    Dogs will take over the catwalk this weekend.

    The Fashion for Paws (F4P) Runway Show, featuring human AND dog models, will return for the 10th year in a row to raise money for the Washington Humane Society.

    The pup-filled fashion show will take place on April 23 from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. at the Grand Hyatt Washington (1000 H St. NW).

    "Fundraising models" compete to raise the most money for the fashion event in the 12 weeks before the show. The model to raise the most money will be named “Model Washington of the Year.” Many models strut down the catwalk with their pups, who will be dressed in “canine couture,” according to a press release.

    General admission to the event is $100, VIP tickets are $200, and a limited number of VIP tables range from $3,000-$10,000. General admission includes an open bar, appetizers, standing room for the fashion show, music and dancing. VIP tickets include an open bar, appetizers, cocktail table seating and early entrance to a VIP Reception at 7 p.m. VIP tables are right by the runway offering front-row seating, along with a 3-course meal, open bar, reception and dance party. Purchase tickets here.

    The Fashion for Paws event has raised more than $3.6 million in the past nine years, helping the 51,000 animals the WHS takes in every year.

    More than 53,000 pets were adopted through the 2016 Clear the Shelters campaign, a nationwide push to place deserving animals in forever homes. Join the conversation on social media using #ClearTheShelters.
