Got shoes you don’t use? Furry Faces Foundation’s Heels for Hounds

December 4, 2012 at 1:28 pm | In How to help, Pets, West Seattle news | 7 Comments

Just out of the WSB inbox – a call for donations to get ready for a Furry Faces Foundation benefit coming up after the holidays. Here’s the news release:

What is ‘Heels For Hounds,” you ask? It’s the newest in a line of fun-(d)-raisers benefiting Furry Faces Foundation, a.k.a., F3.

“Ola Salon and Clementine Shoes are sponsoring this event in early 2013 and to be successful, we need donations of new or very gently worn, nice, women’s shoes,” says Rachel Karlin, Ola Salon owner. “During the event, shoes will be tastefully displayed at Ola Salon. You will be able to try them on and if the shoe fits, bid on them.’

Linda Walsh, owner of Clementine Shoes, explains, “Many of us purchase shoes for that special occasion or outfit, take very good care of them and are then ready for a new pair of shoes. So, why not clean out your closets and ‘upcycle’ them to benefit animals and their people? Who knows, you may even find a pair or two at the event that you can’t live without!”

“We are very excited about this new event,” says Teri Ensley, F3 Leader. “It’s a creative idea for a fundraiser and we appreciate Ola Salon’s and Clementine Shoes’ enthusiasm and support.’

If you have new or gently worn shoes to donate, please bring them to:

Ola Salon: 2942 Avalon Way SW; 206-933-6702
Clementine Shoes: 4447 California Ave SW; 206-935-9400
Hotwire Online Coffeehouse: 4410 California Ave SW; 206-935-1510
The Wash Dog: 6400 California Avenue Southwest; 206-935-4546; www.thewashdog.com/

For breaking news and updates about this event, check out F3‘s Facebook page. Questions? furryfaces@hotmail.com

(Hotwire and The Wash Dog are WSB sponsors.)

  3. Ca, thanks for asking! We will be accepting donations starting now and going until the event actually happens.

    Our goal is to have the event near the end of February or sometime in March. It will somewhat depend on the number of shoe donations we receive.

    Kumalavula…you made us meow and bark out loud!

    Cheers, The F3 Gang

  6. The residents of homeless camp could use your shoes a lot more than a dog
