Paws for the Cause Gala: Some of Our Fave Furry Friends


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. With a bustling room of pet lovers and furry friends, party goers sipped on SKYY Vodka cocktails and danced around our very special guests, famous photographer Theron Humphrey and his adorable coonhound Maddie.

Check out a few of my favourite decorative dogs of the evening!

When I started the charity three years ago, I had envisioned helping as many animals as possible. This year, I am pleased to announce that Paws for the Cause was able to raise $50,000. Proceeds of the money raised will benefit The Central Toronto Veterinary Referral Clinic (CTVRC), which helps subsidize life-saving care for pets, and provide a scholarship to a veterinary student at the University of Guelph.
