San Marcos local fashionistas gathered on Sunday afternoon to step on the runway and showcase their modeling abilities. Three Dudes Winery was filled with excitement, camera flashes, and live music by a local band Riversyde. Models were looking fierce in their Valentine’s Day themed costumes while anxiously getting ready for their walk. Instead of the heel clacking though, there was an unfamiliar sound of paw steps. Indeed, the models were pets participating in donation based sWag Your Tails fashion show, organized by the Human Environmental Animal Team, as a benefit to PAWS Shelter & Humane Society. PAWS representatives were also in attendance with a number of dogs ready for adoption. The first one to step on the runway was a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever Terrier mix named Lucky. Her name became her talisman as she got adopted at the end of the event. Visitors were encouraged to bring their own pets and partake in animal fun as well as enjoy face painting and have fun in a photo booth with their favorite models. Lily Lowder, the owner of poodle Phoebe, shared her opinion about the event.

“I loved it! I think it was a cute idea to show off the dogs that need some love and a home.”
– Lily Lowder

Lowder also said that fashion show was a good way for dogs to socialize and have an exciting experience.

“This was the perfect opportunity for Phoebe to show off the diva that she is.”
– Lily Lowder

HEAT animal committee director and the hostess of the fashion show Kirsten Peek said the fashion show was a success.

“We had a pretty good turn out. We had like 50 dogs who had gone down the runway throughout the day because we ran the show twice.”
– Kirsten Peek

Peek also said the City of San Marcos animal shelter is considered to have relatively high kill rate and all of the donations from the fashion show will go into the Leilani Fund, which rescues animals from municipal shelters.
