Way back in December, we told you about Furry Faces Foundation collecting ‘gently used’ women’s shoes for a first-of-its-kind auction event, Heels for Hounds. Now, the event is just days away – this Sunday (April 21) – and F3 is still accepting donations:

The Heels For Hounds weekend has arrived! We have somewhere between 150 – 200 pairs of shoes for the auction, with more being donated every day. In fact, folks can bring gently worn shoes to the event!

Donation locations before then:

Ola Salon: 2942 Avalon Way SW; 206-933-6702;
Clementine Shoes: 4447 California Ave SW; 206-935-9400;

  1. Thanks WSB!

    We will start posting photos on Saturday of some of the shoes that will be available for your bidding pleasure!

    Sizes range from 6 to 10; and starting bids are at $5, $10, $15 or $20. Great selection. Great pricing; Great Animale Wine! All for a great cause–helping people with their animals.

  3. Hi Carraig na Splinkeen!

    Thank you for asking. Ola Salon, the site of the Heels For Hounds event, is probably the best-est last place. They are open today until 6 or 7, and again tomorrow until 5:00 pm ;0)

    We will be accepting shoes donations right at the event, so if you want to stop by on Sunday, the event is from 3 – 6 pm!

    Thanks for your generosity!

    Cheers, The F3 Gang
