Rescue the Runway: Rescue is the New Black |

22 May

We’re eating Stella & Chewy’s treats while writing this post. Our Rescue the Runway goody bag last night had lots of cool items including our fave, Stella & Chewy’s! Was the second annual runway event as good as the first? It was even better!

Barking beauties, BarkBox, Badass rescue groups, and delicious bites — we loved the second annual Mr. Bones & Co. Rescue the Runway fashion show and dog adoption benefit! Held at 91 in the West Village, the event featured adoptable dogs, a runway show, a doggy kissing booth (with a pup named Cubby from Thank Dog Rescue), a BarkBox gifting station, and a great silent auction. Runway escorts included fashion designer, John Bartlett, BarkBox CEO, Matt Meeker, and Erin O’Sullivan from Susie’s Senior Dogs. But we have to admit that we only had eyes for the pups! From a tiny Chihuahua to a beautiful old-soul Siberian Husky, ten four-legged models made their runway debuts and captivated the audience with cuteness and personality. Some of the pups received multiple adoption applications — we hope they all find forever homes! Rescue groups and shelters included Animal Haven, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, and Husky House.

Of course there was the requisite tearjerker video. This one showed Mr. Bones & Co. in action with dog rescue success stories from Iraq to the Bahamas to the U.S. Wishing them much success with their future rescue missions, too! If you’re looking for ways to volunteer with your pup, check out some of these ideas.
