Can You Find These Dogs A Loving Home?
The Outlets of Colorado and Larimer Humane Society will host families and their canine companions at the Outlets at Loveland for a day of fashion and fun on Saturday, May 7 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Ten adoptable dogs, each poised to endear a friend or family and a new home, will be groomed, attired in Petsense® Fashions and escorted down the runway by their human model companions at the first ever Take a Bow Wow event.
This free pet expo and pet fashion show will feature regional vendors like Tail Waggin’ Mobile Pet Grooming, the provider of the ‘salon services’ for the featured Larimer Humane Society dogs. Booths and demonstrations will be provided by Doggie Dips and Chips, Bones Du Jour, Precious Memories, TryMyWork.com, Aspen Grove Veterinary Clinic, Rovers Ranch, Off Leash Training, Spa 4 Paws and more.
Immediately after the dog fashion show, Take a Bow Wow will host a modeling contest honoring one pooch through the Outlets of Colorado’s Strike a Pose model search contest. Treats and prizes for both four-legged and two-legged attendees are planned. All proceeds from Take a Bow Wow will benefit Larimer Humane Society.
The brilliant idea behind Take a Bow Wow is to match up these adorable shelter dogs with just the right families and individuals for adoption. They’ll be attired in accessories and clothes from the Outlets at Castle Rock’s boutique store Petsense®, where dog fashions are available at outlet prices of half off, every day. The shelter dogs will be groomed in anticipation of this runway event and accompanied by the stylish Strike a Pose amateur models, who represent the Outlets of Colorado for one year after winning the human version of the Outlets’ modeling contest each spring. The human models will also showcase fashions from some of the 300 retail outlets within the Outlets of Colorado centers in Castle Rock, Loveland and Silverthorne.
“Larimer Humane Society is delighted to be the charitable partner with the Outlets of Colorado for this first-ever event,” said Marcie Williams, Community Relations Manager for Larimer Humane Society. “These pets, and many more like them at the shelter, are ready to be welcomed into compassionate homes.”
Pet owners with a particularly photogenic pup can enter him or her in the Strike a Pose Dog Modeling Contest, to vie for the crown of the Outlets of Colorado Strike a Pose Dog. The winning dog will receive a three-day, two-night vacation for his or her family at Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs, a pet-friendly resort property. The prize package also includes a $150 gift card for shopping at the Outlets at Loveland, a pet modeling portfolio card with a professional photograph, a June fashion shoot alongside the human Strike a Pose model contest winners and on-air appearances on select television segments for the period of a year.
Countless individuals and organizations have stepped up to do their part of make this Larimer Humane Society benefit event a success. Tail Waggin’ Mobile Pet Grooming, the mobile grooming outfit that is a favorite of many pet owners around northern Colorado, will be on site at Take a Bow Wow. This unique grooming service has a self-contained tub, table, freshwater tank, generator and hot water heater in its Dalmatian-themed van. Owner Mitzi Jones will perform the ‘makeovers’ on all ten of the adoptable dogs. “Dogs, who are essentially pack animals, really enjoy all the favorable attention they receive after being pampered and groomed,” said Jones. “I’m excited to do my part for these animals and help them put their best foot forward for their Take a Bow Wow appearances.”
The Boy Scouts of America, Longs Peak Council, will be on clean up duty and will assist visitors with information on the day’s events and schedule at Take a Bow Wow.
