Cute puppy models walked the runway for the annual Paws for the Cause gala and fashion show
In support of the Ontario Veterinary College’s Pet Trust Fund (a charity not for snooty Forest Hill trust-fund puppies, but dedicated to advancing the health and wellbeing of companion animals), Paws For the Cause hosted their second annual fundraiser at Airship 37 near the Distillery District last night. The fundraiser included a fashion show, where models like eTalk’s Tanya Kim, Flare’s Mosha Lundström-Halbert, Degrassi stars Alicia Josipovic and Luke Bilyk, the Harbord Room’s Cory Vitiello, NKPR owner Natasha Koifman, actor Meghan Heffern and MTV’s Aliya-Jasmine Sovani wore Philip Sparks clothing and walked dog models that sported designs by Babies and Beasts. Some complaints of dogism were heard as partygoers joked that there were too many French bulldogs and not enough larger pups (of the 10 doggies, six were French bulldogs); we assume French bulldogs are a breed that actually puts up with being trotted out in dog clothes. Guests munched on treats supplied by Pusateri’s (without reservations about their recent shutdown), including satays served in dog bowls (we like a party that sticks with a theme). Up today’s “awww” factor with our puppy slideshow after the jump.
