Secondhand Hounds Dogs & Designs Fashion Show
Secondhand Hounds rescues, heals, fosters, and finds forever homes for at-risk dogs and cats. The are the second largest pet rescue group in Minnesota! Four-legged friends looking for a permanent home walked the runway in exclusive outfits designed by local designers from design programs around the Twin Cities. A panel of judges awarded prizes to the 1st and 2nd place designers. In between fashion shows, a K9 meet & greet was held with members from the MOA K9 team which was fun to see. I had a BLAST volunteering in the Puppy Pen, where I helped people hold the dogs and told them more about Secondhand Hounds history and the importance of rescue. One of my main jobs was to try and get people to use the hashtag #rescuerunway during the event on Twitter and Instagram, because for every hashtag, the MOA donated up to $1000 to SHH! My pageant friend Giselle Ugarte (of 96.3 radio) was hosting so it was fun to run into her as well. Definitely an event not to miss!
