Handbags Are a Dog's Best Friend

Luna Boston Hosts a Pet Fête to the Benefit Companion Animal Protection Society

(Boston, MA) -   Tails are sure to wag on Friday, June 12th as Luna Boston hosts “Doggies + Bags,” a special benefit party for the Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS).

From 4-7pm, Bostonians are welcome to bring their pooches by Luna Boston's boutique at 205 Newbury St. to shop brand new handbags and accessories from Rebecca Minkoff, Treesje, House of Harlow & more.  A Luna Boston stylist will be on-hand to help you update your wardrobe for summer with the latest trends, and twenty-five percent of all proceeds made during the event will be donated to help CAPS in its mission to protect companions from cruelty and inhumane breeding practices in Pet Shops and Puppy Mills. 

In addition, delicious doggy treats from the South End's Polka Dog Bakery will be served to all four-legged guests, while their owners can enjoy some post-work wine.  

Can't make it over to Newbury St. with your furry friend?  You may miss out on the vino and treats, but you can support the cause online by entering code “CAPS” during checkout at anytime on June 12th.
