Doggywood: Unleashed

On Friday September 30th, some of SteppingStones’ staff took part in the Cayman Islands Humane Society fashion show, Doggywood: Fashion Unleashed.

Held at the Ritz Carlton, the red carpet event included a fashion show (dog and human!), buffet, fashion boutique, and silent auction.  After guests enjoyed the delicious buffet, they were treated to a fashion show including several of our furry friends, dogs up for adoption at the Cayman Islands Humane Society.  The dogs looked very smart in their black and white ties and impressed the crowd as they sashayed down the runway, showing off weeks of obedience training!  This was followed by a fashion show including Miss Cayman and many other lovely ladies modelling a gorgeous array of dresses donated by some very generous local sponsors.

The night was a great success for the shelter, with all auction items and most dresses being sold.  SteppingStones Staffing Coordinator and dog-lover Lindsey Gordon organized the large group of volunteers for the night, including several of our temporary and permanent staff and alumnae, ensuring everything ran smoothly.  The Cayman Islands Humane Society relies on these events and the generosity of the attendees to raise funds that go directly to the day to day operations and care of the shelter animals.  As a result of the event, two of the dogs involved in the show were adopted by loving families.
