Step into the highly entertaining and most outrageous event of the year!
Trumpeting Wild Elephants, Taj Mahal Opulence, Vibrant Jewel Tones, and the Bhangra Beats of Bollywood. Welcome to CatWalk 2013 – Wild India! to benefit the Allen County SPCA - the region’s wildest party with a purpose!
Set against our newly-decorated themed backdrop, 500 of our area’s professional and philanthropic leaders attend the Grand Wayne Center’s must not miss event to be held on Saturday, November 9, 2013. We will be encouraging our guests to dress in black tie (optional) attire to top off the evening!
CatWalk 2013 - Wild India! features all of our usual flair with an Indian festival twist! Your adventure begins with a lively cocktail reception, followed by a scrumptious dinner by the bite from a large selection of “Bazaar Style” stations. Explore our silent auction and raffle items, and then culminate your evening with one-of-a-kind performances featuring dancers in costumes reminiscent of The Lion King on Broadway, designed and choreographed by local salons, dancers and artists!
CatWalk benefits homeless animals
The Allen County SPCA has been providing a safe haven for homeless cats and dogs in Northeast Indiana for more than 60 years. Our animals come to us from a variety of circumstances and require attention from the moment they arrive. Operating without any financial support from the government, the Allen County SPCA survives through the generosity of pet lovers in our community who wish to help dogs and cats in need.
Our organization provides a safe haven for stray and surrendered cats and dogs in our community until they find their permanent homes. Our limited intake facility offers an effective and comprehensive adoption program which places hundreds of dogs and cats into loving homes. While in our care, we provide medical and rehabilitation services as necessary to give the animals the best opportunity for adoption.
Fashionable & Furr-oscius Fun
Stylists and the Allen County SPCA team up to make a paw-sative impact for animals in need of good homes. Two local salons have joined forces to raise awareness and funds for a deserving service agency while generating some creative ideas in the process.
