Bittersweet Boutique together with 22 Tzu Pet Photography will hold its inaugural Paws for a Cause from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Aug. 9 at 112 N. Beaton St., to benefit the Humane Society of Navarro County and the Corsicana Animal Shelter.
At the all-day event, Erin Abay of 22 Tzu will do pet photographs in the Pocket Park while Angel Schiffer of Bittersweet Boutique creates dog-friendly treats for sale, with 35 percent of the profits from the day going to the Humane Society of Navarro County and the shelter.
“We are also asking for donations,” Abay said. “If you bring a donation, you will receive a free cupcake.”
Donations would include rope toys, tennis balls, and cleaning supplies (bleach), which are all desperately needed at the Animal Shelter.
Pet photographs will be from 12 to 2 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. in the Pocket Park, and the all natural gourmet dog treats will be available next door at Bittersweet Boutique. For $15, you receive five high-quality edited images of your pet sent to you through email or on a CD sent by USPS mail. Pet owners may then print their images at a photo lab of their choice, share them on Facebook, or use them for Christmas cards, etc.
