Put your fashionable foot forward at the 5th annual Walk In Style For The Animals – founded by activist Angela Birdman — teaming up with Bal Harbour Shops this Valentine’s Day for ‘Puppy Love,’ a stylish Valentine’s Day party for people and their pets. Hosted by Birdman, guests will sip chilled bubbles by Fashion Prosecco, taste bites from Le Zoo, and listen to the sexy sounds of the DJ. The “Rescue Runway” will feature fashion models from John Varvatos and Oscar de La Renta, each one walking with an adorable and adoptable pup from Big Dog Ranch Rescue-located in Palm Beach, the largest no-kill, cage free dog shelter in the US. All monies from ticket sales, raffles, and donations says Birdman, will go to the “Emergency Medical Fund” which helps to care for the most at risk and vulnerable dogs from Miami-Dade Animal Services, Redlands, and the Miami-Dade area.

“It’s how I always envisioned this event,” says Birdman, a Big Dog Ranch Rescue board member. “People love to eat, drink and have fun while knowing that the money is going to a great cause.”

The raffle features amazing prizes such as a $1790 Oscar de La Renta handbag and a gold donut filled with Cristal Champagne jelly and covered with 24k edible gold. There’s also an adorable custom designed T-shirt.
