Light up the night to help pets in need


The Second Annual Brooklyn Bridge Pup Crawl

 First of all congratulations to Hickory, the Scottish Deerhound who won Best In Show in the 135th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show February 15, 2011. She is an absolutely gorgeous dog!

I’ve always found it fitting the Westminster Show was held around Valentine’s Day. Our pets show us unconditional love! One of the best things I have ever done was adopt Carmella. She has added immense happiness to my life. If you have a dog, chances are you know what I am talking about. I was interviewing Polly Blitzer, President of Beauty Blitz Media awhile back, when I learned she had just gotten Trixie, an absolutely adorable puppy. Then she, our hair and make-up stylist, and I promptly got out our phones to pass around the pictures of our canine beauties. I am told those watching us found it amusing!

 In 2009, The Brooklyn Bridge Pup Crawl was launched. It is an exciting nighttime walk across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge that raised funds for six non-profit partner shelter and rescue programs in New York, California and Florida. The second Brooklyn Bridge Pup Crawl will take place on Saturday, April 16, 2011 beginning at 5:30 PM in City Hall Park. Hundreds of pups and owners will convene in City Hall Park to mingle and share some puppy love before we enjoy a beautiful nighttime walk across the historic Brooklyn Bridge to take in the  Manhattan skyline and help to feed pets in need. Carmella and I will be there! Seeing all the lighted leashes on the bridge is a site to behold.

The mission of The Pup Crawl is to help shelters and rescue groups care for the millions of pets who lose their homes every year. You can register for the walk at http://www.thepupcrawl.com. The recommended donation to register for the Brooklyn Bridge Pup Crawl is $25 per human participant, which includes a free Pup Crawl Lights-Up Leash. All proceeds go to their six non-profit partners.  If you don’t live in a “Pup Crawl” location, you can still help the cause by buying leashes and encouraging your friends to get some, too.  $3 from every leash sale goes directly to a local animal shelter to help pets in need.
