Bejeweled tails, tattooed fur, colourful extensions and multiple paws took the stage with CP24 host Melissa Grelo at the third annual Paws for the Cause #PawsGala. This year, I am pleased to announce that Paws for the Cause was able to raise $50,000. Check out a few of my favourite decorative dogs of the evening!
As a dog lover, I will always have the utmost respect and appreciation for the veterinarians that help keep our pups happy and healthy. A portion of proceeds from the Paws Gala will go toward the Chloe Award, which is a $5,000 scholarship that is awarded to an outstanding veterinary student. I wanted to catch up with the winner of the first-ever Chloe Award, University of Guelph veterinary student Francesca Di-Mauro.
