A fashion show for dogs titled Patterns for Paws was held on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2011, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The show featured dogs, some from the Broward County Humane Society, wearing clothes that had been created by area designers. The event was organized to raise funds for sheltering, caring and providing medical treatment to homeless pets. Rescue officials hoped to raise more than $25,000 from the event.
The Amanda Foundation, the organization behind the show, was founded in 1976 and has since placed thousands of homeless animals, and up to 10,000 adoptions a year.
