Humane Society of Grand Valley and GV Fashion Club are excited to announce the second annual Compassion in Fashion show! This year's show will once again feature a cat walk of clothing and accessories made exclusively from non-animal sources (no fur, leather, wool, silk) as offered by local businesses and original pieces from the GV Fashion Club. Info tables abound! Fur Testing Station: Learn 3 easy tricks to decipher real fur from faux fur and have the chance to put your own wardrobe to the test. The Coats for Cubs nonprofit will be accepting donations of any fur garments to be used at wildlife reconditioning centers to nurse young, orphaned animals back to health. Donations can be given to HSGV at the event, so find those old fur coats! Humane Shopper Station: Find out the many designers that have made a commitment to fur-free retail and receive samples of humane cosmetics and products. HSGV Info Table: Learn more about our club and get a free HSGV pin! But hurry, theyre sure to go fast. Also find out about the latest state and federal laws that affect animals. West Michigan Critter Haven Table: Meet the amazing people dedicated to rescuing Michigans littlest furry friends. Learn about pets up for adoption and becoming a foster. Maybe there will even be a furry friend there! You will have to come and see! Our speaker this year is Jill Fritz, Michigan State Director for Humane Society of the United States. She will be speaking about the practice of using animals for cosmetic testing purposes, and what this means for us as consumers. There will also be time to ask questions, and speak with her one-on-one. We will once again have a raffle of wonderful items from local businesses, and we have added a silent auction as well! All proceeds will benefit West Michigan Critter Haven and Kent County Animal Shelter. What better way to celebrate the beginning of a new semester than with a night of fun fashion and making a difference for animals!
