HOUSTON, Oct. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Rescued Pets Movement Inc. (RPM), the largest homeless animal rehabilitation and transport nonprofit in the United States, today announced that Fashion For Good: Houston will be hosting "Haute Dogs & Fancy Cats," a fashion show benefiting RPM. The event will be held on Thursday, November 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at Silver Street Studios. Tickets are available at https://houston.fashionforgood.co/tickets/. Individual tickets range from $45 to $175, and sponsorships range from $750 to $40,000.
The runway show will feature RPM supporters, social influencers, and models walking with their own pets (or with an RPM rescue dog if they choose) down the runway. Each "RPM HERO" will be dressed by a local Houston designer or store. This Fashion For Good event creates funds and awareness for RPM, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue organization that has saved over 38,000 lives, making new beginnings possible for homeless pets around Houston.
Matt Swinney, CEO of Fashion For Good, said, "Fashion For Good: Houston 2019 is incredibly excited to launch the first annual 'Haute Dogs & Fancy Cats' benefiting Rescued Pets Movement. Haute Dogs combines animal rescue with fashion––bringing the catwalk (err, dogwalk) to Houston. While our past fashion show productions have partnered with charities and sustainable designers, Haute Dogs is a unique and fun platform to raise money for Rescued Pets Movement, an incredible nonprofit that has saved over 38,000 homeless animals since 2013. Tickets, sponsorships and runway appearances are still available."
Laura Hanley Carlock, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of RPM, added, "We are so grateful to Fashion For Good for shining a light on Houston's homeless animal problem and supporting RPM's efforts to save as many animals as possible. They have produced a fabulous fashion show with some of the hottest Houston designers and stores. You and your pup (or an RPM pup) can take to the runway, or if you don't want to strut your stuff on the catwalk, you are guaranteed a great time, especially in the VIP Lounge. You will also have the opportunity to mingle with some of RPM's biggest supporters––some of whom you've seen on TV!"
