Unique Fashion Show Showcases Adoptable Pets


Homeless pets are trying a different tactic to grab the attention of potential adopters: They're hitting the catwalk. maurices at Metro Crossing in partnership with the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®), will host a fashion show on Saturday, September 18th, at Buffalo Wild Wings.



The show starts at 3:00 pm, featuring models wearing maurices' fall fashions who are accompanied by adoptable pets from local animal shelters. The goal is to raise support for animal shelters—and find permanent homes for the four-legged models.

"Our main goal with Rescues & Runways is to showcase local pets that need to find their 'forever homes,'" explained maurices Store Manager Jill Harshbarger. "We hope that shoppers who already love coming to maurices for our selection of fashions feel even better knowing that we're also doing our part to help local animal shelters."

The campaign continues throughout the month of September. People are invited to stop by maurices to donate pet supplies or a monetary gift, with all donations going directly to Council Bluffs Animal Shelter. As a thank you, maurices will give supporters a coupon for 20 percent off one regular-priced item.

maurices will also offer its exclusive Friends for Life charm in stores and online at www.maurices.com from now through October 31st, or while supplies last. Half of the charm can be worn by the pet and the other half can be worn by the pet's owner or a furry friend. The Friends for Life charm is $5, with $2.50 from every sale going to the ASPCA to support its national programs.
