders from Lindblom will be part of the event.

Some very special dogs will be walking the red carpet before hitting the catwalk to support Safe Humane Chicago tomorrow night. Save Humane Chicago’s Court Case dogs, volunteers’ dogs and various other folks will be strutting their stuff for Cashmere and Canines at Y.E.S. Bloomingdale’s (fifth floor) in Chicago.

The show will be from 6 to 8 p.m. with the store’s outstanding cashmere collection sharing the spotlight with the dogs. The store will be donated 10 percent of pretax sales to Safe Humane Chicago’s various programs.

“The holidays are a time of year when people come together,” says Safe Humane Chicago’s Executive Director and Founder Cynthia Bathurst, “and I am delighted that Bloomingdale’s is supporting the mission and efforts of Safe Humane Chicago. A fashion show is such a fun way to celebrate safe, humane communities and our partnership.”

Safe Humane Chicago works throughout the Chicago area to create safer, more humane communities by inspiring positive relationships between people and animals. Through education, advocacy and second chances, Safe Humane Chicago focuses on youth leadership, collaboration with the criminal justice system and helping at-risk dogs and youth in at-risk communities.

The goal of the Bloomingdale’s “Cashmere and Canines” events is to help raise needed funds for Safe Humane Chicago, generate awareness, celebrate partnerships, and showcase the dogs and youth for whom our programs advocate.

    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.
