Royalty & Rescues NYC Pet Fashi ...

by Nancy E. Hassel, LIPetPlace.com

The annual New York Pet Fashion Show took place at the Hotel Pennsylvania at the Penn Top ball room Friday night, February 7, 2013 and, this year it was even more over the top than in past years.  I have never seen so many tiara’s in one room before – on people and dogs there!  The lavish event is a benefit every year for a different animal rescue group, and this year the Mayor’s Alliance of NYC was the beneficiary.  The event promotes dog adoption and the majority of the runway models, the dogs, were all dogs from various shelters looking for their furever homes.  The outrageous fashions and pomp and circumstance around the event is all about and for helping rescue groups and animals.  (And that my friends is the best part!)

Jill Rappaport from the Today Show, amazing animal adovate and rescuer too!

Darsey Mitchell and her famous dog Millie LaRue and animal adovate and rescuer Prince Lorenzo Borghese! (The theme of the night after all was Royalty!)

Amazing Therapy Dogs Beau (the Husky) and Bocker the Labradoodle saying hello! Both of these dogs and their humans, Caroline Loevner (Beau’s mom) and Marie (Bockers Mom) devote a tremendous amount of time volunteering as therapy dogs, helping other people so much.  It was great to see them and have them as the Big dogs representing!

Candy Udell of London Jewelers and Our Cause for Paws walked the runway too.

Summer Strand and Miss California and their pups!

The night began with pictures on the red carpet, provided by the Dirty Dog Doormat, it was red after all.

This adorable 8 year Pom was at the event, and up for adoption through Long Island’s Bobbi & the Strays Rescue group.

Hosted by Aida Nieves and Gregg Oehler, Publisher of Cesar’s Way Magazine and MC’d by  Maria Milito of Q104.3!

This was not for the humans, but for the dogs…by Frenchie’s Kitchen, fresh, healthy food for dogs. (Can’t wait for my Max to try some!)

This cutie was getting the royal treatment! BOL!!
