A dog adoption event in Lauderhill on Sunday was intended to help find homes for many dogs who are currently living in animal shelters. During the event, dogs had the opportunity to parade in front of approximately 300 people who attended the event, in order to show themselves and hopefully get adopted, reported the Sun Sentinel.
Sunday, the Spring Bling Fur Paws Red Carpet Event included eight different shelters who participated in the event. The main attraction of the event was a fashion show where the shelters each had the opportunity to dress several of their dogs up and show them off for potential new owners. Most of the dogs were dressed to impress with clothing, jewelry and other accessories.
The event also had a look-alike contest, a trick contest and “Cutest Dog” contest, according to the Sun Sentinel.
The event was held at off Oakland Park Boulevard and there was food, shopping, animal service and donation booths lining the parking lot.
The event should be considered a success, as about 20 dogs were adopted, according to the Sun Sentinel and an unknown amount of money was raised; however, it was said to be a large sum.
