Tickets Going Fast For Allen County SPCA’s Pawject Runway

Tickets are going fast for the Allen County SPCA’s 4th Annual Pawject Runway, an exciting red carpet event to be held at the Ramada Plaza Fort Wayne Hotel and Conference Center on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 6 PM. This event will sell out!

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. While competitors work the runway, attendees will enjoy photo ops from the "puparazzi," silent auction, hor d’oeuvres, cash bar, and more.

"This is such a fun event, and it’s the only one of its kind in Fort Wayne," said Allen County SPCA 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 from Pawject Runway benefit the Allen County SPCA’s Angel Fund, which provides medical treatment for severely injured or ill shelter pets.

Platinum (front row) seating is sold out, but a limited number Gold (second and third row) and general admission tickets are still available. Tickets can be purchased online at or by phone at 260-744-0454.
