Humane Fort Wayne will host its 7th annual Pawject Runway red carpet event at 6 p.m. Oct. 9 at the Grand Wayne Center.

Platinum tickets are sold out, but Silver tickets at $75 are still available at or by calling 260-744-0454.

Pawject Runway features the creative talents of groomers from all over the tri-state area as they transform dogs into works of art and compete for top prizes. This year, 11 competing groomers will work the runway with their canine models while attendees enjoy photo ops, hor d’oeuvres, a cash bar and a live and silent auction, which will include some of the LoveSeats that can be seen around Downtown Fort Wayne until Oct. 8.

“Pawject Runway is such a fun event, and it’s the only one of its kind in Fort Wayne,” said Humane Fort Wayne Executive Director Jessica Henry. “It allows groomers to showcase their skills and pet lovers to support a great cause. If you’ve never seen creative grooming in action, prepare to be wowed! These dogs really do get transformed into works of art.”

All proceeds will go into helping pets and people in need through Humane Fort Wayne’s programs.
