Join Long Island Against Domestic Violence and TD Bank for a fun and fur-filled afternoon of performers, vendors and decked-out pups–all the raise money for LI Against Domestic Violence’s life-saving services. When victims of domestic abuse delay their escape because of their pets, LI Against Domestic Violence steps in to find safe places for pets to go. To get details on this worthwhile event, check out Paws for a Cause!
Up to 65% of domestic violence victims delay or cannot escape their abusers because they are concerned about what will happen to their pets when they leave. TD Bank’s Paws for a Cause will raise awareness and funds to support L.I. Against Domestic Violence’s life-saving services. They are working to reduce this statistic by partnering with local animal organizations to ensure that pets have a safe place to go when a victim of domestic violence enters their shelter or goes to stay with a family member or friend where a pet cannot be accommodated.
Join them for a fun and fur-filled afternoon with performers, vendors and decked out pups as they strut their stuff on the runway! Register your pup and he/she can participate in the fashion show as well! There will also be an adoption meet & greet hosted by the Islip Animal Shelter. Only non-aggressive pets that are registered in the fashion show will be permitted to attend this event.
$30 Dog Fashion Show Registration & One Owner
$15 General Event Admission Per Person
$10 Children under 10 Years Old
