By Rachel Demita, Special to OMG

MORE F4P: Perino, Portis and the Paws Come Out

Alongside the salon services, customers bought raffle tickets, participated in a silent auction, and over cupcakes and cocktails. Salon manager Shannon Cusello said “It’s a little hectic, but hectic is good; it means there are more people coming to help out.”

With such great feedback and support, Fashion for Paws is already planning upcoming events to benefit the WHS. “Our goal is to raise $12,000 for the Washington Humane Society,” explained Fashion for Paws Executive Director Tara de Nicolas.  Can’t donate.. maybe you can adopt 😉
