Annyssa & I left the Meet Purina event EXTRA bright and early… at a time we probably haven’t seen on the clock intentionally since… ever (pic in previous post).  It was so early the sun wasn’t up, Annyssa wasn’t coherent nor speaking normal english, I slept in the clothes I planned to wear the next day. All the meanwhile Mulligan was still snoring in bed refusing to get up! Yet today was a special day with a fun event ahead – the “Adopt & Shop” event we had planned with Maude Boutique. I had been anticipating this event for quite some time & we had several hours to drive in order to make it there on time! We left at 5:00am and I literally drove five hours straight from St. Louis straight into the Maude Boutique parking lot… right on time! Ok maybe a few minutes late…

This event was designed with the shelter in mind! Shoppers were able to come shop & see some of the wonderful dogs Springdale Animal Shelter had to offer, while knowing that a percentage of all sales were being donated to the shelter! This is what I like to call having your cake and eating it too! You got to buy things you already wanted, have a percentage of it go to the animal shelter (which justifies the spending, duh!), see available dogs up for adoption AND the dogs got to have an amazing time NOT AT THE SHELTER! WINNING!!!

The tent for this event was spectacular!! They had water bowls for the dogs, decorations, and TONS of goodies for those who stopped by! Including Krauft Cookies, who made another huge donation to the Mulligan Movement by donating cookies for this event!!

Getting kisses from our good friend Payton, who wrote our 3WMagazine article earlier this year!

This was a great day filled with dogs, fun, friends & more! We were able to raise a few hundred dollars that was donated to Springdale Animal Shelter (where Mulligan is from).  The funds raised will be used to help provide medical care & needs to the current residents there!

Huge THANK YOU to Becca & Maude Boutique for having us and hosting this event! It is so rewarding to see the community work together with the Mulligan Movement in its efforts to redefine the image of shelter pets & better the local shelters!

I especially love when kids get to see & learn about the shelter! How cute is Aubree in her Mulligan tank with her Krauft cookie!!
