Shop at WearWoof! Be Gorgeous and Help Animals!

By Jolene, Suaz and Katie, Animal Friends' Communications Team

When the ladies of Animal Friends’ Communications department learned that WearWoof, a new clothing resale shop that benefits local animal organizations, was open for business, we couldn’t wait to hit the racks!

Today was the big day--field trip! WearWoof is located just 2 miles from Animal Friends, at 1105 Rochester Rd, Suite 103. Hungry for a lunch break and a little adventure, we headed out.
 
Here are Katie and Suaz, ready to donate a bag of clothes to the cause. When you make a donation of gently used women’s clothing or pet clothing and accessories to the WearWoof Shop, you support activities such as low-cost spay/neuter programs, Trap-Neuter-Release/Community Cat initiatives, the care and medical support of shelter animals, adoption events, education and community outreach and more.

Animal Friends is proud to be one of WearWoof's beneficiaries!





The store was perfect for animal-lovers like us. It's bright, inviting and adorable. While we browsed the shoes, dresses, party clothes, sweaters, jewelry and handbags, we admired the beautiful pet portraits on the walls.








Our favorite picks of the day were:



Katie: My choice was a very pretty, light blue wristlet.  (Matching nail polish was not planned but a happy coincidence). While every purchase at WearWoof benefits some local animal charity, my wristlet was donated by someone who wanted their proceeds donated to Animal Friends.  Double happy coincidences!

Lots of things caught my eye while at WearWoof, including an adorable Coach brand turtle keychain and a sky high pair of blue heels that were oh so chic.  I wasn’t sure if the keychain would fit on my key ring so I passed.  I was sure that I’d kill myself in the heels, so those were a pass as well.  “Rehoming Fashion” is a clever tag line and certainly rings true with the charities and shelters WearWoof donates to.  I was glad to give my little wristlet a new home and I look forward to using it this summer.  Who wants to carry around a heavy purse everywhere?  (Although if that heavy purse happens to be that Prada bag Jolene got…I might reconsider.)




Jolene: I was drawn like a magnet to this amazing Prada handbag! It retails new for $795 but was marked at $125 at WearWoof. Hmm...it suddenly seemed like a very, very nice way to help animals. I learned that the store frequently has items by Kate Spade and other designers. I can't wait to check back!




Suaz:  I love sparkles! I picked a set of bracelets and two iridescent necklaces!
