Join us for a fantastic, red-carpet runway spectacular as groomers from around the region compete for prizes and bragging rights at the 7th Annual Pawject Runway! Watch as professional groomers transform their canine models into works of art and rock the runway in the area’s only creative grooming competition!

All proceeds will benefit pets (and people) in need through Humane Fort Wayne’s lifesaving programs.

We’ll see you on the red carpet!
