Dogs, cats will accompany models

SPOKANE VALLEY MALL – Just this once, it really will be a catwalk.

Maurices in the Spokane Valley Mall will host a catwalk event today with actual dogs and cats during the store’s annual Rescues and Runways event. The pets looking for a good home will start strutting their stuff at 2 p.m., but there will be pets available all day for viewing and adoptions.

The fashion show will feature models wearing Maurices fall fashions accompanied by the animals. The event also includes a silent auction to benefit the Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service and the Spokane Humane Society.

During September the Maurices locations at the Valley Mall and NorthTown Mall will accept donations of pet supplies and money to benefit the two animal shelters. People who drop off a donation will receive a coupon worth 20 percent off any one regular-priced item in the store.
