Back by popular demand, Friends of Yolo County Animal Shelter (FYCAS) invites everyone to join the fun at their 2nd annual “Pawject Runway” Dog Fashion Show fundraiser. It will be at The Hive in Woodland at 1221 Harter Ave. on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 3–7 p.m. Admission is Free.

The fashion show starts at 4:30 p.m. You can enter your pet in an outfit to compete for “best of” in various categories. FYCAS is asking for a $5 donation if you pre-register your dog online at or $10 to register the day of the event by 3:30 p.m. FYCAS asks that dog participants be friendly and fully vaccinated.

The Hive is putting together an exciting new menu just for this event. There will be amazing raffle prizes, door prizes (every 30 minutes), music, and a ton of fun.

This year Cassi, the national dog diving, skateboarding, Australian Shepherd is back to redeem herself to win a ribbon, but she is facing some stiff completion from Lulu the chi and Roscoe the husky.

This Pawject Runway event will help raise funds for:
1. An Adoption Mobile Van to host more off-site adoption events, bringing the animals to the people. It will also be a mobile clinic for microchipping (fewer unclaimed animals), basic vaccines (healthier animals), and licensing (legal animals).
2. Specialized Veterinary Care, because the county animal shelter has only one on-site veterinarian, who primarily does spay and neuters. While Friends created accounts with three off-site veterinarians to help abandoned animals with special medical needs, they are running out of funds.

The need to raise funds is great because the Yolo County Animal Services Shelter is at capacity. The shelter is working with fosters and rescues to find homes for all animals, but there is a need to increase adoptions. Friends of Yolo County Animal Services, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, has been a partner with our county animal shelter to help enhance the lives of animals at the Shelter and find them their furever homes. Please come to the event and support FYCAS.
