It’s the news you’ve been waiting for: All four dogs at our Puppies + Polish event this past October have been adopted! Hip hip hooray! And while Acorn, Autumn, Milo, and Mocha settle into their new homes, we wanted to share some highlights from the event, which blended rescue awareness with a day of beauty.
On October 21st, guests filed into Van Court Studio in New York City and were met with delicious eats, courtesy of ONEHOPE Wine and Bonbite, and a beauty swag bag. The room filled quickly as attendees played with adoptable pups from Social Tees Animal Rescue, waited patiently for manis with Van Court pros, and got braids by Joli Beauty Bar. Over 120 people showed, posting puppy selfies in real time, which helped us raise awareness and over $2,000 for the no-kill animal sanctuary.
The impact reached far beyond a monetary donation as each pup present found a forever home, and new foster parents were signed.
None of it would have been possible without the vendors, attendees, influencers, and technicians who donated time, services, and goods to make this event a huge success. THANK YOU! With your help we are one step closer to ensuring that every abandoned animal finds a safe and loving home. #AdoptDontShop

Thank you to everyone who came out to Puppies & Polish and for those who helped spread the word. Because of you, all the dogs will go to good homes and we raised over $2K, a (large) portion of which will go to @socialteesnyc. Feeling so much gratitude for our partners who helped make this happen: @socialteesnyc @actsoflipstick @jolibeautynyc @markgarrisonsalon @onehope @bonbitenyc. And thank you to the brands who stocked our gift bag.
