About Us

Fashion for Paws® (F4P) benefiting the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) began in 2007 with the first spring Runway Show. In just its first 10 years, the Fashion for Paws® Runway Show has been a great success, selling out each year, raising nearly $4 million for HRA and generating a significant amount of national and regional media coverage.
