Ho Ho Ho! Dara Foster is back from her style-cation through the pup-nation and ready to chat about dog fashion and design. Join Dara for a fun conversation with her two favorite “brands with compassion”- Toru and Planet Dog. Both of these companies have their own unique approach to designing high-style pet products with a mission for saving lives and funding service dog programs.
“Listen in as I talk with Susan Levine and Vanessa Rossman, the wonder duo behind the popular rescue wear brand Toru.com to get the behind the scenes scoop on the making of the popular Rescues Rock The Runway 2011 calendar. How did they get those dogs to walk on two legs with angel wings alla Victoria Secret runway show? 5% of every calendar sale goes directly to Paws 4 You Rescue and they’re even offering FREE shipping for our listeners by entering code: RESCUESROCK 11″
