About Us

f4p png logoFashion for Paws® (F4P) benefiting the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) began in 2007 with the first spring Runway Show. In just its first 10 years, the Fashion for Paws® Runway Show has been a great success, selling out each year, raising nearly $4 million for HRA and generating a significant amount of national and regional media coverage.

Notables involved have included: Marie Osmond, Val Kilmer, E! News' Ashlan Gorse, former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, Redskin Fred Davis, Entertainment Tonight's Lawrence Zarian, Animal Planet’s Victoria Stilwell, Italian Ambassador Giovanni Castellaneta, MSNBC’s, Luke Russert, CNN International's Philippe Cousteau, Fox News Channel’s Courtney Friel, CW/VHI’s Paul Wharton, DeepDish’s Arash Shirazi, ABC7’s Steve Chenevey, ABC’s Scott Thuman, NBC's Angie Goff, ESPN’s Lindsay Czarniak, and previous Event Chairman, MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor.

Participants:

The participants walking the runway are Humane Rescue Alliance ambassadors who raise a minimum of $3,500 for HRA to participate, with many escorting their fashionably dressed dog down the runway. The event features an awards presentation to honor the F4P top fundraiser, winning "Model Washingtonian of the Year," and the first and second runner-up on the runway May 5, 2018. The winners will be chosen based on who has raised the most money in a friendly fundraising competition in the 12 weeks leading up to the event. All ambassadors who raise $10,000+ will be acknowledged as HRA Hero's.

The Runway Show Event:

There are VIP seated tables ranging from $3,500 to $7,000 and a very limited number of special $10,000 tables that are located right next to the runway. Table guests are served a three-course meal and are invited to arrive early for a VIP Reception beginning at 7:00 PM. VIP Tickets ($220) are available and will be located behind the tables. General Admission Tickets ($120) are available and will be located in a special section with views of the runway.
