Go Orange For Animals
As April approaches you might find yourself seeing orange as you and your pooch stroll through the concrete jungle past the Empire State Building giving off a bright orange light. No, there is nothing wrong with your vision; April marks the beginning of the ASPCA’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month. It’s only fitting that their signature color, orange was selected to represent this month.
On April 7th, you can show your support and join in on a celebration, Go Orange for Animals, in Union Square Park from 4-8pm with an all out event featuring pet adoptions, live music, refreshments and of course a variety of pet friendly activities.
Now, I’m guessing most of you are the over achiever type (like myself) who can’t fathom attending an event without having your pooch (and yourself) in full gear to show your support. I have taken the liberty of finding some fashion forward orange options for fido at local dog boutiques.
Wagwear in the East Village makes it easy for your dog to lead the way with the bright orange nylon Metropolitan Leash ($34.00) and collar ($18.00) set.
Peace loving pups can show support with the orange sunshine “Summer of Love” tank found at Trixie + Peanut on East 20th Street.
Or if you have a preppy protester pooch on your hands, Canine Styles on the Upper East Side has an orange polo tennis dress ($38.00) that will definitely make a statement.
